A postcard I made from my empty, used Vicco toothpaste tube:

split open, flattened, cleaned, permanent marker written, decorated with colorful stamps, laminated and... sent... or so I thought ! But with unregistered postcards or letters Indian post is a gamble. This item was most likely stolen by a postmen on the way. It never reached it's destination, like other items I had mailed before.

The face-to-face service in the branch is always welcoming and warm (see my story: http://jpgmag.com/stories/17586 ) but once the sender is out of the picture and the postcard changes hands, sacks and carriers - liability drops to non-existant
