HELLO everyone lately I have been bad at blogging , Don’t have much to write about these days and am trying my best to get back into the groove. Trying to catch up with all the old blogger friends and hoping against hope that they remember me too :). So Hello to all you out there who still remember me and those who have forgotten well Good job, you are not missing anything 🙂

I have no idea how many times over the last few years I have tried to get back or said HELLO again and again but then the reason for that is, I don’t like to say good-bye , I hate it , prefer saying See you, because who know where when one gets to meet again.

I love saying HELLO🙂 .

Why the word HELLO was invented, all those years back who thought or made the word HELLO, Why is HELLO the word that signifies a HELLO.

I have a theory, yes I know those who know me will say here we go again, I always have something to say 🙂 I think that the word hello was invented for this one only moment..

to start a conversation.. It was invented because when Mr. Bell invented the phone there was a need for everyone to pick the phone when it rang and say something..

What would be that FIRST word that one will say, there was nothing else to say .. so HELLO was invented, so people knew what to say instead of AHOY 🙂 OR YO.. or something else.

Here is something that I have noticed, maybe others have noticed too people have this habit, especially old people, they will say HELLO and then repeat the number ..

you ring

They say “Hello — 0203546363”..

You are thinking “YES I KNOW” .. I dialled that number .. You don’t open your door and say HELLO and repeat the house address.. it’s the same principle ..

or Sometimes they will ask “What number have you dialled “.. Well here is a theory if your phone is ringing and you have picked the phone, it is not ROCKET SCIENCE as to what number the other person has DIALLED. is there .. it is YOURS .. the same number of the phone that you have just picked and said “HELLO”

SO then all you lovely people what do you say when the phone rings and you pick it up..

tringg tringgg .. pick up your phone …


On a complete tangent here is something to think off.. WHICH person thought or gave the idea of having the Emergency number as 999.. Imagine in the good old days when they had the phone where you had to pull the numbers all the way. To dial 999 it would have taken the Longest time.. 🙂 instead of 111…

Here is another thought , I was in Scotland a few months back and found this myself

Did you know Scotland has its own money.. I mean they have same currency Pounds but they have the their own money, They have same notes but designed differently, Maybe They don’t want to deal in with English money

BUT here is a thought if you are listening the Business news .. imagine the funny part where they are telling the exchange rate 🙂 Today the 1st September 2015 the exchange rate is…

one Pound to the POUND 🙂

ok ok BAD JOKE I know .. but as I said getting there slowly 🙂 I am sure you can bear with this one …

How are you ALL DOING ….

  2. Hello 🙂 I didn’t know Scotland has their own-designed money! Why doesn’t UK just switch over to Euro?

    Hello Bikram! Good to see you back! How have you been?


  12. Found In Folsom says:

    Hehehe…we haven’t forgotten you 🙂 One story I heard is Mr. Bell’s GF’s last name was Hello and that’s how he came up with that…the other is, it was his assistant in the next room and he called out that name….etc…etc.. 😀


  13. Roger Green says:

    Hello, and welcome back. I think your guesstimation about the derivation of the word Hello.

    A hello back! If I would do my posts like you do, I probably couldn’t keep up with my blog. I do it once a week, about 5 pics and a little text – that’s it:) a happy week to you!


  17. dNambiar says:

    Hello there (I just picked up your call :D)

  18. padmaja says:

    Hello Bikram, one can not forget your past posts even if you are not blogging regularly now, look forward to you posting once on a while at least 🙂


  19. Hildred says:

    A cheery hello sets the tone of the conversation – usually….


  20. I do say Hello and Hi. It reminds me of a pal in college who’d ask how I am doing, I say fine. He would joke and say, Everybody says I’m fine. Nice post:)


  21. Anita Menon says:

    So lovely to see your post. It’s chirpy and vibrant as always!


  22. Jyoti Mishra says:

    Hey, Bikram
    Hope you are doing well.
    I am too failing at blogging. 1 post in a month or two. Just keeping it alive :p

    Hope to get my groove as well :l
    Till then we’ll repeat Hellos 🙂


  23. Here’s a hello from a new friend…
    And on the Scot currency, I think its just their way of trying to show their individual identity! Been in the UK for many years and totally used to love the gags on Mock The Week 🙂


    • Bikramjit says:

      Hello right back to you .. Thank you so much for visiting me .. please please do keep visiting … yeah you are right on that , that is what it is. and you watch mock the week excellent , that is Brilliant.. I love the SHOW.


  24. indrani says:

    Hi! What a way to bounce back! Wonderful post!


  25. wordcoiner says:

    Hello from me too! Simba 😀


  26. Greenboochi says:

    Hello Bik 🙂 🙂 Always good to see you come back! Now come up with more posts 🙂


  27. Beat About The Book says:

    I guess that bit about repeating the number after the Hello comes from years of handling wrong-numbers. I used to have an uncle who would pick up the phone and say ‘bolo’ – kind of threw us off balance each time. Good to have you back Bikram.


  28. Hello, hello! Yes – you were missed and I am glad you are now back! 🙂


  29. Ashwini says:

    Hello Hello 🙂

    How have you been? It’s been some time since we saw you here.

    Yes, I remember repeating the number to ensure that we have actually dialed the right number. Old practices 🙂

    Take care and do keep writing more. Waiting to read more theories of yours 🙂


  30. lesliebc says:

    Hello back to you! So happy you have come back. I actually laughed out loud when I read your joke about the pound!

    So glad to see you blogging again 🙂


  36. gc1963 says:

    Interesting observations….I really wonder whether this word “Hello” existed before the invention of telephone or did Mr. Graham himself coin the word? That’s a point to do R&D over….thanks Bikram for this amusing as well as thought provoking post


  37. Trish says:
