    What is Namaste

    The Oxford dictionary defines the term Namaste as “a respectful greeting said when giving a namaskar”. It acknowledges the word’s ties to Hindi as well as to the mother of all languages, ‘Sanskrit’, which also happens to have given roots to words in common English usage such as ‘karma’ and ‘nirvana’. I guess, this means that it is safe to say that the popularity of this term, ‘Namaste’ which has south-east Asian origins isn’t groundbreaking. Indians, particularly, use both ‘ Namaste ’ and ‘Namaskar’ as almost universally applicable greetings. You could say that it is the western equivalent of a friendly handshake, but this traditional greeting needs to be supplemented with a long line of tradition and history associated with it.

    Oh yeah?

    Well "Howdy" was first recorded as a verbal greeting in England in 1563 (according to the Oxford English Dictionary).
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I think think this may have been spam-aste before the mods deleted the links.

    Namaste is lingo misappropriated and utilized by insufferable trendies and hipsters to signal to each-other that they share the delusion that they are spiritually transcendent and philosophically superior to those who don't deploy such indicators of brainless superficial cosmopolitanism. The rot runs deep in urban coastal regions but thankfully it hasn't metastasized into Wyoming... yet...

    If a metal detector can't detect, it isn't worth anything. My philosophy anymore. I know, I'm a stick in the mud...
