A lovely humid Wednesday night. Was waiting outside theatre 5 to see the latest whatever instalment of Terminator when I saw a family of four; a guy, a lady and two girls. About 6 & 9. I was wondering why they are taking their kids to a 7.30pm movie on a school night. Okay, maybe school has not started yet.  To my horror they went inside theatre 5! I checked my ticket, maybe I was at the wrong theatre. Nope. Terminator at theatre 5. Okay, maybe this was a new kind of terminator. I checked my mobile. Nope it's rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and gunplay throughout, partial nudity and brief strong language. How do you expect your kids to respect rules when you show them it's okay to break rules? Action speaks louder than words.

I agree entirely. The best and effective education and as we say in Hindu way of life " Sanskaars " is imparted by way of setting exemplary behavior on our part.
