An ethereal competition indeed!

Last night I woke up…to experience the biggest competition . The Barking competition of dogs.

Others who have experienced it will certainly agree with me that it is the most enjoyable experience. It has the capacity to keep you awake for hours together without resorting to energy boosters like coffee 🍵.

Just by listening carefully you can apprehend which side is winning… And which side is losing.

And you get to enjoy the various different operas sung by the very talented dogs. Some of them just bark whereas some will show the full range of their opera skills.

And if the night is really quiet then you can identify the locations of each team of dogs. Sometimes the mawali type of dogs are joined by their middle class siblings.

Then the street operas get their echo from the surrounding buildings. Sometimes such barking competitions degenerate into biting matches.

Then the barks are accompanied by screeches and screams. When you hear such haunting melodies you certainly won’t feel l like sleeping in a jiffy.

You see your loved ones sleeping peacefully. They sleep peacefully since they are unaware what heavenly music they are missing.

And when these barking competitions finally stop, maybe due to tiredness of the competitors, you are also assured of a good morning sleep.

Hard luck that others are just waking up to face the daily human competitions, whether in office or on the playground. After all if the dogs don’t interfere in our competitions then why should we!
