India’s way of greeting other people is getting worldwide acceptability as coronavirus is pulling back people from shaking hands. From American President Donald Trump to French President Emmanuel Macron to British Royalty Prince Charles, everyone seems to be enjoying the new way of greeting.
This comes amidst doctors’ precautions that ask people to reduce physical contact with others in the vicinity to keep themselves safe from catching the virus. So that now, physical contacts are a big no-no, Namaste is being looked upon as a clean way to meet and greet.
Recently, US President Donald Trump while meeting with the Ireland Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in the Oval Office at the White House on Thursday, opted to greet the latter with a namaste. He boasted about how he has followed the habit of his recent visit to India where he attended a Namaste Trump rally.
