      • We still do the same…turn everyone into a relative. Anyone older is auntie or uncle, men of same age group are bhai or brother (such as my hubby’s friends or cousins), women slightly older are baji or (older sister).

        We also tend to add “ji” or “sahib” to names of older acquaintances such as baba ji, master ji or XYZ sahib. Normally people do not take just names but when I joined online and called everyone Mr. Trulove, Mr. Bessey, Mr. Welford etc. I was told that’s not how it’s done ๐Ÿ™‚
