Friends, we have a tough subject today to speak
on, that is, people. The word “people” is used with
respect sometimes and with not so much respect the other times.
What do we understand by the word?
We are all people and part of the people. There is
nothing more than people in this world. People are the group of
all persons in our family, friends, the society, all persons in
