Yes, we saw an inland letter with our home address on television screen on Doordarshan.
Our connection to Postal Department is since the days of my great grandfather Shri Pherumal Motiramani who was a postmaster in Jhalawar (Rajasthan). My father inherited philately as a hobby and I as a kid became a fan of postal codes and geography.
We were watching television and the programme was about lost letters which never reach out to addressee as they change their locations without informing local post office.
Suddenly we saw our own letter with the above address. This was many years ago. In this age of electronic communication, I would still like to have an archive of that programme of Doordarshan.
Can you please suggest how can I get access to that old archive and retain a copy for our reference?
Since then I always informed local post offices of our address change and always been friends with postman on Diwali.
Now I have their mobile numbers as well.
“We are moving too fast in Life. ”
When my friend commented, i was comprehending it with full attention. I myself have been a technology slave and still i am to some extent. The speed of information which was supposed to save time is demanding more time from me.
“When we were kids we had all the time and luxury. When i was earning Rs. 3000/- a month salary i was enjoying it much more than currently being country manager of an MNC.” My friend commented.
The information rich have gone time poor. Time poverty is asking us to slow down in life and look at things with a pause. If you feel the same please do join us in a movement to look at life from different perspective.
On this platform we would like to discuss about Slow Movement. Basically everything with slowness and mindfulness rather than a hectic pace of life.
With this background we would like to propose a series of WhatsAppinars to discuss slowness as a skill in the contemporary settings. The first WhatsAppinar is being planned on this Saturday April 29, 2017.
The idea is not to eat away your time on a weekend but you may join at your will. However we would request your 15 minutes of contribution on what you think about “Speed of Life”. Share your experiences.
I would recommend you to have a look at this video from Carl Honore, Author of “In Praise of Slowness” before joining in.
We can sync in for the WhatsAppinar on the following link
Please do share your suggestions if any.
