All you need to beat the H1N1 virus is to be Indian ó don't shake hands, greet others with folded hands, says Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij.
The minister has a solution for non-Hindus too: "The person folding hands might not say namaste if they feel it is a Hindu greeting. Instead, one can fold hands and say Wahe Guru or Salaam."
AdvertisementNow before you dismiss this as just another joke, look where Vij said this ó in the State Assembly on Monday. And look who endorsed the statement by raising his hand in support ó Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
"Leave English culture, adopt Indianness, instead of shaking hands, greet each other with folded hands," said Anil Vij.
