A very short lesson in manners for journalists

30 March 2010

From The Hindustan Times:

“During an interaction with women journalists, Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan turned the tables on a young journalist. The journalist asked, ‘Agar Sonia [Gandhi] aap ko bulayengi to kya aap Congress mein jaoge? (Will you join the Congress if Sonia calls you?)’

“Bachchan’s reply came pat: ‘You refer to her as if she were your relative. She is a very senior person, a respected leader of a national political party and definitely older than you. You must have some respect when you refer to such senior people,’ she said.”
