Why Do We Touch The Feet Of Our Elders in Indian culture?

A scientific reason behind, Touching the feet of elders as a mark of respect is an age old practice in Indian tradition. Often this practice is looked upon with derision by some people as feet are generally considered unclean and such people argue that there could be other better ways of conveying the respect. However, there are a number of reasons behind the practice of touching the elders’ feet that indicate how wonderfully beneficial and meaningful this practice is.

The act of padasparshan (touching the feet) has a profound scientific reason. The nerves in the human body, starting from our brain, spread all over our body and end at our fingertips and toes. While doing padasparshan, when the fingertips of your hand are joined to the feet of the opposite person, a closed circuit is established between the two immediately and the energies of your bodies are connected – your fingers and hands become the receptor of that energy, while the feet of the elder person become the giver of the energy. When the elder accepts this respect, their heart becomes filled with good thoughts and positive energy, which they give out through their hands and feet.

Feet are for the body as the foundations are for buildings. The entire weight of a person is borne by the feet when he stands and moves about. Except birds and some rare cases of mammals, humans are endowed with the gift of being able to walk erect in two feet. When we bend down and touch the feet of our elders, our ego is also automatically subdued and we indicate that we respect their age, wisdom, achievements and experience. Being pleased of our humility, they in turn bless us.

How a Air break in Heavy vehicles works
Air storage tanks are filled with compressed air by the compressor, which is powered by the engine. When the driver steps on the brake pedal, or treadle valve, this allows air from the storage tanks to flow into the cylinder, pushing the piston down the cylinder. This is the service portion of the system

It’s called the “Zone of Silence.” This Mexican version of the Bermuda Triangle has its fair share of alien rumors. But the disruption is believed to be caused by subterranean deposits of magnetite, as well as debris from meteorites.

Skipping breakfast is more likely to cause weight gain rather than weight loss.

it makes no difference whether people eat or skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast makes you eat more at lunch, but not enough to compensate for the breakfast you skipped.

However, it’s important to mention that intermittent fasting and/or skipping breakfast does not suit everyone. Some people may experience positive effects, while others may develop headaches, drops in blood sugar, faintness and lack of concentration.

But Intermittent fasting can have numerous health benefits. Most people following intermittent fasting skip one meal a day (mostly dinner)
