Afghan Queen and Atatürk's Gesture

Towards the middle of the feast, we started playing. After a couple of works, ATA, King and Queen came to us. Turns out the queen was stealing the law. The canon of our delegation listened with admiration to the law that Vedat played skillfully, and while he was expressing his appreciation, the skirt of the toilet he was holding because it was too long slipped from his hand and gathered a large pile of silk on the ground. The King must have not tolerated this situation, as he gently touched the Queen's foot with the tip of his boot. Meanwhile, ATATÜRK graciously bent down and took the Queen's skirt that had fallen to the ground and gave it to them. At that time, I can't forget the meaning of the way the Queen looked at the ATA on the one hand and the King on the other.
