New Delhi, May 31 : As people in India and globally are gearing up to embrace the new normal, rising cricket star Shafali Verma has taken to social media to encourage followers to use Indian greetings like Salaam/Namaste to ensure social distancing and yet maintain connections responsibly.
With hugs and handshakes being a thing of the past due to COVID-19, the question on everyone’s mind is - how do we greet friends and family when we meet them? So, traditional and contactless greetings like Salaam/Namaste have never been more relevant now. Rising cricket star and youth icon Shafali Verma recently took to Instagram to encourage followers to use contactless Indian greetings like Salaam/Namaste to ensure social distancing and yet maintain connections responsibly.
In her instagram post, which she shared on Saturday, Shafali can be seen grooving to the tunes of a catchy jingle, in which she tells people ''handshake ko zara tum change karo, thoda distance maintain karo, salaam namaste haste haste saare bolo''. The video is an extension of Pepsi’s recently launched digital forward campaign which aims to make contactless Indian greetings a part of popular culture.
