The postman is a common but useful public servant. Whatever the weather may be he is always on duty. He delivers letters, registries, parcels and money orders. He goes from door to door. Sometimes he comes on his bicycle and sometimes on foot. He is eagerly awaited by one and all.
The postman wears a khaki uniform. He carries the dak in a leather bag. He goes to the office at 9 a.m. to collect the dak of his area. He sorts out the articles of dak and arranges them in order. Then he sets out to deliver them. He goes from street to street and door to door. He has to cover a long distance. When he is on his beat, he does not take any rest on the way.
The postman had no holidays in the past. He had to be on duty on Sunday and on festival days. But now he has a holiday on Sunday. In addition, he has holidays on some festivals also. His income was very small. But now the government is trying to improve his lot. He now gets a better pay scale. He is paid bonus also.
Some postmen do not perform their duty sincerely. They do not deliver letters properly. They hand over the letters to small children. Instead of putting them in letter boxes, they throw them under the doors.
Many important letters are lost. They should stop doing so. They should try to be helpful and useful public servants.
