Background: Recently the Bell-Bajao Campaign has really picked up on TV. What with actor Boman Irani being its brand ambassador. Seeing it, I came across a very strange incident related to Bell Bajao which I could not help but blog. Some noises were coming from a house, so a curious stranger (being over-impressed with the Bell Bajao campaign), presses the bell. We will call the curious stranger as the ‘Good Samaritan aka GS and the person inside as ‘Ordinary citizen’ or OC.
Ting Tong, Ting Tong, Ting Tong.
OC opens the door when the bell rings and finds a stranger.
GS: I heard some noise from inside.
OC: So? Rang the bell?
GS: Yeah, have you not seen the Bell Bajao campaign asking you to knock anyone’s door if you hear noises.
OC: Oh that one, but what has that got to do with me?
GS: No, I thought, just in case…..
OC: Just in case, what Mr. Stranger. Without knowing anyone you just knock the door??
GS: No, but some noises…..
And our hero, the ‘Good Samaritan’ tries to take a peek inside. The ‘Ordinary Citizen’ gets angry now.
OC: Oh hello, Mr. First of all I stay with my son. There’s no lady here. I am watching TV, OK?
GS: Oh, I am so sorry. Actually yesterday my wife was hitting me, I thought someone will ring the bell, none did. Anyways I am sorry.
