A polite person is someone who treats everyone with respect. No matter how rudely we sometimes behave, we always enjoy the company of a polite person. A polite person often not only lifts the mood of the person sitting next to them but also changes the dignity of the whole place around them.

SAMPLE ANSWER 2
Politeness has been one of the traits I have always admired in people. It shows to me the fact that in the end, we all are best when we behave as humans. Although there have been many I have encountered, I found my mother the most polite person I know. She is one of the most soft-spoken people in our entire family. Not only does she respects people she knows, but she is respectful to everyone who interacts with her.
Recently, a beggar was roaming around in our colony asking for either food or money and while everyone disrespectfully asked the person to move, my mother not only gave him respect but also food and money. On asking her why she did that, she replied that “everyone deserves to be treated respectfully, irrespective of their position, behavior or clothing.”
My mother has always tried instilling these qualities in both of her kids, although we are not as kind as her, we try to follow her teaching of respecting every individual.
SAMPLE ANSWER 3 (Writer: Bhumika)
Being polite and respectful to others is a good quality and makes us a
good person. Today I would like to talk about someone I know who is
very polite. She is a helper at my college. Her name is Kamla. Kamla
aunty is in her late thirties. She is a stout woman with long hairs
and wears salwar kameez. She works as a helping staff at my college
since last ten years. I know her since I joined my college. In fact
everyone in the college knows her and respect her, and calls her Kamla
Kamala didi is very helpful, I have seen her that many times she goes
out of the ways to help others which is the reason why everyone at
college loves her. She is always ready to help others be it anything.
I remember once when I had gone to the college and I was not well. I
had a heavy bag of books with me and my classroom was on the fourth
floor. Kamla aunty sensed that, I was unwell that day and helped me
reach to the fourth floor and also carried my heavy bag herself. She
keeps helping others be it in a big or small way.
However, there are some higher authorities in our college who are ill
tempered but Kamla didi always respects them and obeys whatever they
say. Not only that, she is a very helpful colleagues. She always helps
them and sometimes does their work also.
I think she is a perfect role model for us. She never shows that she
has done anyone a favour. She teaches us how to be polite and help
