Equilibrium

Sometimes one participates in family gatherings dominated by old people, where half of them are deaf and the other half absent-minded. One belongs to the latter. With so many old people, it makes it hard for one to remember who is deaf and who isn't. One talks loudly to people who aren't deaf. People who are deaf are left irritated by all the low-talk. In the ensuing commotion, the room gravitates to to an equilibrium where all the people end up talking loudly. There is no difference between teenagers talking to each other in a rock concert and old people talking to each other in a devasam. Rendering all the music irrelevant.
