Re: Ji?

Namrita Ji,
Ji is acknowledging and welcoming your presence thus in Indian culture is a sign that the person respects you.

Ji is sometimes used as "yes" and that is acknowledging and welcoming the request or question.

Re: Ji?

Ji is used to show gesture of respect in India. This is used in many languages in here.
You can use it after name or any other salutation.
example : Sir ji , bhai ji , mummy ji , papa ji , uncle ji :D
