hello_one_night_at_call_center.jpgDo you know about “one night at call center” ? No, then let me tell you, it is an English novel written by Chetan Bhagat. Chetan Bhagat is an IIT graduate, working in Goldman Sachs. This is his second novel after “5 point someone”. He is regarded as the best selling Indian novelist of modern times. The story of “one night at call center” revolves around a group of six call center employees working in Connexions call center in Gurgaon and are striving to seek a better life.  The novel is full of drama with pleasant and unpleasant things happening to all the 6 leading characters. Ultimately, they get a phone call from God which changes their life. You will find in this novel many aspects of modern life in India like anger of lost love, thwarted ambitions, lack of family affection, pressures of a family, and the work environment in a call center. It is a very interesting tale of Urban India nights and believe me once you start this novel, you will definitely complete it in single sitting.

Now come to the point. Read the title of the post. Don’t you find it amazing ? What is the meaning of “Hello one night at call center” ? Actually “Hello” is the name of the coming Bollywood movie based on this novel. So “Hello” is based on the events that happen one night at a call center.

Another character Esha, who is hoping for the break as a model. Radhika, who is a housewife is not happy with her family life. Military Uncle has been barred from meeting his grandchild. Bakshi is the big boss, the manager of the company. Suddenly there is twist in the story when these call center workers receive a call from God.

    Hi there, this is my first visit. Found your site from BlogCatalog.com via Google: while searching for Call Centers.

    So anyway, I wasn’t going to comment until after reading the description of this book. Thanks for turning me on to this author.

    Do yourself a favor, skip this movie an watch: Call Center employees generally do not break out into song and dance when trouble ensues. Chetan Bhagat is overrated and his books are mediocre at best.
