No other sound worse

What is the worst sound u ever heard?

I think it is that of a small baby crying.

I had an exam today morning, I could study yesterday evening with the dandiya and dj music playing 3 floors down…but today morning in the train, there was this baby crying. I just couldn’t concentrate. The cry just makes u drop everything else and want to do something about it. Somehow it just takes priority over everything else that you are doing.

This has happened before… we were ending our session at the ngo with our daily prayer. We volunteers make it a point to participate in full tandem and not get distracted… and guess what… there was this small kid wailing sitting on a chair all by itself. I didn’t know what to do, I simply left hands and went over and couldn’t make eye contact for the remaining of the evening with anyone feeling sheepish at the behaviour.
