I remember that even a few years back all homes with relatives or immediate family living abroad, would faithfully shop for clothes for the upcoming festival days in advance or even before months so that the parcel would reach them on time or earlier. Sticthing blouses to their size or pavadai chattai for the kids, sending it to them even thru freinds or someone going to that place, what fun that was!!!!!! Is it that the shops there abroad are fulfilling the needs or sending such parcels in the computer yuga is out of fashion??? Why is this like this year's diwali pattasu sales becoming a forgotten practice??????
