GOODBYE TELEGRAMS!

GOODBYE TELEGRAMS AND TELEGRAPH DEPARTMENT!

THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL SERVICE YOU RENDERED TO US FOR 163 YEARS!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH STAFF - PAST AND PRESENT, 
OF TELEGRAPH DEPARTMENT!

WE SHALL NEVER FORGET YOU!

THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!


(After 163 years of excellent service, the Telegram service is being withdrawn at 9 PM today)
These photographs are of Sudhiksha at the Central Telegraph Office, Secunderabad, on the last day of the functioning of the Telegrams counter here, and of course all over the country. You can see her handing over a Telegram form of Lalli Naani, for a Telegram to be sent to Raghu Thaatha as a souvenir.  I shall attach a photocopy of that Telegram as soon as it is received sometime today. 
Telegram sent to me by my wife as a Souvenir on 14th July, the last working day of 163 Years Old Telegraph Services in India:
