Nostralgic…

From the beginning, that is easily five decades back, a post office was functioning at thundathum kadavu, catering to the communication needs of Varapuzha citizens. Even today the office functions at the same building. The old post master’s quarters was in ruins. A welcome change was the presence of the ladies cycles of the post women. Entry of women into an area, which was otherwise dominated by men. The atmosphere is definitely much cleaner, and the staff more polished in their dealings. I was greeted by a familiar smell, the smell of the free supply of gum for those who wanted to paste something..may be a cover or a stamp. The table was also same…no changes….yes, it was nostralgic…

Captured, right in front of the Varapuzha post office. The letter box is corroded, yet functional. Writing a letter using paper and pen, then putting it into an envelope and posting it…oops….email is always easier, and at the same time we all miss the nostalgia of waiting for a letter from some one special…..that wait was romantic, painful yet sweet…. We have already lost the joy of waiting for a letter from someone special. Thanks to instant messengers…
