It is Namaste


A smile and a nod
with a “namaste”,
typical of Indians
causes a banter
among those who
shake hands.

That be the style
of India, which does
not entertain physical touch
rests content with gestures
gentle and gracious-
folding the hands.

The age old ethics
goes on to the generations t
who are westernised
hold on to the traditions
with a steadfastness-
habits die hard.
