58. Depends, who the parrot is?

Parrots talk because they don't want humans to learn their language. Parrots talk because there is no other way they can communicate with humans. Parrots talk to get noticed in the house for getting their primary needs fulfilled. And, who doesn't like parrots talking!

Trouble begins when humans start talking like parrots. A sweet `hello' follows a listless unpunctuated narrative about a loan or an insurance policy. Irritating from the word go, you have little option but to hang up. But like a phoenix rising from the ashes, these parrots repeat themselves quickly. Because there is no dearth of youngsters wanting to become parrots, with their parents ever eager to be supportive. They are stupid but parrots aren't because they know when not to talk!

A friend queries: what if you could see who is tweeting from the other end?

True it is a pity that a large number of sub-human humans today find becoming a parrot a good carreer option and often they get paid as well. So they say why not?

Besides money they find company of parrots of all sexes at the call centera and parents don't callthem 'Donkey' or 'Gadha' or 'Pig' etc. So we find them there on our cell phones.

One of my friends devised a novel way. He says 'ek parrot dusre parrot ko avoid karta hai'. So when he gets a call from a parrot, "we are offering loan"; he says 'ok give me'. They say what should be the EMI? He says 'zero'. And that parrot does not disturb him again or may be they tell others, "one parrot should respect another parrot!"
