body language

One of the most confusing things about India is the body language. If you’re talking to someone in India and they’re just passively agreeing with you, they shake their head from side to side, almost as if they’re disagreeing. If they really agree emphatically, then they shake their head as if they are really disagreeing.

Things also fall apart when you shake your head to say no, because to an Indian, you look like you’re agreeing.

Very tricky.
