Writing letters or receiving
them at the Post Office are things that people here have totally
forgotten. With mobile phones readily available, we now have the
entire world on our palms and it is not just the cellular
phones, the internetís website and email services have made
communications faster, cheaper and more reliable.

First you labor out writing a
letter and then go hunting for stamps only sold at Post Offices
far away; there are times when people had to queue for services
there. Then you have to take the letter to the mail slots and
then go back home, sit back and wait with your fingers crossed
for it to get there. This may take weeks, sometimes the letters
will never be delivered.
That used to be the pain of
communicating via mail boxes those bygone days should, with all
due respect, remain forgotten for good. With email one can
nowadays send anything, letters, picture and video attachments
and these are delivered in less-than-a-second to whichever

I donít remember when exactly
was the last time I wrote, sent or received a letter through the
post office. I doubt if there are people who still use this mode
of communication. Nowadays we have mobile phones which allow us
to communicate faster, cheaper and more conveniently even when
the credit is low you can ask the other party to call you or
simply send a text message (sms).
New technology is enabling us
to save time and money as opposed to the snail mail that was the
Post Office based communication.

It is impossible to go back to
the old communication system of sending letters that used to
take ages before being delivered. Today you can communicate with
anybody, anywhere and at anytime of the day at most effective
and much cheaper ways.
Using mobile phones, you can get
reports of children at school, relatives who are sick back home,
get directions and through internet you get a minute-by-minute
update of global events. Going back to the post office mail? No
