Only Indians make, receive missed calls: Study

India, wonderland of invention

New rules and newer convention

Communicating without a word spoken

A missed call, more than just a token

Announcing or acknowledging presence

The purpose served, in it’s  true essence

Even if it does add to increasing din

A missed call is, for both, a win-win

 

Ever growing, we’re told ,is tele density

Growing along with it is this propensity

Speaking costs money, why w’d anyone will

Turning in his grave, Alexander Graham Bell

    The habit is as old as STD in India. Remember the ‘good old days’ when a 2-minute call home would strip you of half your pay packet ? I am sure the money we spent in those days was gainfully utilized to feed the the fat cows of ??? who now go under a different name of ????.

    A friend of mine spent his entire stay in hostel by daily giving a missed call to his parents at 10:30 pm. A single ring missed call meant “I am OK, how are you ?” A return single ring missed call at 10:35 pm meant “We are fine, thank you.” A 2-ring missed call meant “We need to talk, come on line…”

    Even now, most of Sarkari Baboos rely heavily on giving missed calls if calling from personal Mobiles.
