Lesson 1 – Greetings And Introductions-How to greet a person in Hindi?

GREETINGS

When you meet someone, you say, “Namasthe” or “Namaskaar”, with folded hands as a form of greeting in India.

The following titles are used for people.

Using “ji” is a respectful way of addressing a person, any person who may be a colleague,stranger,teacher, policeman,elder, family elders.

Simply say,“Namasthe, ji!“with folded hands. It simply means “I salute you”. Kind of like a handshake on being greeted, in other parts of the world.

Examples:

Namasthe doctor saahab

namasthe shrimathi ji

namasthe shriman Arun

namasthe Modi ji

namasthe pradhaan manthri ji where pradhaan manthri is prime minister.
