The Indian head shake

The Indian head shake was something I noticed during my first conversation with a local. For some reason I had always thought that the gentle side-to-side head movement during conversation only happened in Bollywood and not as part of everyday life over here. And yet everyone does it to varying degrees over here. It can take a little getting used to when you ask a question expecting a ‘yes’ answer but the answer comes with a head shake. It’s caught me out a few times!
