The joy of penning a letter in one’s own handwriting is long forgotten and has become outdated.  E-mails have usurped the pleasurable activity of writing letters to near and dear ones.

As a part of ongoing celebrations of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (AKAM), the Department of Posts (DOP), Ministry of Communication, in collaboration with the Department of School Education & Literacy, Ministry of Education has advocated the “75 Lakh Post Card Campaign”. The Campaign has come as a welcome change to the students of D.A.V. Public School, Velachery, Chennai.  Around 1900 postcards were distributed to the students from classes IV to XII.

The Aim of the campaign was to convey ideas of students to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on any one of the two topics, ‘Unsung Heroes of Freedom Struggle’ and ‘My Vision for India in 2047’ through a Postcard. The excitement of meeting the honourable Prime Minister and enthusiasm to use a postcard for the first time resulted in an overwhelming response from the students.Their curiosity turned into eagerness for writing the post card. The interesting topics further kindled their inquisitiveness. From the pile of postcards received, 10 best entries were selected and uploaded in ‘MyGov’ Portal on 20.12.2021. All the postcards were collected and handed over to Mr Satheesh Kumar, Public Relations Inspector, Department of Post, Guindy, Chennai.

The initiative helped the young learners write down their passionate lines about India’s valorous martyrs or what they foresee for our Nation in the coming years.
