The noise that was not unusual but memorableI heard a bang on the wall inside the room in the morning. It increased in due course and I realised that one was using a drilling machine on the wall on the other side. It's very natural to have a common wall when you stay in a flat and when flat owners are repairing their rooms others get to hear a lot of noises. Along with this noise, a picture flashed in my mind. The picture of a man sitting on his bed with his morning cup of tea.
This was described by my friend some time ago when he used to stay in a rented room for his work in a neighbouring state. On a holiday, he decided to carry out some carpentry work in his room though I was not aware of his expertise in carpentry till then. At first, he used the drilling machine to make two holes on the wall and miserably failed. Then he took out the hammer and a sharp chisel-type tool that he arranged from someone to make the holes. He placed the pointed sharp tool on the wall and stroke the hammer on it. After a few more strikes, with a reasonably loud noise, a big chunk of a portion of the wall fell on the other side, that is on the other room separated by the wall, where a man was sitting on his bed with a cup of tea. The description of the man in that position, when the portion of the wall was damaged, was so precisely given by my friend that his face came in my mind when I heard the loud noise from the other side of the wall in the morning.
