One of my all time fav. 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 this forum 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. 


 I agee with you .even in school days, to my close friends I never use 'tu'= 'Nee' in malayalam.".   I use that only to my younger brothers, and our kids. To strangers only Aap= Thangal (in malayalam )and  very rarely 'tum= Ningal'.  But when I get angry  also I use Thangal= Aap to the other person.Angry.

To me interact with a person in good mood is tum, in which equal repect between both parties.

From where a person hailing from  is very much important, if constant interaction is necessary between the two persons. Otherwise, if it is a casual meeting ,no need of it, becuase today even between collegues no deep rooted friendship.

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 

 Regional influences plus family/khandani mannerisms plus education (academic or otherwise) contribute a lot to how one interacts with others.  One can see world of difference in how Rakhi Sawant and Kashmira carried themselves on BB vs Shilpa Shetty on BB. there was a lot of Tu's with RS and KS on Big Boss.
