Many people are confused about the meaning of Indian “headshakes” and how to communicate using them. That may explain why a satirical video [1] deciphering different types of Indian headshakes has gone viral.

The 1:44 minute-long video, titled “Indian headshakes, what do they mean? [2]“, has attracted more than 1.2 million views since it was published in YouTube on February 16, 2014. And it has generated interesting reactions on social media platforms such as Reddit [3] and Twitter:

Paul Mathew, the video's writer and director, told the BBC [6]: “If we had known that this video was going to get such awesome viewership we would have shot it better.”
