Taking permission is better than saying sorry for any mistake, or hurting anybody. Do we really take it when it is required or just ignore it?

At Beach

As we toured one beach after another, we took lots of pleasure in snappingour cameras. Without observing that one of us was going to shoot, an Indian passed by, leaving one unsure about thepicture. Some foreigners sought our permission to take our photographs. We did not agree. Here I want to highlight that we come across some people who take immense pleasure in taking photographs with cameras or mobile cameras without any permission or in secret.

At Old Goa

Later at Old Goa, two foreigners had enough patience to wait till my colleague had snapped his camera. At this point they understood what we were doing and we understood why they waited even though no words were exchanged. I can give another instance of unloading bricks in front of one's house without any permission or without the idea whether one likes it or not.

The Basic Manner of Taking Permission

It seems we went so far in embracing the west that we sometimes or often forget the basic manner of taking permission while the west still possess it. Some even feel that by asking permission they appear miserable before the person they ask from. Nonetheless taking permission always saves one from hurting one's feeling.

So taking permission is better than saying sorry for any mistake, or hurting anybody. "Think before you act and if required take permission before you act."
