The postman ain't going nowhere

I'm shacked up in Delhi with some friends at a guesthouse that is just off the road from Dak Bhavan. When my colleague and I first saw that noble building, we wondered aloud if post offices and snail mail would survive as the years went by and the internet became ubiquitous. Surely not, we snorted collectively and all-knowingly, as bloggers sometimes are prone to doing.

Well, in an excellent post titled "Letters, email, and man's love for paper," Shivaji Das writes that snail mail will survive because of a) corporates and b) man's affinity for paper. He makes some good pundits.

(I discovered Shivaji's blog via Saket.)
