Some British businessmen to promote their business, held a debate whether they should embrace all their female customers or shake hands with them. After a serious discussion, they decided in favor of the handshake.
Handshaking is the normal method of greeting when two men meet in various situations. Two women had recourse to the cheeks touching it with their mouths. But if a man and a woman to adopt this practice? What is wrong with that you can ask. This mode also provides the much desired physical contact and warmth, it is not? True, but it is a danger in it. A mischievous young maiden can skillfully use his lips and planted a trademark lip-stick on playing the poorer without his knowledge.
He would have come to know that he was carrying the red oval that when his wife notices and demands an explanation later in the evening when he returns home after work. It is up to you to imagine how he explained it away and what the reaction would be wifey etc. .. Certainly, there would be some fire works. This is the price a man must pay for lending her playing a female stranger very freely.
Therefore, the method of the handshake seems to be relatively safe. That’s what you think. Not so, my friend?
Everyone is not the habit of washing hands before and after a meal. I know that many Westerners do, all because they use the covered dining table. During eating, they can touch a piece of bread or a salad or some such element of the foot with their fingers dirty in the market may be eating food contaminated themselves. It’s OK. But then they can pass on some seeds, millions of real number, to another person and shaking his hand.
If you shake hands with a dozen odd people for a day, you can not just send your stock virus to others, but also receive the same amount of other guys. Only after days you would know that you inherited an infection because of the liberal hand-shakes.
If, for reasons of business, you feel that physical contact is a must, why not use hugs as he did in the Gulf countries? A hearty hug, to be exact. This could involve both sexes equally. Here too there is a danger. If you’ve been carrying some harmful bacteria in your coat and tie, like lice, these fellows can also pass from one person to another in a jiffy if the embrace lasts for a few seconds.
All this being said, you would naturally ask if there is no other safe method to have a person and yet not contract any disease? This is where the Indian model one more point. We’ve been wanting a known or an unknown person with palms pressed Standing at a safe distance. No physical contact whatsoever. And whatever germ of stock you may have been carting around your body stays in your body and not get transferred.
But alas! In recent years Indians too have been shaking hands with Westerners and Indians as well. They opt for the type of palms pressed with an Indian lady. Wrong. Why not stick to our old custom regardless of the sex of the person? Even more, we need to universalize this method for adoption by all countries. Our scientists have counsel after explaining the benefits embedded in it.
The next for consideration, which is harmless, is the Japanese model to bow religiously to another, keeping a reasonable distance between the two. There is no key body in this model either. Males and females were able to follow the technology. Alas again! When they encounter a non-Japanese, they switch to the variety of the handshake. What a pity!
Your company will continue to flourish if you adopt the Indian style of condescension or Japanese client. But please, please, do not pass on your epidemic transmitted to another person through any body rub!
The safe method of greeting someone, be it a man or woman, is one that does not include any kind of touch body. This method will ensure that you do not infect another person in any manner. In any other form of greeting, there is a danger of transferring some germs on your body to another.
