The eyes and feet of the Lord are compared to lotus flower that all. You know the lotus leaves floar on water but not a drop of water stcks i it. Same way God when ever He comes down to earth for the goodness of mankind, He does behave like ordinary human but this worldly pains and pleasure never affect Him in any way. More over, the lotus will have slight pinkish colour in its petals so also the eyes of the Lord at both the ends which shows a healthy personaity.We also touch the feet of all our elders when we meet them after a long period.

Lotus scientifically known as Nelumbo Nucifera is the National Flower of India. It is a sacred flower and occupies a unique position in the art and mythology of ancient India and has been an auspicious symbol of Indian culture since time immemorial. The Lotus symbolises divinity, fertility, wealth, knowledge and not to forget enlightenment. Lending to its uniqueness, the flower grows in murky waters and rises on a long stalk above the surface to bloom glorious. It is also a symbol of triumph, since the lotus is rooted in the mud and can survive to regerminate for thousands of years. It represents long life, honor, and good fortune. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolises the purity of heart and mind.

PLEASE READ EACH & AND EVERY WORD TO UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH....
The Hindus, worship the Heroes, Heroins, Sub-Heroes, Sub-Heroins, (Genetical Part "Linga", animal headed, multiple handed men, women) and animals of Unbelievable Imagined Stories. But they are Jinns, which are created by the Only One God Allah (Who Created you, me and whole universe). He Says in Holy Quran
Chapter 51 Verse 56. And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).
4:171. ....so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not: "Three (trinity)!" Cease! (it is) better for you....
6:100. Yet, they join the jinns as partners in worship with Allah, though He has created them (the jinns),...
34:41. ...You, [O Allah ], are our benefactor not them. Rather, they used to worship the jinn;
72 :6. ...who sought refuge in men from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden.(Hindus say: Vishnu is the preserver).
16:73. And they worship others besides Allah, such as do not and cannot own any provision for them from the heavens or the earth.
19:42. When he (A[Braham-a]) said to his father: "O my father! Why do you worship that which hears not, sees not and cannot avail you in anything?
29:17. "You worship besides Allah only idols, and you only invent falsehood. Verily, those whom you worship besides Allah have no power to give you provision, so seek your provision from Allah (Alone), and worship Him (Alone), and be grateful to Him. To Him (Alone) you will be brought back.
4:117. They (all those who worship others than Allah) invoke nothing but female deities besides Him (Allah), and they invoke nothing but Shaitan (Satan), a persistent rebel!
37:91Then he turned to their gods and said, "Do you not eat (of the offering before you)?
95. He said: "Worship you that which you (yourselves) carve?
12:39. ...are separate lords better or Allah , the One, the Prevailing?
13:16. Say, "Who is Lord of the heavens and earth?" Say, " Allah ....
16:51. ... "Do not take for yourselves two (or many) deities. He is but one God, so fear only Me."
