Postman and Post Office: An Endangered species.Wind the clock a few decades back, n0 phones, no internet, think of how people used to communicate - letters, writing letters and receiving letters was the main mode of communicating news good and bad. Many of our elders would have told us stories of how they used to wait for the village postman to come and deliver letters to them.
Times have changed, today very few people use the post office for the true purpose of posting letters. Many don't mind dropping the letter at the private courier company but are hesitant to visit the post office to use the same services.
With the rapid changes that we see, soon the postman would be forgotten, postmen and post offices would be absorbed into the government machinery.
Long live the postman and the postal tradition.
