20th Jan 2014, Morning

I saw myself in the first row of the audience of some news show where Obama and Modi were the guests. Unexpectedly, I heard Modi read my full name, "Abhishek Sainani", from a piece of paper. He invited me over. I looked around and smiled like an idiot, then walked up to them, clueless. Then I did what I thought was the only apt thing to do, touched Modi's feet. Before I could touch Obama's feet, Modi asked me, "Why do we touch feet of our elders?"
I was taken aback, such a question at such a forum!
He then pointed towards Obama, indicating I should give him the answer. So I told him, "Sir when we bend down to touch feet, more blood enters our head and this makes us more intelligent."
