Ace cricketer and current BJP MP had to touch the feel of small children!! Yes... But why did he have to touch the feet of children? What wrong did he do that he had to touch the feet? Yes. We are talking of this pic that is setting the social media on fire. Gautam Gambhir touching the feet of two girls.

But, wait... before you jump guns, here is the reason. The Punjabis have an annual ritual on Vijaya Dashami, where the parents have to wash the feet and then take the blessings from their girl child. This is known as Ashtami Kanjak and Gauty was performing this ritual. Gautam Gambhir himself tweeted a pic of this ritual. He tweeted addressing his wife Natasha: As a dad of two young girls, I am gradually mastering my pedicure skills...besides seeking blessings on Ashtami Kanjak!!! @natashagambhir2 where should I send the bill for my services?  So, that's the secret of Gambhir touching the feet of his daughters.

Gambhir, who had quit from all forms of cricket in 2018, has later joined politics. He contested and won as a BJP MP from the East Delhi constituency in the national capital.

Needless to say, Gambhir's tweet and the photograph went viral and the netizens showered praises at the gesture of the cricketer-turned politician.
