Recognize when you’re being complimented
In India, there are a lot of different cultures and traditions at play, that it’s hard to understand completely what’s taboo to one, and not to another. One thing that is common, however, is the way most communicate: through body language.
Something you may see is someone approaching you with their tongue between their teeth, while waving the air that’s around you onto themselves. This is just them complimenting you on your beauty.
