Every custom has their own way of greeting people. Some of the western countries kisses the cheek, holds by the hands, bows their head in a specific gesture, while greeting their guests. And we greet with folded hands by uttering NAMASTE with a shoothing voice.
Once I had gone through a picture comedy over funtoosh. There, the Korean presidant visited USA along with his wife. On arrival at the USA, the than presidant of America, George Bush greeted the Korean counterpart to their country. Bush stepped forward and kissed the wife of Korean Presidant by her cheek. The Korean presidant was watching this act of Bush and felt little uneasy or we may say embarassed. As the tour of the Korean Presidant ended, he returned to his own country leaving an invitation for Presidant Bush to visit his country too.
Time passed and finally a day came when George Bush decided a trip to Korea. He boarded to the aircraft heading Korea. There was the Korean Presidant along with his wife at the airport at Seol to greet Bush. Bush was parading towards the Korean presidant. As he finished greeting Bush, than the American presidant look for the wife of Korean Presidant. The korean Presidant can sense the future and push aside his wife just making a way for Bush to leave for the Car arranged for him.
The entire story was explained with two pictures with subtitles. In the first it was written visit of Korean Presidant at the United States and in the second one it was written trip of George Bush to Korea.
I wish I could have placed the pictures too along with my writings, but it would be considered coppied content as I had got them downloaded from the net itself.
After going through the pictorial fun, I was thinking to myself,
OUR WAY OF GREETING PEOPLE WITH FOLDED HAND IS THE BEST AMONG ALL THE CUSTOMS OF THE WORLD.
BY SIMPLY SAYING NAMASTE
