Lately I have been getting some missed calls and blank calls from unknown numbers. The landline numbers were easy to locate as I know the STD code for Pune is 022. In an effort to locate the mobile numbers from which I was getting these calls I tried to search the mobile number series on the net. I found the following link, which gives a state wise list of mobile number series.
I searched and Voila! 98506 is an Idea Cellular MSC code for Maharashtra (excluding Mumbai). It’s easy now, as the only other city in Maharashtra, where there could be someone knowing me is Pune. BTW, are there s/w companies in any other city of Maharashtra apart from Mumbai and Pune? Well, yes, Nagpur has some…but there’s very rare chance that someone who knows me would be in Nagpur (for there are very few companies there, and the ones that are there are quite smaller ones, besides I don’t remember any of my friend, or friend’s friend or anyone in distant knowledge of mine moving to Nagpur).
So, Pune it is. Now I have to figure out, who it is this time? and Why ?
