This week’s Sunday Story (Post Number 2643) is on a very great and significant theme which I have been seeing and experiencing right from my childhood days! That is WORLD POST DAY normally observed on NINTH OCTOBER.
At age past Eighty, with the same enthusiasm and interest I look forward for the coming of our ward POSTMAN every day, not withstanding the fact that I get and send hundreds of messages through What’s App and Gmail! Nowadays, writing letters have become rare thanks to fast developing electronic communication system in vogue. Yet, I eagerly await the magazines and books in which my poems-articles- find a place!!
Here he is:
Our loving Postman to deliver in front of our Block.-with more than 3 decades of service!
Today there are POSTWOMAN also giving the essential service.
No day passes off sans expecting the arrival of the POSTMAN!
My observation and experience from my boyish days- Seventy years ran!
Great Village postmaster a God for the villagers even today!
Not only delivering the TAPAL but also reading and
Explaining the content to the receivers poor un educated!

For more than 150 years, the Department of Posts (DoP) has been the backbone of the country’s communication and has played a crucial role in the country’s social economic development. It touches the lives of Indian citizens in many ways: delivering mails, accepting deposits under Small Savings Schemes, providing life insurance cover under Postal Life Insurance (PLI) and Rural Postal Life Insurance (RPLI) and providing retail services like bill collection, sale of forms, etc. The DoP also acts as an agent for Government of India in discharging other services for citizens such as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) wage disbursement and old age pension payments. With more than 1,55,000 post offices, the DoP has the most widely distributed postal network in the world.
