Daring postman , unaware of further consequences. When we do something wrong we will get caught one day or the other and his is a good example

Though some postmasters are prompt in service because of people like Ashok all have take hear. When you are appointed with some duty you should consider it as a gift from God. One hardly gets Government post whatever its our ability that promotes us to a higher post.But Ashok will repent for his mistake.

Shame on that person being an Government employee he cannot behave so irresponsibility. Thai is why people have stopped using postal service because when such people are in service how can we expect a post to be delivered?
