Namstey from India, Anyone wanna be my PenPal :)
« on: January 16, 2017, 11:52:10 PM »
Good morning :)

My Name is Aman and I am from India. I am looking for Pen Pals. Writing letters is a lost tradition these days , and emailing over computer is not the same as the letters, the same way one is love to read an actual hard book, rather then reading  it on a Kindle.

I am looking for Pen pals, to share Calligraphy ( I do Italic, Hindi, Devnagari and Punjabi). And also love to share experience over letters, I am not just looking for Pen Pals, I am looking for a good friends too across the world.

I don't have any single Pen Pal yet , but , I do believe that I will have few good ones soon.

Kindly PM me or Let me know if you are interested.
You can see my work here : https://www.instagram.com/the.sardaarji/

Thanks in Advance.

With Best wishes.
Regards
Aman

Hi Aman, 
I too, am new to the Forum and would be pleased to be your penpal. Also, you, Mary Jane, if you like. Would you be interested in a Round Robin (the letter is passed amongst us, from one to the other and added to by each)?  If not, that is ok!  I will be busy the first part of the year, through the end of May, helping prepare for the wedding of my son, but would like to make time to write!  I am in the Houston, Texas area.  My nephew-in-law is from India (Punjabi) and I have a good friend in the Paris area.

Yours,  Patty

Hello @Foxmorepatty & @The.SardaarJi,
I have been away over the Christmas holidays and have just found your posts. The idea of a Round Robin appeals to me! Who is going to start? Have the 2 of you exchanged addresses? Let me know ...

Great! Could you forward it to Mary Jane once it arrives?  She would like to do a Round Robin exchange with us.  I have not thought it through, but a first idea is you forward it to her, with your reply, and then she forward that to me, with her reply.  I guess then I would send her letter and a new letter from me to you?  I will do a little research.  My mother-in-law had a Round Robin for many years, and maybe even still does!  Namstey!  Does that sound okay to both you and Mary Jane as a start?

Just found this during my research.  I think this is my MILís Round Robin!

Hello again @Foxmorepatty & @The.SardaarJi,
I just read the article that Patty put in her last reply - that sounds so great (it makes me want to contact old friends and submit the idea to them!).
So, once Aman has received your letter, and has added his letter to to Patty's, he will send both of them to me. And I will then add my "2 cents worth" to the bundle and send it all to Patty.
Have I got it right?

This sounds fun! Would it be too much for me to jump in?

Exactly!  And then I remove mine and add a new one, and so on and so on with everyone!

Sounds good to me, Vickie.  Where are you?  Assuming Mary Jane and Aman agree, could you PM your address to us.  I think Mary Jane would send to you, and then you me.  We do need to keep an eye on the International Mail charges, but it should not be too bad at this point.
