If/Else Blocks and Curly Brackets

Are curly brackets required on every if/else block? I have seen if/else code without them. Why?

    Some use it by convention, easier to read. Just how they make classes names in java start with capital letters, though it's not a must

    Curly Brackets are not mandatory in every if/else block, how ever in order to make your code more readable (i.e; easily distinguish the nested if else block of code ) you should use the curly brackets.
