Re: India culture???


I'm straight up American and I hate being hugged. My kids all think/thought it was hilarious, right up until they got old enough that I started returning fire with punch's. The youngest's GF who's staying with us (because her parents are ****) is a big hugger so I'm spending a lot of my time lately hissing in response to her constant "hug-a-ma?" She seems to think I'll warm up to her and change my mind or something - someday she'll realize where her boyfriend got his stubborn ******* streak.

My husband is a bit smarter about it, he offers up a warning plea before getting too close

Re: India culture???


Canadians in general are pretty friendly and polite and always apologizing to each other.

Bump someone at the store and we start apologizing. Not a lot of road rage either. However we are not huggers per se. Maybe some groups or cultures do that privately but we don't do that a lot.

Hows it going Eh??

Don't go to the South!

Church people hug a lot. Baptist, HS boys did a lot.

"I can't recall any culture where people just hug strangers, sounds like the guy's a bit off his rocker. I must concur with @Nik333 's admonitions to be careful, though don't be paranoid."

Re: India culture???


In my culture for my 2c's (born in UK, living in Canada, parents from Sri Lanka - Sri lanka consisting of Indian migrants -tamil- Sinhalese -natives- anglo-setlers)

here you go

* If I go to a family member house, I would hug , maybe kiss any female, aunties etc, hug also for close family, IF the person is Tamil, they don't HUG anyone outside of familly, only handshake

* I would NEVER hug anyone off the street, handshake yes

* We GENERALLY call older folks aunty or uncle, (In this country and UK, I would call an older person that if they where indian/asian) a non-indian, I would not designate that, as it is generally not needed or understood, and I don;'t use the term maam or sir, (unless it is a g/friends parents then it is mr or mrs xyz)

* My Daughter now 8, when where out, I may say to her, "go say thankyou to that uncle" or "Give the money to that aunty" now that is more usually if they are obvious immigrants like ourselves and sometimes Caucasian Canadians as well... Never had a come back, I think they see I am teaching my kid to RESPECT her elders

* At familly parties or dances, I ALWAYS call anyone who may appear older than me unc/ aunty , same as my daughter

* I would call an older , like a senior, pops, or sir possibly

but hugging and kissing, in this context. no, I know alot of NA/s dont like physical contact

Well , not unless she's hot and wearing a bikini !
