Send me a postcard

It makes us happy to receive a postcard or a greeting card from friends and cousins from distant places. As a child, I always collected the post cards with the beautiful scenery, soft toys and gods. I have preserved both the printed and the hand made cards. When someone sends a greeting card in an envelop with a stamp on it, I would remove the stamp with care and add them to my philately collection. This is how, I collected many stamps from India and overseas.

Jan 8th 2013, I signed up Postcrossing that brought me, the memories of childhood when we conveyed greetings to friends and cousins a colorful card, hand written message that gave a personal touch. I am sure all of us still wish to receive a hand made card than a forwarded SMS or an email which we would delete or reply "wish you the same"... How many still send greeting card? :)

I had clicked so many photos that I decided to get them printed as a postcard and send it to my friends across the globe. A couple of weeks later, they were happy to see a postcard being sent to them. A friend of mine sent this photo where he had the postcard pinned up at his cube. 

How postcrossing works? Send a post card to a random person in the world in turn you will receive a post card from a random person. This works! Sign up postcrossing to send and receive the postcards.
