Ofcourse, the conclusion couldn't have been arrived at if someone 'discussed' this in a friendly, easy-going manner. You know what I mean.

So, you finally spoke to them in their language. As we all know, being multilingual always helps.

Not just in India, people love to hate contractors all over. It is truly a global phenomenon.

For what it's worth, just placing a few wooden sheets (plywood types) upright between the cutting machine and your direction helps by reducing the audible sound to a considerable extent.
I've also read about computer softwares available which once fed a repetitive sound creates phase shifted sound which 'cancels' out the original sound. Quite similar to active noise cancelling headphones and IMO it should be fairly easy to play it out on your laptop and give it a shot.

Didn't get what you mean! What's with the 'Perfect Indian' mode?

No, I spoke in English and Hindi only.

Isn't this a very generic statement here? Most people give priority to getting their work done and not getting concerned about anybody else getting hit by it. I don't have any issues with the first part but I object on the second.

You get on someone's nerve, you'll get a reaction sooner or later.
