Touching people, in any way, is not very Asian. The reticence of politeness is taught early and is part of Asian culture. It has advantages.

Respect for the other person, for their independence and for their body is an important part of life. Religion sometimes plays a part in the ritual and then a mixture of symbolism and practicality combine to keep people apart.

There is also a down side to the isolation this practice brings. A baby is initially heavily dependent on its mother and is then weaned to become more independent to begin to learn to care for itself. But the child that is not cuddled by parents grows up uncommunicative and cold. In a world of social creatures this puts a child at a serious disadvantage.
