Impact of An Obscene Call
Last year , when I was at my in law’s place I have experienced something which I cannot remove from my memory . We stay in a close-nit joint family there where there are people of different age groups . I have one very litle nephew who is very close to me .
During mid-day my aunt has called me saying that someone who is introducing himself as my brother is waiting for me at the land-line . I was surprised because everyone knows my mobile number at home . So wooryingly I went to attend the call , my nephew accomanied me to talk with mama ….
When I picked up the receiver someone with a very sweet child-like voice tried to confirm whether the person on the line was me or not . He told me that he is like my younger brother . But I appologised for not being able to recognise him .He than started talking in obscene language . I asked for pardoning me for not understanding anything ( because of the dichotomy of a childlike voice ) , and actually not being able to understand his words . I asked whether he actually want to talk with me or not . But poor thing I was I was actually letting him enough time till I could understand what he was saying actually .I was at a loss what to tell him . It took time for finding out cursings to him . And I was so sad uttering those words in front of my nephew that I started weeping .Neither hHe could not understand anything nor I could tell anything to others . The phone did not have a caller ID .
Throughout all the day I could not look at the eyes of the litle boy . When my husband called me miles away from a distant city I could not talk to him .
But till the evening I have got a good news . The boy who was making calls allegedly from a different city to some more married ladies was doing this from a public booth , one smart lady kept him engaged with some sweet talks and got him arrested at the very day . He was a boy who lives nearby and targetted some married women for his purvert pleasure .
This has finally soothed the impact of the obscene call in me and I thanked the lady . I have heard about such calls , and heard that some people do this just for pleasure . But they cannot imagine its affect on the mind of people . These stalkers are simply a different specy who lack the senstivity of human being .
