She expressed concern that the society today is being marred by lack of discipline and manners especially among the youths.

Besides, the relationship of mutual respect, love and care of the people, friends and family members are slowly fading away, she said and highlighted the importance of art forms like ‘Goura Leela’ in arousing discipline, manners and respect for elders.
