Day 16 prompt for "May Photo A Day Challenge : A challenge that will change your life" is 'Mailbox'.
Mails delivered at home hold a special place in my heart. There is some old-world charm to it, it reminds you of an era gone by. And in those days, I loved going to the post offices to get the stamps, for book-post etc. I quite enjoyed the whole process (Yeah! I am a sucker for all things old-world!). The post-office near my place is a really old 2 rooms settlement with dim dim lighting and some aunties and uncles behind the counters busy in their world. Really! But I love it. It has that laid-back feeling to it, like the time has stopped here. And it still is the same!
The post office in this picture is however is way up in the hills of Jammu & Kashmir, Vaishno Devi Bhawan complex to be precise. It was a quaint little place situated at one of the turns in the complex. It was so nice to read the India Post board. Sadly, it had closed down for the day by the time we reached there.
