The head bob

The head bob is a ubiquitous and often mysterious Indian gesture. I have heard it can have many meanings including:

-Yes

-No

-I don’t know

-Okay – I hear you. Keep going.

-You’re pissing me off, but I’m not ready to fight with you quite yet

-I’m not so sure about that

-That was kind of funny, but not funny enough to actually laugh

Below is a dramatization of events. This is an actor and not a real life situation.
