Culture misunderstood

My client, a French lady visited our office. She was assigned a work place/cubicle next to my colleague Deepak. When he was about to rise from his chair he accidentally touched her leg with his feet. According to Indian culture, we tell sorry by touching them with fingers and those fingers back to eyes. He did the same. The French lady complained to the manager,"the guy who sits beside me first touched me with his leg, later on he took a step ahead and touched me with his fingers". :-o :-)
