Blogathon post 10: The written word

While cleaning the cup-board in the morning, I found this: a letter that I had written to A in 2008.

After spending few joyous minutes wondering about the contents, my favorite pen (Waterman!) and the mood while writing the letter, it was a bittersweet realisation that the letter writing habits have diminished over time. Scrap the fancy word, they are practically non-existent now. 

Whose letters have made your memory? Mine have been made by Suba, my BFF who meticulously wrote letters detailing out most of the school incidents and Aarthi, who would end all of hers with cartoons and jokes.

Good 'ol times!!

Its fast diminshing, sigh! My mom used to keep notes about snacks and her whereabouts when she had to go somewhere before we came from school.. You kindled those memories.. And those who write letters in their mother tongue are dwindling in numbers too!

Kunal: Worst.mistake.of.my.life! Never trust the India Post!!
No letters from the love of your life - don't tell me!!!

Gayathri: truly - the yellow post card and the inland letters, and the family gatherings to read each letter!

R's Mom: Thanks re, pen ka kamaal hai!

There were a few. But mostly online.

Indeed there was one when I was going to Nigeria which made me cry!!!
