My sister and I were going through all the old picture albums at home and she came across this extremely cute old post card.
In 1958 my dad set sail to United Kingdom to do his MSC Tech from Manchester University. He traveled from Mumbai to UK via sea in ship called “Strathand” which took him 21 days to get there. He said he was instructed by his mom to write her a letter every week to begin with :).
Below is what I think is one the first post cards he sent home to my grandma while still on the ship, when they made a stop over at Aden. The content is typical of my dad. “Dear Mother, I have forgotten to take the addresses & the birthdates of everybody. Please when you write to Manchester; write all of them in the letter. Your loving son Manek”
