I walk down a street… a crowded, busy street, on this little capital island, where almost everyone knows each other. I came across a couple of friends whom I’ve not met in ages. They greet me in exciting shrieks.

Girl 1: ‘hey girl, u have gained so much weight’

Girl 2: ‘nah, I think it’s the baggy shirt she’s wearing that makes her look FATTER than she really is’.

Imagine friends that I haven’t met in ages greet me with such a ‘warm’ greeting that actually made my blood boil, my face red and my heart to skip a beat. I replied ‘lovely to have bumped into u too’! Maybe I was rude, but do you think they were polite themselves?

This is a tradition among us to greet someone, anyone you meet with a judgment about their looks. The most common judgment passed is ‘o you’ve gained so much’ or ‘you have lost so much weight’. Sometimes I wonder when this ritual would change. I wonder when, people would actually ever learn to greet people with a wonderful, pleasant greeting. They could always say ‘hi’, ‘hello’, ‘good morning/afternoon/evening’ or ‘assalaam alikum’ don’t you think so?

Let’s be careful the next time we greet someone. Instead of depressing the person you meet, just make them feel good & happy to have met you!
