Next clearance

It has been a long while since I had thought of a post-office. And here I am, thinking letters and mailboxes at least once a day over yesterday and today! Last afternoon, it was because my son wanted to post a letter from Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad: they have a special cancellation for letters posted there and he wanted to send one to his school, just to have the postmark.

Today, it turns out that I have to look for a mailbox again, for a different kind of 'posting' - luckily, I had this picture, taken a couple of years ago, and that's turned out to be useful. This one is on Poonamallee High Road and is serviced by the Flowers Road Post Office - or, to use the technically correct status, the Flowers Road Sub-Office (Delivery).

I hope they will still go ahead and make the next clearance at 10.45 am tomorrow, as the window on the mailbox says!

It is 'Theme Day' over at the City Daily Photo portal. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

If you go to the erstwhile Danish settlement of Tranquebar - read that as Tharangambaditoday- that's about 280 kms South of Chennai on the coast, there is a 100 year old Post office and once you get inside, it is evident that time has stood still here.You can see a red cast iron post box that's about the size of my overhead water tank. Let's see if I have a picture of that.
