The boiling kettle is a simple item, so thoroughly annealed into our lives that one could not possibly give it any meaning beyond its utilitarian role. As everyday and easy to overlook as it is, it has been written about in great detail in the tripithakas. When the whistle blows, it takes one aback by the senses; one naturally realizes that is time to take it off the fire, and the moment this action is performed, it is like nothing ever happened. Somewhere in the Buddhist texts, they say that the whistling kettle is akin to the anger in us (or restlessness, jealousy, any emotion that induces unease in the mind) and that these emotions are triggers for us to take some action.
