Anonymous Calls..

Tring Tring...

Phone Ringing. Ringing. Ringing.

You are coming shouting "I'm coming one minute."  Before you Picked up; it's disconnected. Hell.. and when you got back to what you were doing; it's again.. 

--------------------------------------------------
Tring Tring.. 

Picked up, disconnected. Damn ..

and then the caller put it on repeat.

I wish we can have the facility to trace the number who's calling us.





Tring Tring

Picked up..

Hello, Hello, Hello

-Awkward Silence-

Disconnect.

--------------------------------------------------

Tring Tring
Picked up..
Hello, Hello, Hello
-Awkward Silence and few coughs added-
Disconnect.

--------------------------------------------------
Tring Tring
Picked up..
Hello, Hello, Hello
-Awkward Silence, few coughs and a short laughter added-
Disconnect.
I wish we can see the face who's calling us.


Now you are thinking that there are CLI and Video calling available and I was the victim. But the twist in story here is, it's sometime back in 90s when CLI wasn't common and video calling was supposed to be the biggest miracle if it could ever happen. and the other twist is the person who's victim wasn't me, and I know it all 'cause I was "The Caller". And I wasn't doing it alone, I'd a gang with me, my 10 years old sister, my 9 years old sister, my 5 years old brother and a 11 years old me. 

We had a free phone for national/international calls at that time and we four evil minds were in devil appearances, used to dial some relatives, sometime randoms and either we gave them missed calls or some awkward silence blank calls. That was so much fun when we turned the loudspeaker on and we four kids couldn't control laughing on people's reactions. 
We had the option to speak when we were calling to some unknown person, but when we called some of our relative, it was double fun but we were restricted to keep us quite 'cause there was no voice changer at that time. 

On calling unknown person, we used to tell them that they won a gift from "Knor Chicken Cubes" and were offering people some gold eggs, if they answered us right or sometimes we were from the team of drama "Ashiyana" and asked people to sing the title song for us. and when the victim was some known person, we giggled and laughed over their stupid guesses and lame threats. The best thing when the target was set as some relative that they always called dad and asked him to help them in tracing the anonymous caller 'cause he was in ptcl.

All that seems to be so funny and childish when I recall it today when I have CLI and Video calling and when we crossed our limits and became intolerable, finally ptcl introduced CLI and all victims applied for the paid version of CLI and the anonymous caller get the report and quit and ended Anonymous Calls, the silly laughters and the amazing gold eggs offers. The biggest secret is, it's not revealed to anyone yet after 12/13 years.
