More Questions than Answers!

Well, here is a call for comments and help from my Indian Posse out there!

About 2 or 3 times a night at my house, I hear someone blow a whistle. I'm talking like a sports whistle. It isn't repeated, just like a quick trill or two or three & then nothing for a while. At first, I thought it was just a one time thing, but I'm noticing a trend.

Anyone have any idea why someone might be blowing a whistle? Here are my early theories:

1) Late Night Soccer match in the yard..... Low Probability of being true, but fun to think about
2) Someone approaching my guard house on a bike or foot - the cars all honk to get the guards attention, maybe these guys whistle?

Anyhow - if you have an idea - or even a theory, let me know!

Scott, between June and now I'm sure you've figured out-but I'll say it anyway-that the nightly whistling is the night watchman letting you know he hasn't gone to sleep.

I am sure you would know by now but I just read this post! That whistling sound is made by the watchman a.k.a guard, while on duty at night.
it's funny when sometimes kids do not sleep, in Indian households, they are told "sleep or the watchman (chauwkidar) will come and question you"
