National Respect Day 2023: National Respect Day encourages us to be more respectful to everyone and to assist others in doing the same on September 18 each year. This year, our celebration coincides with National Cheeseburger Day, World Bamboo Day, and even International Red Panda Day.

National Respect Day 2023: HISTORY

The dictionary defines’respect’ as a sensation of admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or accomplishments. We were undoubtedly taught respect from a young age. We were instructed to respect our parents, elders, teachers, school regulations, traffic rules, country, etc. As adults, we have come to understand the significance of this respect, and we may even instruct those who lack such emotions for others. Self-respect is another form of respect that we have progressively learned about. We learn about it, cultivate it, and labor up despite the odds.

Respect and self-respect are so appealing to ancient and contemporary philosophers, especially moral and political philosophers, because of their importance. Respect and self-respect have been mentioned in discussions pertaining to justice and equality, cultural diversity and tolerance, punishment, and political violence. The theory of respect is also at the center of numerous ethical debates, with some holding that it is the essence of morality and others using it as the basis for other moral philosophies.

This emphasis is largely attributable to the German philosopher Immanuel Kant, the first Western philosopher to place reverence for individuals at the center of moral theory. He insisted that individuals are ends in and of themselves, possessing absolute dignity that must always be respected. This is now a central tenet of contemporary humanism and political liberalism. Even today, the majority of contemporary discussions about respect reference, rely on, or contest Kant’s theories.

The bilateral greeting

In the Middle East, the right hand grasps the other person’s palm, while the left hand grasps the forearm near the elbow.

The left hand is forbidden.

In North and sub-Saharan African countries, as well as the Middle East, it is considered impure to deliver someone an object with the left hand.

Touching the feet of others

Asian culture dictates that the older generation must be greeted prior to the younger generation, and in India, people touch the feet of the elderly as a sign of reverence.

Keep an eye out for the ‘rock-on’ indication

In many Mediterranean and Latin countries, such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Spain, Italy, and Portugal, the universal rock-on sign — horn fingers — is used to convey that a partner is deceiving.

Observe your digits

If you assumed the ‘thumbs-up’ sign was harmless, you were mistaken; it is used as an insult in Bangladesh and is considered offensive in certain Middle Eastern countries.


Consider our treatment of others.

This day compels everyone to reflect more deeply on how we treat the people in our lives and to make necessary adjustments.

Respect is an essential value to inculcate.

Respect for others and for oneself are the cornerstones of a thriving social structure. National Respect Day reminds us that we must instill this philosophy every day, not just once a year.

We require a reminder.

The universe is filled with difficult situations. Therefore, it is crucial that we take time to consider the things and people that we find most commendable.
