Our characters would probably not come into contact with each other untill we had met earlier. So in this encounter in a public space the male protagonist recognises the female one and approaches to greet her. The female protagonist is offended by him touching her feet to take her blessings as she does not consider herself that old. She is an overpowering character and thus displays her dismay at being recognised as a younger lady. The male protagonist always ends up being a victim in situations due to his submissive behaviour and here too his good intentions turn on him and he is opressed verbally and leaves dejected.
