Shashi Kanth, a call center worker, rides his motor scooter near his home on a weekend in Bangalore, India. (Shashi Kanth is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) Like many of the thousands of call center workers in India, he relies on fast-food meals, candy bars, and coffee to sustain him through the long nights spent talking to Westerners about various technical questions and billing problems. He took a temporary detour into the call center world to pay medical and school bills but finds himself still there after two years, not knowing when or if he will return to his professional studies.
