India is the land of chappals. not even a strap in the back: easy on easy off. Homes, shops, temples - footwear stays at the door.
Traditionally it seems Indian were a barefeet nation. The Hindi word Jutti (shoes) rings like jute (hemp textile, rough canvas) that probably points to the material of ancient sandals. Was it the non-violence (Ahimsa) that left cows wearing their own skin rather than padding human soles?
These days, in villages and even elder villagers in rural town markets walk the streets on their weathered bare soles.
