the most prevalent greeting

of what is now called 'the west'


pronounced 'haai'

is the same as a

hindi/urdu term 'हाय '

which means 'a call in/of distress'

makes sense


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


or higher than them

if that is the case

their body language doesn't suggest

any such intent
