In some cases, I have observed that the person deliberately uses the third hand to ensure that the recipient of the handshake does not leave quickly. That is, if it is just one hand, it is easy to let go of the grasp and excuse oneself, but when somebody is practically clutching your hand with both of her/his hands, it is tough to escape!
When you make a commitment, you create hope. When you keep a commitment you create trust! ~ John C. Maxwell
As mentioned by the author we not still gone to the original practice of shaking hands with others. Still, we are not completely out of the Corona problem. We should not forget the importance of following certain norms. Joining both the hands and saying Namaste should be continued for some more time, I feel.
