LA IMPOSIBILIDAD DEL SILENCIO

silencio1El semestre pasado tuve un estudiante coreano en el curso de Formación Ciudadana en la Universidad. Amable, silencioso, atento, risueño.

No hubo gran interacción verbal. Apenas pudimos aprender algo de él y su país. Ming, como se llama, tenía severas dificultades con el español y fue gran impedimento.

En la última clase, mientras llegaban los estudiantes a la sala, conversamos. Le pregunté por su experiencia en Colima, la comida, la Universidad, la gente. Todo muy bien. Solo hizo dos comentarios non gratos a las buenas conciencias. En resumen, contó que en Colima los jóvenes pensaban que era homosexual por sus formas respetuosas, mesuradas, amables, tranquilas.

El segundo aspecto me sorprendió: aquí son todos muy ruidosos, dijo. Cuando entran o salen de un salón, de las habitaciones, azotan las puertas. Son gritones, escandalosos, etcétera. ¿Y allá no? Repliqué. No, aseveró de inmediato. Y explicó. Los estudiantes habían llegado y debíamos comenzar. No hablamos más.

Recordé aquella conversación esta mañana, mientras intento concentrarme en mi cubículo de la facultad, a pocos metros de la calle transitada. El ruido ordinario es admisible, normal, pero con frecuencia asaltan las camionetas con alto volumen y música que no acierto (ni me importa) a identificar. Y desde hace poco, la taquería de al lado, justito atrás de nuestro edificio, saca sus bocinas a la calle y nos aturde repitiendo una y doscientas veces la canción comercial que invita a pasar a un costado del Bachillerato 4 a devorar sus ricos tacos.

Tienen derecho a trabajar, sin duda. Pero nosotros a trabajar en silencio o sin atarantarnos con la música que no elegimos. A pesar de eso, confieso con sinceridad, nunca he tenido la tentación de patear el equipo de sonido simulando un accidente cuando paso por la acera. Espero que un día repare en su desliz, y no que la falta de clientes le obligue a cerrar, lo que parece más inminente.

Esa falta de respeto a otros, ese meternos por los oídos la música que a ellos les gusta, tan habitual entre nuestros alegres muchachos, junto con la imposibilidad de practicar el silencio, me parecen una expresión del vacío desolador que, con frecuencia, nos consume y buscamos exorcizar con nuestros vicios.

    I agree with Ming. Maybe, we need a little discipline.

    Not everyone in Colima is so noisy.

    I think that increase the volume outside it’s irritating.

    The silence it’s so important to the education and we don’t giving enough inportance.

    I think that for these diferents that there are between Corea and Mexico we are lower than them in education and other thins.

    We could think that it’s a insignificant thing but I think that it’s one of the main reasons whereby there are students with low academic levels.
