India through my eyes – In the days of twitter and FB statuses

I saw this quaint little postbox just before I entered the portals of the Hoysala temple, Somnathpur .One day I told myself, I will shut myself from the digital world and return here , just to send a real post card to myself at least .I did that during my first international trip, when I was 21 and all excited to cover South East Asia and Australia. I sent a post card to my parents from every country and each post card was a souvenir . I didnt have money to buy anything and my memories lie in those post cards

    We doesn’t realize it’s worth much these days, and amazing just today I read an interesting piece of info about this letter box which is a replacement of shoes. A Portugal crew whose ship forced to land in South African by a storm and being uncertain about return to home, he wrote a letter describing his situation and kept it in an old shoe and hanged it on a tree, where someone would find to know what happens!

    I have done that 3-4 times for exactly the same reasons. But did not get all postcards, probably the postman was also interested in them. 😉

    Such a lovely thought.Yeah the gen next Gurus keep harping…let go! let go! little realising that there are some so close to us that eventually letting go seems JUST TOO SAD rather letting in sounds better and feels best.
    Can’t forget the thrill and excitement of Chithi aayee hai, chithee ayyee hai.
    Postcards the yellow ones didn’t even need tearing the folds and the contents devoured without a wink.
    Do that Lakshmi…post a card for urself. 🙂
