Partition’s pains can never be forgotten. Millions of our sisters and brothers were displaced and many lost their lives due to mindless hate and violence. In memory of the struggles and sacrifices of our people, 14th August will be observed as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day.
I mailed a birthday card with a 1st class stamp at a Post Office on July 28 hoping for delivery on August 1.
It arrived today August 15.
It took 18 days to travel 3 miles.
Last year’s birthday card arrived the day after I mailed it at the same Post Office.
