Many thanks in advance.    Best regards,    Georges-Jean Pinaut (Paris, EPHE)

Dear all,
This announcement reminds me of an expression in the Sarvadarśanasaṃgraha that I have difficulty understanding. On p. 418 of Abhyankar's edition (line 16.298) it mentions "showing a cloth with the imprint of the son's foot" (putrapadāṅkitapaṭapradarśanavat) in the context of announcing the birth of a son. Does this refer to a known custom in India?
