Messenger of yesteryear must not die

By RK Rishikesh Sinha Come July 14, the telegram service rendered by the government would become a technology of the past. We all, definitely have some faint memories. Though I have never used the telegram extensively, but of course I had used the telegram service twice. And both the times I sent telegrams to my father asking for money. It seems humorous in the present real-time communication world and nostalgic too. But that was a period and time. It stills hard to imagine it was 1996-1997. The telegram service was used by people.
