sidewalk welcome (India)

Hospitality is making your guests feel welcome and comfortable. And in return, a good guest will not impose too much on the host and will return the kindness with gratitude or gifts. The gifts may be physical or perhaps helpfulness, like baby sitting, taking the hosts out for entertainment, or providing entertainment -- bring a good joke or story to dinner.


“The good guest is almost invisible, enjoying him or herself, communing with fellow guests, and, most of all, enjoying the generous hospitality of the hosts”
-- Emily Post


a pineapple is one symbol of hospitality
