What’s the significance?

At the Karnataka Road Transport Corporation bus stand last week, I noticed this strange sight:

upended pot in bus stand 260408

The pot was not there to provide a home for birds (in fact, I would say that pigeons and crows rate as pests and are not encouraged there) and it was upended in a net, so that the opening of the pot faced down. I could not find anyone who could give me a reason why it was suspended from the roof of the bus station. Any explanations, anyone?

    I used to see this in indoor shuttle badminton courts. Someone explained that this is the simplest way to prevent echoes (there should be no echoes from hitting the shuttle cock since it will distract the player from concentrating on future shots).
    So I guess the same logic holds true for the BTS bus stand also.
