For most people, the first contact with love is through a kiss. Parents usually hold their newborn and kiss them.
Later, we learn to kiss mommy
and daddy goodnight.
And in our youth, one of the most memorable moments is our first kiss.
The earliest reference to kissing-like behavior comes from the Vedas, Sanskrit scriptures that informed Hinduism, Buddhism and the Jain religion, around 3500 years ago.
Around half a century later, affectionate mouth-to-mouth kissing was first described in the Hindu epic, the "Mahabharata".
