The telegraph has filled every corner of the Indian life. The postman wearing a khaki uniform will ring every door and hand in a telegram, whether it is a wedding or funeral celebration, a government department job announcement, or even a couple elopement message. But the tradition of 163 years of existence will go into history.
The state-run telecommunications company BSNL will issue the last telegram on the 15th, bidding farewell to the service introduced by a British doctor in 1850. The popularity of telephones, networks and mobile phones has made telegraphs like historical sites. In the past seven years, BSNL’s telegraph service has lost $250 million. In contrast, India’s domestic mobile phone users reached 867 million in April, twice as many as four years ago.
Although telegraphs have long since been eliminated in other parts of the world, the Indian society still used the telegraph as its main communication method until 30 years ago. At that time, there were 45,000 telegraph offices in the country, and now there are only 75.
In June, the government announced that it would terminate the telegraph service on the grounds that it could not bear the loss. The telegraph office of various localities appeared in the crowd, hoping to catch up with the historic moment. Information technology staff Jiang En and friends ran to the telegraph office. He said: “This will soon become history. The information we sent last will become a collection. ”
