I was living in a hostel during that time, and the day before I met her parents, I told a hostel mate about the impending meeting. He advised me to touch her parents’ feet when I met them. He couldn’t have been more right! When I met them the next day, I immediately bent down and touched their feet, and they appreciated the gesture. For them, it meant that I could integrate myself into an Indian family.
