Subject:  Return my gratitude?
Question:  An ederly Indian gentleman takes a stroll through our neighborhood every morning. Even though his English is very limited, he always stop and greet my children and I on the way to school. Sometimes even giving my two children sweets to eat! I would like to return my gratitude but was wondering if it was appropriate in Indian culture to give a man a gift? I do know he is married because he walks with his wife sometimes in the evening. Please advise. Thank you in advance for your help. Tammy

You should show that you are a good neighbour by inviting them to Tea or Dinner.

Subject:  no pets allowed
Question:  hi,

i have been living in a rented apartment since the past 1 and half year, now all of sudden they are saying that pets are not allowed, they do not have a society so far so they cant push the same on me as now, however they say that they will form a society and make sure that they put such a rule in, their argument is that my dog is aggresive which he is not, they seem the mistake his playfulness as his aggressiveness he is 7 month lab who is anything but agressive, their pretext is potential harm to kids in the society, however there has not been one instance of such a thing happening, i also agreed to the fact that i will make sure that i take my dog from the parking area rather than the open entrance area, also i have requested them to probably come up with a schdule when i can possibly take my dog down which they dont seem to agree to, i love the apartment that i am staying in so really dont want to shift, how legal is it for them to enforce such a rule, also is there any way that i can convince them the other way or avoid me loosing my pet or giving up my apartment

Regards, Tridiv Mistry
