Hands & The Man

Amod called. He is a childhood friend for me. For others, he is a story writer Amod Dev Bhattarai.  Thanks to the ‘superb call quality of the phone call, I could make out some of the words he said,“Brazesh…hissssss…editor……mute…..New Yorker magazine….silence….get together..hissss….Bhoomi, Lazimapt….noise..Tues….silence….2nd……hissss….Sept……five..hisssss…..thirty….silence.” 
And, then the line disconnected. Cool enough, rest was for me to put two and two together. After all if you can understand what is being said, the purpose of the communication is achieved. People blame our telecom service providers for nothing. It’s a miracle in itself that a person  from almost 17 km away was able to convey his message to me.
