You just CANNOT miss what happened at the 2017 IIT Chicago Commencement Ceremony. You know how it’s said that you can take an Indian out of India, but you certainly CANNOT take India out of an Indian, no matter where he goes. And a similar thing happened at this graduation ceremony in Chicago.
An Indian student Gaurav Jhaveri, who is a student of Illinois Institute of Technology, was being handed over the graduation certificate at a foreign university, and as a respect to his American Dean, he touched his feet. While it might appear very normal for us, it came as a shocked for the Dean. As soon as Gaurav touched his feet and moved on, the puzzled look on Dean’s face was priceless.
A Twitter user shared this video, and it has gone viral since.
Indians will be Indians…. 😂😂😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/YVR94DzW2l

Needless to say, the Dean’s funny reaction attracted a lot of reactions, and Twitter had fun of their own. While some of them praised Gaurav’s ‘sanskaari’ gesture, others just had fun.

@Trollacharya It's sweet actually. Unlike pseudo NRIs, he didn't shy away from being a desi

Wow an Indian graduate did not forget his roots of touching our teachers feet as their mentors our Gurus taught by parents https://t.co/vU5UyfscRj
