“Good morning, Sir” – is a greeting you probably wouldn’t expect to hear around the office in the 21st century, but in some Indian workplaces, this is still the norm.

Samar Singh has been on both sides of this situation and explains how you can play to cultural expectations of respect for your elders without losing your authority.
