Various customs and traditions observe different ways of exchanging pleasantries. One of the salient is the greeting when departing to another destination. It is bye bye, goodbye.
Taking that into respectful consideration, there are some other practices where there is no bye bye or goodbye expressed; all that is mentioned is phir milenge (translation – we’ll meet again)
Indeed, carrying on further ahead with one’s indomitable conviction and will power with+in the hope that one will meet another soon again, God willing; its an distinct manner, where as if pausing till meeting again, no matter how long the gap in between the one meeting to another, its the belief, its the faith, its the conviction, its the determination as well as the fervent cherished hope of each individual to truly meet the other in goodwill and wellness of happiness consistently.
Take it in any language, it is meaning one and the same; the cordiality and warmth; the friendly pledge to meet one another in goodwill and by the grace of God. It is not changing any cultural norms; etiquette; protocol or conventionalities; but rather respectfully looking further ahead and intending to meet one another several times again across the years and decades gloriously and committedly with all efforts focused upon sustaining the visions that belong to the goodwill, harmony and welfare of the Universe consistently; so it is phir milenge, milenge phir, we’ll meet again,, God bless.
