What would you like to replace?

One thing that I would like to replace is a pedicure machine that I recently purchased from Amazon because as soon as I opened the box of the machine I found that the outer lid has a hole, so the water would cool at a faster rate.

When did you get it?

I ordered it last Saturday and it got delivered in two days, however, the dissatisfying experience that I am having with this purchase, spoiled my mood. 

Why do you want to replace it?

Not just that the water will cool down quickly, but I also want to get this replaced because I just do not want to adjust to something that is broken and does not give me a good look. I think I get superstitious when I think of using any item that is broken, somehow, it is my mindset that broken things kept at home attract a lot of negativity and do not give you a good aura.

How easy or difficult it is to replace it?

It’s quite easy to replace it from Amazon, as the delivery agent shall come home to pick up the old one and also get the replaced one. I just need to follow a few steps of requests that I make on the Amazons mobile application, post which the delivery partner shall follow the steps. This easy flow of steps attracts me to buy things online and be tension-free.

Who/what made noise ?

Noise pollution in today’s time is a reality that we all have to deal with on an everyday basis. With increasing traffic and rapid urbanization, noise from vehicles, construction sites and industries is breaking all permitted decibel levels.

What more it has now started to affect the social arena as well with loud music being played in pubs, restaurants and even in weddings.

What the noise was like ?

Last week I and my colleagues had gone out for an after-work dinner at a popular restaurant. However, we were unaware that it was a special DJ night. We entered the restaurant at about 7pm. At that point the ambience was quiet and soothing. We ordered our drinks and starters and kept chatting among ourselves. We hoped to enjoy a quiet relaxed evening with good food and drinks.

However, at about 8, the DJ started playing. The first numbers played were not too loud, but within an hour the blaring music was ear-splitting. It was impossible to hear each other over the deafening noise.

What you did ?

We had to shout our dinner order to the waiter. We had to use gestures in order to communicate with each other as conversation was no longer possible.

Soon people hit the dance floor and the DJ increased the volume further. At this point, things had become oppressive and we left the restaurant cancelling our dessert order.

And explain how you felt about it ?

The evening was supposed to be a quiet and relaxed one. We were hoping to spend some quality time after a tiring workday, but that was not to be. We had to scramble out of the restaurant. By the time I left the restaurant, I was having a dizzying headache and just wanted to dash out of that place.

Who/what made the noise.

Anything that is noisy is always disturbing and destroys the mind set of an individual, However, I recently heard something that was really noisy but at the same time it was really melodious and soothing to my mind. The moment I recall that noise, its like music to my ears as I can still feel the melody.

What the noise was like

The noise was of a chirping bird outside my balcony, the beautiful blue coloured sparrow like bird sitting on huge tree and singing loud. At first, I could not understand from where I was actually able to hear something strange, new but so relaxing. After checking my gadgets I just moved to my balcony area and got this as a surprise. 

What you did

I just sat there and started observing the bird, just in time, I released that the bird was actually calling his fellow mates for some meeting and probably they all wanted to enjoy. Listening to that sort of call to action, I completely forgot all that was going on in my mind and just sat there for a long time keenly noting all that the bird party was doing.

And explain how you felt about it.

Carefully watching them conversing with each other and enjoying their own world, made me realize how beautiful life is any form that we could exist. It looked like the birds were portraying their feelings and they had a gala get together sharing and caring for each other. I just rejuvenated myself from the tiring day I had in my work place. I wish the birds keep coming to my balcony and give a pleasant treat every time I go there.
