Dear Ashish,

Yes, eyes tell a lot about a person and so do the blinks of the eyes. In many real life situations we try to read a person by reading his/her eyes. In a classroom teachers make use of this art. If a student does not have an answer to a question, there may not be an eye contact at all. Further, the confidence of the student may be read in the blinking. When there is an expression of anger the blinking may completely be absent for some time. Among friends blinking may also be accompanied by movements of eye balls while doing a mischief or say teasing a person. While showing surprise sometimes we make frequent blinking. At times when there is some eye problem there may be blinking specially with sudden change of brightness.

The beauty is that we learn all this by experience and even put it into practice even unknowingly. But I appreciate your sharing it with the members of ISC.
