Mobiles outstrip India landlines

Cellphone mania continues. BBC reporting that mobile phone number will be outstripping landlines in India. Where 1.5 million Indians are signing up for mobile phones every month.

The trend is seen worldwide: mobiles are outstripping landlines as people by-pass often slow state-run firms to sign up for cheaper cellular services.

In India, rickshaw drivers and domestic servants are among the new users.

Life on the road has become all the more exciting. Previously you have to pray for the road safety and now you have to deal with drivers talking over the cellphone on their two wheelers.
On the positive side, people have more sense of safety in the day to day life. Specially women and thats a great social change.
