The Letter!

The Letter!

What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters. You can’t re – read a phone call.

~ Liz Carpenter

It was just a different time, when I was young and my parents would receive letters. I used to dream of the day when I would be all grown up and receive mail of my own. Times have changed. But I haven’t. I still love writing letters to convey thoughts and feelings. And I have made a few others fall in love with the idea of letters.

Usually, I hand deliver my letters. However, this one letter was different; it was the first one by post. I experienced so many emotions during the process of sending this letter; the apprehension that it won’t reach in time or that it would get lost in transit, the unexplainable joy when you know that it has been received and then the feeling that you could have done a better job with its contents.

But then I couldn’t think of any other way to make a Birthday special, especially without being there. Therefore, the Letter!

This young fellow was the only one of the children, at one village, who could communicate in Hindi to a certain extent. He was my translator.
