Send out a cheerful, positive greeting, and most of the time you will get back a cheerful, positive greeting. It's also true that if you send out a negative greeting, you will, in most cases, get back a negative greeting.

Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you, namaste literally means “I bow to you." As-sal?mu ?alaykum is a greeting in Arabic that means "Peace be upon you". Hello according to Cambridge dictionary is used when meeting someone.

The most basic ethics we learn as a child and something very basic we teach our kids is to greet the elders or in general greet when we meet or depart. Methods vary from religion to culture to countries, but the objective remains the same. Whether we say Namaste, Salam or Hello, the objective of the greeter is to infer that they are pleased with the presence of the receiver and welcome their companionship. Many a time greeting with a smile and positive gesture guarantees the fruitful outcome of the meetings.

Greeting itself a habit developed since childhood. When practiced well makes it look effortless, but can also look forced when done only to obligate the moral duties. Greetings are the first point of time where your first impression is made. A kid cheerfully greeting the guests, teachers, and acquaintances show how well-mannered they are and make their parents and family proud.

When kids greet elders, and impromptu response from the heart is a blessing. We not only greet to welcome and say goodbyes but also when we need these blessings. In cultures around the globe, we take blessings when are about to start something new, while going in wars or exams. When we have achieved our goals or take progressive steps in life.  These blessings, in turn, boost our morale and confidence.

A habit of greeting not only portrays a child as a well learned and decent kid but also prepares them to present well in the corporate world. This is a must soft skill which can indisputably refine your ones’ impression. People feel valued when they are greeted well and mark it as a positive commencement for their upcoming conversation, meeting or deals. When a child greets he or she displays that they are happy about the meeting and are willing to receive the blessings. As a cultured society, we need to make sure no kid is deprived of its benefits.
