For the Indian community, visitations are better made on appropriate days. For example, visits on Hindu New Years, or to houses of those who have just moved in. Visits on Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday will be forbidden as those are not considered good.
Indians practice various types of greetings, commonest way being to put both palms together and lifting them up to the chest. While this is done, the words are greets such as “Vanakkam” (Tamil), “Namaste” (Hindi) and “Sastrigal” (Sikh). In addition it would also be accompanied by questions on health, family, work, business and such matters.
