Missed Calls

I saw this interesting article in Rediff.com detailing about a particular phenomenon that exists in India Missed Calls.

This is interesting read. I was not aware that missed calls are used in such a huge manner. I should be saying that I am also a guilty party in doing it. When i am in India, I also indulge in the habit of giving missed calls to my friends to indicate something, but in all truthfulness that was not generally the case.

Also just imagine the situation when Mobile phones were non existent. How did people used to convey messages. Are we calling up every now and then just to entertain ourselves and stop ourselves from being bored to death.
