ABC Wednesday - 'G' for 'Gestures' - Kala Ghoda Arts festival 2015 #8 : The Semantics of Gestures



From holding an infant in your arms, to games that bond; from fun and dance to a moment of solace found in holding someone's hand - gestures have always been an important way of sharing love and life. Trust, love, sympathy, empathy, anger, fear and a myriad of emotions can be seen, felt and communicated through gestures and touch.
There are many instances of negative touch in today's society, but positive gestures hold the potential to enhance bonding at every level. It truly has its own language - one that we are incomplete without.

  3. Some interesting gestures there, the moulded hands look as if they've been moulded in paper mache`.
    Mumbai certainly looks a colourful city too !
    Where would we be without hand gestures , we wouldn't be able to direct traffic, applaud a great performance,
    give the thumbs up gesture, do a high five, and so on,
    An interesting post, thank you for sharing your Mumbai daily Life with us,
    Best wishes,
    Di.
