OC Jalandhar, October 8 Remember the days when there were no mobile phones and access to internet and email was very limited. Everyone used to stand near the gate of the house past noon waiting for the arrival of khaki-dressed postman. There used to be much excitement as he would hand over blue colour inland letters, postcards or money orders. In all this, one attraction used to be collection of rare, commemorative postal stamps and cards. That era long over, the Department of Posts still exists even though there are just about only a handful of letters being posted using the postal mail. Against nearly 500 letter boxes that were fixed at various points of the Jalandhar division, there are nearly 370 now. While some have a letter or two coming Even as the World Posts Day falls on Saturday, the Department of Posts has plans to celebrate National Postal Week from October 11 to 17. Banking Day will be observed on October 11, Postal Life Insurance Day on October 12, Philately Day on October 13, Business Development Day on October 14 and Mail Day on October 16. <
The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
