Saturday October 9 is World Post Day (WPD). As another WP-Day passes by in a modern internet/email/SMS era, some of us are wondering just where the closest post office is located-and have not handled a proper snail mail for months, except for the various bills that are delivered to our doors on time!

Our Postal Services needs to reinvent, if it is to survive. Perhaps taking this hint, Sri Lanka Post early this week made an announcement–we are now allowed to design and print our own stamps for use in snail mails/postal service. Confused?
