Rules Do Not See Whether You Are In or Out the Playground
Ekaterina Makarova, a 22-year-old Russian tennis player, surprised the audience at the Australian Open ground by leaving the court to change her dress during the match. She did so upon the umpire’s asking who noticed a large logo on the front of the player’s shirt. Logos more than four square inches are not allowed in the front part of the player shirt, according to the Gram Slam rules.
According to the official Grand Slam rules book, the purpose of the rules is a fair and orderly administration of the four Grand Slams. Mariana Alves, an umpire at the Australian Open noticed this over-sized logo when the player was warming up. Although, this act of the umpire delayed a fourth-round match, it delivers the message that rules are meant to be followed no matter whether you are playing or not.
Rules are a bunch of well-stated principles that are mandatory for the smooth functioning of human societies. They are made by people by keeping in view the cumulative interests of the public. Those who break them possess some kind of rebellious nature, which is detrimental to group life. Basically, the purpose of rules is to create coordination between the activities of a group of people in order to achieve varying goals.
To put it briefly, Mariana Alves rejuvenated the depleting glory of discipline in human societies worldwide irrespective of all kinds of cultural and demographic differences.
