Well, may be 10 years back.
As a kid I loved writing letters and what I loved even more was receiving them.
My letters were written as neatly as possible, in good handwriting, without any or little mistakes. Carefully sealed and stamped, they were dropped at the nearest post box.
And then when the postman would deliver a letter in response, I would jump around the whole house in happiness. I also had a collection of old letters, stamps and postcards. But that was then.
Times have changed, technology has developed. These are the days of emails and social networking sites. But somehow I don't like writing emails. May be I'm too lazy for that. I'd rather leave a short message on somebody's wall. Nothing elaborate. Emails are mostly those that are forwarded in bulk. Some joke, some short story, some funny picture, and some other "forward to another 12, or you will die" rubbish.(how I hate them!!)
Yes, communication has no doubt become easier. But somehow somewhere something is amiss. May be its the personal touch. I keep wondering. May be its just me. Er...I have no clue.
