Thanks to today’s prompt as I discovered that there is a mail box hidden in my apartment just beside the lift in a dark corner ;). A brand new one which is untouched and unused. I could find an old Deccan Herald news paper in it though!
After stepping out of the gym I keenly observed the surroundings but couldn’t find a mail box in the vicinity. In this digital age where even bills are paid online I guess many don’t feel the necessity to get one outside their homes . Just when I was getting disappointed my husband who came to pick me up said, “We have one at our apartment right ! You say that you have a very sharp vision :P,” he mocked. I remembered a Urdu proverb , “Bagal mein bacha gaaon me dhindora” which means you are holding the baby in arms but making a fuss searching for it in the town!
Thankfully my problem was resolved and I jubilantly clicked the mail box or post box in my apartment much to the amusement of onlookers. Watchman had that scary expression on his face as if the next thing I will do is plant a bomb in the post box. A man who was reversing his car looked at me as if I am stealing petrol from another car 😛 I ignored all the stares and happily clicked. I feel so glad when people don’t understand what I am up to 🙂 He was still gazing at me and I was happily checking the pics while pressing the elevator button. He for sure would have come to a conclusion that I am a GONE CASE! I don’t mind as today’s prompt ate my head !

Thanks to the apps on my Iphone- Instagram and Piccollage. They are wonderful apps which assisted and are still assisting me to survive this challenge. They make even boring pics interesting. The empty mail box seemed sad to me hence I added the love stamp and an envelop sticker around the POST BOX. I added them as they reminded me my school and college days when I used to write hordes of letters to mom and friends. I used to make sure that the letter box at home was always full :). I used to do lot of art work on envelops. I love making hand made cards. Even now I make them for mom. We all sms or chat on facebook or whats app and mail each other “if needed” but my heart is always trapped in that letter box. All the beautiful letters which sometimes were 8 pages long are preserved in a file at home. Phew ! Before I get drowned in the sea of nostalgia ending this post with a beautiful Telugu song which always reminds me the old letters and envelops!
