Obama Won, Pigs Flew!


Penned with Love

How long has it been since you wrote a letter? -A letter on paper with a pen, which was then mailed in an envelope bearing a stamp? More likely, it would have been a while, right?

A handwritten letter is definitely a treat to receive. Someone makes you feel so special by taking time to sit down and put his thoughts across - just for you! My close friends who remember my birthday used send their wishes by post! …A lovely handpicked greeting card with a hand written note, sealed in an envelope with a five-rupee stamp stuck on it – I don’t think my birthday can be made more precious and memorable in any other way!

…Gone are those days!! E-mail has sadly taken over the pleasure of receiving and sending letters and greeting cards. These days most of us receive only silly one-liners sent out from outlook typed without the slightest interest or concern.

However, last week my face lit up when my best; no – bestEST friend sent me a greeting card on Friendship Day; in fact I received one after a long long time! Perhaps she doesn’t realize how overjoyed I was and how it has brightened up my day!

My Dear Friend,

Even with all the words of our language
And with the breadth of sky and sea,
I still can’t express what you mean to me!

Together with my dearie friend, so many memories made; …and so many yet to make!
