India: Hand Shaking

In our lives, we don't pay much attention to things like which hand we greet someone with, or with which hand we give someone money or even food.

But in India, greeting a person must be done with the right hand only, because the left hand is considered impure. 

This is due to the fact that the left hand is used for personal hygiene.

So be careful if you ever go to India and greet someone with your left hand; they will find it quite unpleasant and disgusting.

Veils (Islamic and Arab)

Despite differences with western fashion, the clothes worn by Muslims and Arabs are complex and full of meaning. This religion does not allow its believers to show some parts of the body and, therefore, the clothes cannot be transparent or delineate the body. There are different types of clothes used on different occasions.

The most famous is the hijab. Hijab means "covering" or "clothing that covers" and for this reason Muslims speak of "respecting the hijab" to refer to the law of covering the body of women. The basic idea is to cover the hair, but also the female body. Muslims in  
the region of India, Pakistan and Afghanistan use the word purdah (which means curtain) to refer to the same concept. In other words, the hijab is not a type of scarf or cap, but a norm that is later adapted to different forms, according to the geographical origin of the population, the religious belief or the cultural environment of the person who wears it.
