Yesterday night saw the last telegram ever being sent in India. A service which began in 1850 in British-ruled India, stopped functioning after 163 years of bringing good, bad, happy, sad news to millions in the country.
I really wanted to go and send myself and some other close people a last telegram as a souvenir of a bygone era, but with one thing and another, that didn’t happen. Oh well.
Thank you Indian Telegraph. You are a veteran, martyred to rapidly changing technology.
