The kneeling culture

A Senior DIG is reported to have ordered some 100 officers to kneel, following a sergeant being nabbed while soliciting a bribe.  Now this is very different from a politico-thug getting a teacher to kneel down for reprimanding his daughter.  The IGP has ordered an inquiry, though.  Back in the day, going on knees was to venerate, either priest, parent or teacher.  Today people 'kneel' in so many ways.  They kneel with knees, they kneel with words, they kneel with deed.  Maybe slavery has made a come back!
