In Chhattisgarh, PM Modi touches the feet of 104-yr-old woman who sold her goats to build toilets - Times of India
- URRUBHAT(C'garh): PM Narendra Modi on Sunday touched the feet of a 104-year-old woman from a village in Chhattisgarh's Dhamtari district who sold her goats to build two toilets at her home.
"For those questioning why he touched her feet, in India and Hindu culture it's a sign of respect. You're showing humility and asking for the person's blessings. You normally touch the feet of a parent, grandparent, elder or guru before you undertake any major event, like a job interview or an exam. Some even do it daily for no reason other than to show their respect."
