Volleyball during winter : Noises & Problems
Outdoor playing is a good way to build your body and have fun. In the parks of Kolkata, I have seen that youths (and even middle aged people), enjoy playing Volleyball & badminton. The main purpose is to keep yourself warm and have fun together.
When such outdoor games should be played on?
There is no fixed time. But you can’t play such games by embarrassing other people at night.
Near my home, there is a park and a club associated with it named as “Nandanik” (previously called “Amra Sabai”). For the past ten years, I have seen that club’s youths believe in one simple principle : if we are having fun, we’ll force you also to have fun. That means, if the club members are partying hard or having a football match, they’ll use loud speaker(s) such that everybody in the locality can mandatorily hear. I guess, they don’t understand the individual freedom of happiness & celebration.
The situation becomes worse when winter comes. In winters, they play volleyballs. Now everyday, when I return home at night, I expect a peaceful and silent environment. But thanks to this club members of Dakshindari Road, who don’t care about or respect individual mental peace. They start their play of volleyball at around 10.00 pm and continue it till 11.30 pm. Then after playing, the local youths (not necessarily the club members) use slang words and their unnecessary talks in a loud voice till 12 midnight by standing just beneath our building basement. The discussing time increases in summer. I would like to know, if anybody, whose house is near any city’s club, experiences the same problem or not.
These barbaric youths don’t understand one thing that their loud screams during play at night is a cause of deep mental agony & frustration for us. If any cops / activist of Lake Town, Dakshin Dari area or any North 24-Pngs based police can request such youths to show their “athletic abilities” in the day time, then at least I shall be really grateful to the person.
