Respect is something... you earn

I just scanned twitter feed today. First a disclaimer - I am not a cricket fan... rather, I am a cricket illiterate who doesn't even understand much of it (forget about stats people remember). Last match I watched on tv was cricket world cup final at friends place :)

But the tweets I saw about Rahul Dravid... surprisingly, even jokes about him has respect for him !
I salute him as a gentleman !

Respect is what you get mostly for what you are as a person... (at least thats what I feel) and not because you are intelligent, or because you are rich, talented, beautiful etc.

on another note, I tweeted yesterday that... "A true proud moment is getting respect from someone you truly respect."
