Before next wink, refer a WinkipediaPriya Warrier is definitely not the first to wink. But still, she has made the gesture of wink a bit more popular and celebrity matter in a short time at least among the Malayalam movie goers or Malayalees across the world. From them it has spread and become viral all over. No doubt she has made wink beautiful too. The youth and the young in mind have liked that.
Just like the osculatory gesture called kissing, winking is an ocular exercise having its own significance. Like the saying 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder', the meaning of the wink is a harmony of thoughts between the sender and receiver. Though there is a 'French Kiss' no equivalent is there for wink, probably because it is already a Wi-fi or wireless attribute inherent in it.
As wink is only a half blink the word wink would have originated by the merging of two words 'Wifi 'and 'Blink' becoming Wink. Thus it suits the current wi-fi generation and Priya Warrier has become its brand ambassador. So it turns out to be a Winky Warrier( wink!).
As wink has myriads of meanings depending on the rhythm and resonance between the sender and receiver, I think we may need a Winkipedia or Winkcyclopaedia to understand thoroughly about wink.
I close this post with a meaningful wink, which you know to take correctly (wink again!)
