Thursday challenge - Old

One of the Old professions in Mumbai - Writing letters, filling up money order forms and other sundry writing needs of the illiterate migrants who came to Bombay to make a living. Now with technological advances the number of 'writers' has dwindled to a very few. They were and are mostly found outside the General Post Office.

  2. I see. I fear that the skill and beauty of writing, and also reading a proper book, is being unfortunately pushed aside!
