A few of my friends have shifted abroad for further studies; and one of them was telling me how lonely she used to feel sometimes, so far away from home and family.
I myself have been staying away from home for 3 years now, but its still been in India itself, and its pretty fine compared to going to an absolutely new place where people speak funny and look at you strangely.

One of the things she told me was how happy she would get whenever she got any post, the snail mail kind.
Even if it was just junk mail or bills to be paid, seeing an actual envelope, addressed to you specifically was almost like a parcel from home. It beat email hands down! (or atleast that's what she told me :)
So, this year I decided, I would send some snail mail to everyone, for New Year!
Like many of my self initiated projects, I was not sure if I would actually pull it off, considering how lazy I am, and how much I procrastinate.
But then finally I sat, with 2 season's worth of Psych episodes on the playlist, all my watercolors, palettes and brushes spread out and a new bottle of waterproof black ink !Took some time out of my busy (not) schedule, and made about 20-25 postcards for my friends and family, and sent them all off with nice stamps of Rajiv Gandhi on top.

Mini paintings in the making...

Some finished ones! :D


All in decorated envelopes and ready to go!

Some Final ones!
