Dean’s expression after Indian student touched his feet has gone viralMay 22, 2017 13:09
Indians are praised around the world for their culture and ‘sanskars.’ They show a deep respect for elders and always seek for their blessings by a simple gesture by touching their feet.
While the western countries are not well aware of this gesture, but what can Indians do about it. As they never hesitate to show their respect towards their elders and gurus. And people in western countries always go dumbstruck by this moment.
An Indian student, who graduated from Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, out of sheer respect bowed down and touched his Dean’s feet after collecting his degree. This quite common in India, but the dean’s expression, who was shaking hands one second and the next, the student was touching his feet went over his head and the Dean’s expression is totally priceless.

“This is something that children in Indian families are taught from the beginning and are supposed to follow till adulthood. The primary motive behind this gesture is to bow and show respect to their elder. The person whose feet are being touched, blesses you with long life, fortune and wisdom, as an acknowledgment.”
But, when the expression is so classic, how can our beloved Twitterartis can miss the chance to add some humorous ‘tadka’ to it.
