Taking off the headphones

I spend a lot of time listening to music — from Decemberists to Blackalicious to James Blunt to Dispatch. I have noise-blocking headphones, so I can usually tune out the din of Delhi, and in particular, the city’s carsmotorcyclestrucksscooters whose drivers honk incessantly.

But every now and then, something breaks my reverie. Usually, I’m annoyed at the loud offender. Not so, yesterday at Lodi Gardens, when I was pleasantly interrupted by a chorus of birds at dusk chattering in a bamboo grove.

    That’s what “tweeting” used to mean.

    Very hilarious…was in my office (off of my living room) playing your audio of the birds in the bamboo grove while our cat, Lily, was sleeping away on the back of the sofa. As soon as she heard the birds, she came running in my office, thinking that the window was open and that she could “prowl” on the windowsill for real birds. Thanks for the laugh, Adam.
