more power to the letter

wrote a letter last night. was forced to rather. figured out it was raksha bandhan yesterday. was slightly embarassed when my brother beat me in wishing 'Happy Rakhi'. decided that i HAD to send a rakhi even if it reached late. figured out that i couldn't email a rakhi, and hence had to put pen to paper (yeah, it IS rude to send a rakhi without a letter). believe me, it's not as difficult as u think. really, u should try it. ur handwriting may go awry a bit due to lack of practise but it's good, yeah, it's good. thoughts flow as well if not better when u write. and once i got going there was no stopping (until i ran outa paper). unfortunately, i had very little paper at home (the paper-free home is no myth). stole a piece of paper from mom-in-law's prayer notebook after ribbing her about her child-like scrawl. now comes the hard part. envelopes, stamp, posting, blah blah. it's hard as it is to write letters, and then there's this whole load of process involved in actually sending the damn letter. (considering this is coming from a person who used to write at least 2 letters a week a decade ago, it sounds quite pathetic). i guess i have to disillusion myself that life DOES NOT get easier. not with technology, not with a better paying job, not with a bigger, better (!?) company, not with marriage... (ok, now i'm just ranting).
anyways, i'm gonna click the 'post' button now and get this over and done with. and then i need to go and post my letter...
