Guest (tourist) is treated like God in Rural India

I am from a rural Indian village and I was taught by my parents: "Matru Devobhava, Pitru Devobhava, Acharya Devobhava, Atidhi Devobhava" which means "Regard the mother as God, the father as God, the preceptor as God and the guest as God". This is followed even now in rural villages. Recently Washinton Post carried an article about Rural India tourist visit. Editor writes: Here, in India's heartland, they really do treat guests like gods. Even sick ones.

On a different note, I wrote about 20-30 foreigners tourist visit experiences in India.
