LOL !!! Best advice, I believe
After my wedding, we had this last Satya Narayan Puja. When it was over, our panditji asked me to touch DH's feet, which I did. After that he said in a very serious tone, "This is the last time you are touching his feet. You must not do it ever again." And I was saved. God bless him. I sometimes feel like bribing him to say the same thing for touching MIL's feet. :rotfl
In our community...everyone touches the feet of elders irrespective of gender.But it is only when you meet after a while and when you leave home for a longer duration.No one is expected to touch feet everyday.I haven't seen anyone literally touch the feet...it is usually a dip with hands touching the leg .
I have an idea for OP. Instead of touching her MIL's feet, she may try giving tightest/warmest of the hug to the MIL.
I also touch my MIL feet every day. But today having my periods and she said that I don't like any ones touch during their periods. So I did not touch her feet today. Lets c it she allows me to apply oil on her leg which i do daily at night before sleeping then i will touch from tomorrow other wise Will be touching on next Sunday.
Anjali ...you touch her feet and rub oil on her leg daily?thinkingsmiley
I have a feeling we will see you often in the "this happens only at in law's house" thread.
Yellomango Yes I daily touch her feet and every night before sleep I apply oil to hers legs and hands. Its routine work.
Her hands broken? she cannot apply with her own hands?
Its like daily ritual I have to do .... what so ever my condition is... today itself his bua came so i have to apply oil on her leg before she goes means near to 3pm . She says to hubby and everyone from the day she has arrived YET without fail she had daily applied oil on my legs. The day when I reached my in laws house during night hrs I applied oil to His Grandma , Aunts, Bua's , Mother and then went to sleep.... And our side when u apply oil and we do na pair dabana at tht time u r not supposed to stop till they say to stop... keep doing and wait for them to say BAS.... and when u apply oil on Legs u have to apply on hands and even at the back its mandatory.
Become bold and say no or grow sharp nails.
A few scratches later, they will say bas bas bas beta.
