What is it with loudspeakers at most public celebrations in India?
We had one near where I live yesterday–loud music, the bass was thumping, so you could hear the stuff through the walls. The ground near my place is small, yet multiple speakers were used, big ones too, the kind that you see in small-scale rock concerts.
In addition, PA speakers were tied to the electricity poles to provide surround sound. It was an explosion of noise from about 9 in the morning till 9 at night. When I went to the neighbourhood grocery store in the night, I had to yell to the guy in the store to be heard–it was that loud. Like, I said, rock concert-ish.
There’s a police station less than a hundred yards from the ground. The ground is in a primarily residential area. How did they get permission? Did they get permission?
I’m okay with celebrations, but I am not okay with causing inconvenience to hundreds of people for an extended period. Even then, why does it have to be so loud that even closing doors and windows makes it impossible to cut out the sound?
IT’S THE EQUIVALENT OF ME TYPING IN UPPERCASE ALL THE TIME.
Irritating isn’t it?
