    Alii in Palauan language is not welcome but it means hello. Please take a note of this and do not misguide.

    In Marathi, Welcome means ‘Aaple swaagat ahe’. Plain ‘Ya ya’, which means come, also is used for welcome. Krupaya aatuya is not right.it shud be Krupaya aat ya, it means Please come in. Namaskar saheb means hello Mister.
