Dada jan’s letters written to Dadi Jan through the course of the 50’s and 60’s testifying again and again his love for her and his belief in their eventual meeting and togetherness.

Shameen also shared a glimpse into her dada’s letters:
For the ones who’ve been asking for a glimpse of them – they end lyrically in my grandfather’s pure Urdu. ‘Yours, Raza’ they say. Their love story requires a separate piece, one which my father and I are planning to work on over the weekends pic.twitter.com/HETJwpWjTZ

It had some realize that they were born in the wrong era:
Stories like these make me feel like I was born in the wrong era. People would write and post letters, wait for them to reach, and for their loved one to reply.. Yet their feelings wouldnt die
Nowadays with whatsapp ppl still dont make time for you. 'Long distance' is an excuse https://t.co/1TRgQPb7Ms

We’re all for reviving this trend:
When I say about reviving the trend of hand written letters I'm referring to stuff like that.
It becomes the part of someone's existence, eternally pure right from the heart without using any backspaces. https://t.co/Tog7PNZTLu

Never in a hundred years!
There’s something about letters. Nothing gets lost in translation. They seem pure regardless of what they are about.
Modern communication could never. https://t.co/tIaWqfbnPf

Many shared stories of their own grandparents:
I got a handful of letter written by my grandparents.(Didn't read it) but each one of them were token of love and emotion. And they used live 30KM apart, which is equal to daily work commute distance. https://t.co/t24V0DalGD

And people were astonished at how technology had taken away from their writing skills:
I agreed. Take smartphone from me and i my writing and vocabulary skills would stand as exposed. 😭😭

My mother has kept my abba’s letters, pictures and recordings the same way. They were apart from each other for 5 years after getting married and he would send her cassettes of all the love songs & ghazals. May lord keep them together forever. ☺️
