Q.

How many of you use "Respected Sir" as opening in official letters like to application in government offices or to your boss ?
Some people do not like "dear sir" becuase they interpret it as real endearment then why they "respect" people who do not deserve any kind of respect ?

Tags: people, relationships, sir

Govt. babus generally like "Respected Sir", but I always used "Dear Sir".

In both the cases itz only a protocal of addressing nothing carry any literal meaning as for as I am concerned.

What matters is content below Dear or Respected Sir / Madam

Respected Sir = Used as salutation to teachers/Mentors;
Sir = To Boss, Senior Officials in Public sectors, including Govt.
Dear Sir = Salutation used on Equals. (Dear does not constitute to endearment, in this context))
