In today’s time because of internet and digitization, our postal service is lagging behind but the way railway and postal department has taken the decision to release a postal stamp of a railway station is really a commendable effort. I feel our younger generation should have the knowledge about history, culture and architectural beauty of our country,” he said.

I am not that intelligent but I feel if we can introduce a digital setup along with postal service which can give free access to people to send their letters through some kind of internet service then, I feel we can revive postal service and the romance behind sending the letters will be kept intact. I am really happy that Ashish (Shelar) saab and other dignitaries who have invited me in this function as a representative of residents of Bandra.” He quipped, “Now they have entered till Bandra station and they have promised me that they will enter in my house too.
