When I had received a mail from somebody from Hachette India asking for my mailing address (to send a book), I was apprehensive on two counts. It is usually the author who contacts me for sending a review copy & mostly there is a build up about the book before a request for a review comes in.

So I received my copy of Bangalore Calling from the publishers and I as I sat down to read it, I almost saw my life flashing by.

A good easy read. Liked the different stories relating the various category of people working for BPOs. Was anxious to hear Basu's story from his own perspective and was disappointed by the turn of events in his story!
