The lady disconnected the phone. I dialled the number again(. TISA join करने के बाद मै बड़ा बेशर्म हो गया हूं ! I dont give up easily.)This time I said hehelo.. Mmmam , Pra….shant से बात क क रनी है .She said Prashant is not in office. Then I told her the issue being faced in our telephone exchange.I stammered ans still i was able to communicate the issue to her. She told she would check and call back. She called after sometime and gave me a landline phone number of ambala. I called there , a person picked up the phone. I told him, Hello, “Shishishimmla se bol raha hun”. Then i told him the issue.He told he would call back.He called back and the problem was finally resolved. I was happy.
So I observed that while making a phone call to a stranger, there can be two situations.
First, there may be total blockage, with some faint sound. Here the other person may feel something is wrong with the signal, and (s)he would disconnect after sometime.
Second , when we are able to say the starting few words with stammering.
Here I feel we need not convey to the person that we stammer. He would already know by then.
So if the person is patient , he would listen. If he is of impatient type , he would disconnect the call.
