India's star pistol shooter Heena Sidhu, 28, had a unique experience in Japan recently on the sidelines of the 10th Asian Championships in Wako City. The leading markswoman won a bronze in the pistol event. We're not referring to that though. Instead, this is about an off-the-range incident that left her wiser.

Heena took to Twitter to explain what happened: "In Japan tipping is considered rude. On our first day, the waiter refused a tip when we offered it for one of the best services we have ever had. We later learned that they believe their job is to do a good job and just a thank you is enough. Life lesson to be learned." We agree!
