So you can praise someone and wink at them when they turn their back. Sometimes a friend may talk about something seriously but if he winks at you, it means he is joking. Similarly, winking is used to control interaction to indicate that something is not to be taken seriously or to show a friendly attitude towards the other. A wink may seem to be simply an eye movement, but it is also a facial expression.
Since the head usually moves slightly to one side while winking, it is a head movement. However, when you wink surreptitiously there will be no head movement. In fact, the presence or absence of head movement can be a crucial factor in the beholder interpreting the ificance of a wink. Winking accompanied by a short, sharp downward tilt of the head to one side is a useful gesture.
It can mean that a statement is not to be taken seriously. While studying in a co-educational school, I winked at a girl who was my first love. She winked back. It was a great day for me and I recorded it in my diary. In those halcyon days, schoolgirls used to wink at boys and vice versa. However, in the new millennium I hardly see girls or boys winking at each other. Instead, they send short messages to express their feelings electronically. When we winked at girls, the class teacher frowned. But I distinctly remember a jovial young teacher who loved winking girls and boys.
He also winked at good-looking girls surreptitiously. I have failed to find anyone winking today because they are glued to their mobile phones.

How would you react to someone who dares to blow you a kiss with the drop of a lid? Would you dare to wink back? The father of a friend of mine was a great winker. He had two winks. One was for his wife, which was a romantic invitation.
You cannot just wink at someone; you have to do it with panache. I asked a year-old man whether he had received any winks. It is tragic that people have stopped winking at others for some unknown reason. Then I asked a woman in her eighties whether she still winks. Today there are better ways of attracting the attention of others.
Winking at strangers is somewhat risky. Some famous people wink just to make headlines in newspapers. President George W. Bush did it famously to Queen Elizabeth in Psychologists consider the wink as ambiguous behaviour. This is because a wink can be friendly, conspiratorial, flirtatious, lecherous or sinister. Robert Provine, Psychology Professor at the University of Maryland and the author of Curious Behavior: Yawning, Laughing, Hiccupping, and Beyonddescribes winking as a distortion of natural behaviour.
