  1. Hi,

    Recently I came across some great articles on your site.
    The other day, I was discussing (http://www.boneless.in/2013/06/kolkata-wireless-telecom-market-2013.html)with my colleagues and they suggested I submit an article of my own. Your site is just perfect for what I have written!
    Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!

    Let me know what you think
