English is the best language......in this case.....
YOU with respect
YOU with disrespect..
YOU with Love
YOU with hatred.....same word ..for several situations...
In Andhra Pradesh...people from Andhra side others as Meeru (AAP) and people from telangana call Nuvvu(Tu)....so some of the Andhra People feel that telangana people are not that respectful...however that's a Myth!Respect is not in the way we address the people..but the attitude we show...However I donot like addressing people tum unnecessarily and I donot like strangers addressing me tu....as if they  know me from centuries...but however....this is not an issue

Well does it really matter? Can you make assumptions / mind set on person's individuality/personality based on which region/part/county/country he/she hails from?

Example - No offense please, like Delhites use "APP" addressing people, not necessarily they respect you but its out of habit, on the contrary a Bombaite will say "Tu" not necessarily he/she disrespects you. More examples follow based on responsesSmile 

Another burning(LOL) question - Why people are biased based on region/country etc.?

 

 

I think this is due to a belief that people from your own region are likely to be more intelligent, friendly, helpful than those from the other....

I dont thinkn people understand link bet' language and respect.. even on the forum if you call anybody with a suffix ji... they immeidiatly say I am not an aunty....so please dont put a ji.....language has its own of conveying respect which english totally lacks....and actions have their own.. You can address a person as aap and then slap him repeatedly...though thats ridiculous...

but it more sound like " Aaap ki badmashion ke ye naye andaaz hain .. aap ki aankhon main kuch mahke hoye say khwab hain"WinkLOLLOL

Agree with Qwerts .. english is lacking when it come to convey emotions through words with respect to the subject .I love our desi languages ..most because with a single word we can ..not only describe our relation to the person but respect and emotions too ...Smile

One of my all timefav. songs.


I even address youngsters as 'Aap' if they are strangers. I only use 'tum' when I feel closer to them like good friends and relatives. I use 'Tu'for tapori languageLOL act like on thisforum with Raunaqwa and Munnabhai (Bunbutt).



LOL LOL LOL in reality i never use tu, one or two of my classmates in school used tu and it sounded so weird, we always use tum and aap for strangers but never tu, sometimes when people call tu in the first meeting, i find it very weird Ouch Ouch Ouch but in tapori sub chalta hai Wink for me aap is a very respected word and i only use it for certain people and i mean it when i use it for some people or strangers. tum is very informal and can be used for almost everyone.
