SMOKE SIGNS

June 28, 2010
At 9.15 pm, an old ailing lady was startled awake from a fitful sleep by it, a boy studying for his class test was disturbed by it. The CFO of a leading MNC who was scouring the Economic & Business sections of the newspaper was irritated by it. An infant started howling after having been rudely awakened by it. It made the ladies who were engrossed in the serials to look up momentarily from the television sets.
It was a motor cycle horn. It had a different sound. It was shrill and sounded like a clarion. I have been hearing this everyday for the past 10 days at precisely the same time. Is it a signal to his love that he is on his way? I wonder.

    🙂 Reminds me of a time long long back when I used to hear someone making a sharp sort of signal (with mouth). I wondered what was happening, sure that some clandestine meeting was being arranged. I happened to mention it to the L & M and he started laughing. It seemed our neighbor in the apartment above gave that signal as his scooter entered the compound so that his wife could have the door of the house open.
