He was sleeping in his home. Some noise outside the home spoiled his sleep. He was frustrated. He decided, "I'll sleep only when I get complete silence around me." He came out of home and screamed at people who were making noise. Those people stopped making noise.
Still there was not complete silence.
He made up his mind to find a place of complete silence.
He was beating a drum, shouting and asking everyone where he could get a place of complete silence.
When I saw him, I laughed at him. I wondered why he was looking for more silence. He was better off in his home.
He was shouting in search of silence.
