Touch your elder's feet when you meet em....!!!

My examination start in less than a week.

Today I had to collect my roll number from college. Yesterday, I had gone to college for the same purpose, but I could only get the clearance and had to go again today. It so happened that Delhi woke up to a lovely Saturday morning which had oads of rain and amazing weather in store. Thanks to the down pour mom, dad, Arushi n I went to collect my roll number. Towards my college there are numerous malls and ma n pa were wanting to see those. So after giving them the tour of the mall and having lunch in the food court, as we were leaving... I bumped into a very good friend of mine from college. He too was just coming from college after collecting his roll number. He saw me with my parents- and right in the middle of the mall when I was introducing them... he bent down and touched their feet...saying namaste to them. Though the incident was a lil embarrassing at that time.... but now that I think about it... it was rather cute. He btw is a junior in college and absolutely an adoirable person.... and that action of his made me remember incidents that changed my life almost three years back... weird na... how lil things provoke memories of the past....???

Hmm...u suddenly made me remember an incident tht'd happened in my life. It was back in 12th standard, I was in the same complex where Arpa used to live, then. It was jst by chance tht I met her n her mom on the roads. I did knw her mom evn back in the 7th std days. Well, I jst went up to them, said a hi to arpa n bent, rite in da middle of the road, n touched her feet. i remember her getting happy n arpa, embarassed :-P. Neways, next time wen i again met her, some 4 years hence,I didn't repeat the gesture, 'coz i ws forbidden to, by arpa. Apparently, she hd been sermoned a lot abt "bong guy's respect towards elders"...hehehe!

Well... I was taken aback... but then I guess it ws ok...reminded me of Aniruddh, whenever he met my parents he always used to touch their feet... touche...that was the effect that came in at that time...but Rishabh...that was sure a surprise....
