When Pranab rubs nose with a tribal chief..


India or Africa, tribal traditions are certainly amusing.. President Pranab Mukherjee, who is on a foreign tour now had to face a piquant situation when he was asked to rub his nose with that of a tribal chief.
It was a traditional welcome after his arrival in New Zealand today on the second and final leg of a two-nation tour. After his arrival in Auckland from Papua New Guinea, he started his official engagements with a traditional Maori welcome in the afternoon.
“Maori warriors initially greet visitor with aggression not knowing whether he is friend or foe,” the Rashtrapati Bhavan tweeted.
They then placed a fern in front of Mr Mukherjee and asked him to pick it up if he arrived in friendship. On being convinced that he has arrived in friendship, they asked him to follow them.
Maori men and women then sang and danced welcoming the president as a friend.
The ceremony concluded with the traditional rubbing of noses in friendship between President Mukherjee and the Maori chief.
