No points for those of you that think that I am referring to the much-laughed and much publicised popular joke about the sound emitted by a freely falling body [read human being] being directly proportional to the height of fall.
Oh okay, I shall substantiate. Here's the joke for the uninitiated.
Case 1. person falling from the twelfth floor of a high-rise.
curtailed by a resounding *DHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUP*
[Note that *Dhup* is a very Bengali sound equivalent to the English *crashing sound*]
Case 2. Person falling from the first floor of any building.
But none of these cases complement the sound image I have drawn at the beginning of my post.
Let's divide the problem into three parts.
a)-That's my neighbour's obstinately rambunctious daughter shouting out in glee for God-forsaken reasons.
b)That's a resounding slap on her back imparted by one of her parents, I know not which.[ Thank God they sometimes feel disturbed and react savagely! Pity we can't react thus to them inspite of being disturbed always and unceasingly. Love thy neighbours indeed!!]
c)That's the child bawling.
Reason enough for another headache!!
On the same note: Some Paresh Rawal quotes are unutterably accurate for such moments as these!

Winter rain is more welcome, I think, unlike summer rain which comes only to exculpate so many...winter rain is more personal, whimsical, without a reason, more me.
