Letters From The Past







letters dated in the years 1983, and 1981, letters from +20 years past.. found among the debris while cleaning the old house today, from the collection of my uncles.. and look where we have reached, at the age of e-mails, short messages, now twitter and even g-buzz ! but there were days when one would wait for a letter, when one would want to write a letter home, saying "mom, am fine" and ofcourse the letters of love, as seen in movies :P

years before even i was born
written in parch of papers
the life, and its worries,
the letters from the past.

I still cherish those old times when letters were a source of cheer!

Today, a lot of that has changed!

@ Rakesh bhai
a lot of things have indeed changed bro, and perhaps a lot more to change :)

Bad picture quality. Why didn't you try your dad's Sony Ericsson? The document mode of SE gives great clarity!

Chocolate Lover said...

the pic is not clear :|

anything handwritten has more personal touch.. and hence is always special.. these days does anyone sit and write letters? i wonder..

Issam said...

My dad still posesses a letter I wrote in pencil years back asking him permission to ride bicycle. :)
While that letter is still intact, the swarm of digitization might not leave the present mails the same way...God knows which format will be decipherable in the years to come... :)

@ Lopa
tried to focus on the date and thus all the rest got blurred, and yeah i agree SE is better :)

I remember... how can I forget? I used to buy 10 In Land Letters for Rs 5, when I was kid and write to all whom I knew...
.. and my wife will tell you about the 16 - 20 - 24 - 32 page letters we used to exchange!

Those were the days...
