hi

the most prevalent greeting

of what is now called 'the west'

'hi'

pronounced 'haai'

is the same as a

hindi/urdu term 'हाय '

which means 'a call in/of distress'

makes sense

considering

that this is an actual reflection of their state

things have a way of giving themselves away

even if it is not intended that way


or are they trying to say

that the person they are addressing is

hi(gh)

or higher than them

if that is the case

their body language doesn't suggest

any such intent
