Chetan Bhagat, a well-known columnist, screen writer and speaker is the author of the novel, One Night @ the Call Center. The author, who is an Indian based writer, reflects his skills in writing novels, not only suitable to Indian readers but also novel lovers across the world. He has also earned the credit of writing six block-buster novels. Chetan Bhagat writes columns for English and Hindi newspapers. He is also a motivational speaker who tends to concentrate his speech and writings on youth of this country.
The book reflects various things at one shot. The thing which fascinated the most was, getting a phone call from god! The idea of this is more relevant to the contemporary world. The phone call is a solution to people who run in a race of this mechanical world, with loads of problems on their back. Excluding these things on a serious note, the author tries to throw light on each character in the story, through uniqueness in each character.
Shyam, Priyanka, Vroom, Esha, Radhika and Military Uncle are colleagues in a call center, who will have unique characteristics, differing ambitions, and how they pull themselves and resolve their issues finally. An unfaithful husband, a scheming boss, apathetic grandchildren and a forced engagement are just some of their collective problems, and when the gang decides to take some time off work, a freak accident leads to a precarious situation – one that’s life altering. To put it in a nut shell, the book contains all possible kinds of emotions and versatile entertainment. Lastly, it is a typical Chetan Bhagat’s writing! I enjoyed reading the book and hope you too will.
