Israel Diary 2 – The unique Postboxes.


Sample Telegram (courtesy Google)

Come 15th July and the famous “Telegram” of BSNL comes to an end. “Taar” as it’s popularly known as among Indians, it was ordinary but Urgent! It would be used mostly by common man to send a sudden happy or sad news, no grey shades. The emotional drama attached to the “Taar”, it was unique. With advancement of technology, telegram is hardly used. So finally it’s R.I.P Telegram! Before 14th July, few of us have decided to exchange telegrams. It would be wonderful to keep a copy saved with us.

Coming to Israel, the next thing which intrigued me was their Postboxes. They have some very nice ones and are bound to grab your attention. I took pictures of many but let me share some which are my personal favorites. Click on the photograph and enjoy the slide show!

  6. Some of these postboxes seem to have an Indian design, don’t you think? Beautiful really. Makes me hate my current letter box. By the way, no one caught you snooping around taking photos of letter boxes?


    • Hahahaha. No, I don’t take any risk. I am following the advise of a colleague. I ask someone around and only after that take the shot. There are with me some beautiful collection of windows’ pictures. All those I made sure to take permission.
