When was the last time you heard a TRING TRING.....
Tring...Tring....old fashioned bulky telephone's ring tone. No...just like your unique hair style, attire, your style, ring tones are unique and defines your personality. Now its as unique as your signature and expresses your personality.
Well, why not? Isn't your cell phone indispensable and intricate part of our life, which actually shows who you are. Are you a geek? A choooo-chweet girlie girlie kind? A moron? Whatever, it freaks you out, brings a smile on your your face, makes you hide your face under your pillow....however they are inseparable...the notes of high and lows...music...The Ring tones and the caller tones.
My observations again, heard a wide range of ring tones, few feeble and soft, few jarring and loud, few sing-a-song manner, few animal cries and few abuses. :-)
Few species that stand out. First things first. I cant wait myself.
The GIRLE tones
Awwww.....chooooooo chweeet....chhhhoooooo cute, sweetie pie kinda tones. Babies laughing, or a 'I am a little tea pot....short and stout' rhyme. Girls find it awesome, excuse me but its AWW-SOME. Would anyone ask them to PLEASE GROW UP!!!
The all-time BHAKTI/Spiritual tones
Few folks would always be surrounded by GOD, hymns, singing in his praise. You call one such phone and it goes
Om Jaye Jagdish Hare, Swami Jaye Jagdish Hare
Bhagt Jano Ke Sankat, Khshan Mein Dur Kare ...
Boy!! And what happens? You forgot the purpose of your call and dive into spirituality and start singing HIS praise along.
The PETA tones
These are the tones an avid animal lover has as his ring tone. Dog barking, donkey braying, cock crowing are the most famous ones. Either you like animals or that you consider you as one among the species your ring tone has :-P But the low side is that you might actually mistake your ring tone that really the animal is crying and end up missing the calls. If it were your spouse who had been constatnly calling you..........GOD save you.
The WACKY tones
These are the metal heads' choices. Loud jarring pop, rap, metal. Imagine sitting in a meeting and one such person gets a phone call. You would want to stop the discussions right there, let your hair down and start banging your head to the tone of heavy guitars and drums :-)
The FREAKY tones
A Mogambo type 'Huuuuaaaaaahhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaa" wicked laugh, Windows banging sort 'dapa tab...dapa tab.....dapadapa tab.....". A women shrieking "Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh", or a door opening "crrreeeeaaaaaaakk......crrreeeeaaaaaaaaaaaakkkk" followed by a "wwwhhhhhhhhhhooooossshhhh"
If not for anyone else, you are gonna wet your pants one day for sure with these tones.
The FILMY song tones
"Volume kam kar....Papa jag jaayega"......or
"Tan ta daaaaaann....aaja aaja dil nichode, raat ki matki tode..........."
or the melodious "Khuda Jaane ke....Mein fida hoon.....khuda jaane ke....mein mit gaya......"
can instantly tell you that the person is a movie maniac and is an updated movie database.
The Drama tones
"Kitne Aadmi The....." Gabbar Singh questioning.......and it continues.
"mere pas aaj bangla hai....gaadi hai....bank balance hai....tumhare pas kya hai"............kinda ones.
Are you in mood for some drama and tamasha, well go ahead!!
The BOOSTER tones
These kind are not particularly of any rap, pop or metal. But it somehow boosts up the ego of the person whenever he/she receives a call. With ring tones set as the Mission Impossible theme music or the James Bond theme music, energy level peps up sooner than imagined.
The REGULAR tones
Last but not the least, the ever green regular and old fashioned TRING-TRING or the TURAAAN-TURAAAN ones.
Folks having these as tones don't want to join the bandwagon or happy with the TRING-TRING so much so that their latest iPhone would have TRING-TRING as the ring tone.
Do you folks have any more types to add? Welcome :-)
