Nope, not a greeting, just the opposite. Hijra persons, and people doing gherao, protesting, calling for bandh and all use this phrase to let their hatred and disappointment be known.

In a different tone it can also be a term of endearment.

Usage

Hijra - haye haye! haye haye! (clapping their hands in a weird way)
You - No, no no no please! no no no please let me go! I'm not TataBirla, i'm not loaded, I don't have a swiss account or any black money. I slog my ass of for a living so please you should also go find a job or start up some brilliant crowd sourced website so you get free content and can make some money off it!

Definition

The popular Indian spelling for the universal greeting, "Hi", possibly because the word "hai" is used as a prefix while addressing the gods (as in "Hai Ram"). Although you may not perceive the difference during a conversation, a written exchange will give it away.

Usage

Local fellow: Hai ya, how are you?
Thames: Hi there..(Pause) You said the word a bit differently, can you please write it down.
Local fellow (writes): Hai
Thames: Right, right.. Ok, I will go and come.
