Sometimes I feel that I am too engrossed with the word ‘Namaste’. I was just going through my comments in someone’s blog and suddenly felt that my comments are more formal and clipped with the word ‘Namaste’. I don’t remember as what happened and why I started to attach this word with my comments.
If I have to say the start of my journey with this word, I remember when I was very young, my parents told me that whenever some guests would come, you should always greet them saying, ‘Namaste’. Till at this age, I am greeting all my relatives and some unknown guests in my home with this word. But here, after coming to banglore I rarely heard this word. Rather, now the scenario has changed like if I hear this word I feel little awkward. May be my thought for that person will be that he/she is a clumsy fellow. And I rarely use this word in my conversation. When I am in comic, witty, funny and humrous mood, I love to greet with Namaste!
Recently, I noticed that some people around me have also started to staple this word when they converse with me. It so happened, one day one of my team mate pinged me to ask something and he started the converstaion with the word, ‘Namaste’. I remember my blog when I hear this word. I grew little bit suspicious if he was knowing about my blog. And now when my mom calls me, she also greets me with loud Namaste. And our conversation starts with belly laugh. Some of my friends in office have also started saying Namaste to me. I don’t know why all this is happening. Are they looking towards me as full Sansakari Indian Girl!
Are people around me changing or Am I changing?
