The other day I attended a music concert which was part of the music festival organized by one of the music enthusiasts. I noticed his usual smile of welcome though was very much present appeared slightly different as if to say he thought it was foolish on my part to have missed the music concerts held on the previous days. I responded with a very ‘apologetic’ smile and then explained the reason for not being present earlier. Then it suddenly occurred to me, rather reminded me of the different ways people smile when they meet you which reflects what goes in their mind,( read about you). Doing RESEARCH on the topic SMILE is really worthwhile I thought and started REFLECTING on the various ways my friends, acquaintances and my spouse smile on different occasions.
The first instance I remembered was when I gatecrashed into my friend’s house only to be met with the most unwelcome smile which was a camouflage for a chuckle. She was on the verge of stepping out. Then again, when I landed at one of our acquaintance’s place during their meal time. Needless to say, I was ‘received’ with the most sarcastic smile. The third instance was when I returned from shopping carting two heavy bags and my dear husband ‘feigning ‘a smile of welcome !
