India is one of a few countries that still celebrate national events with philatelic commemorative stamps or that use paper technology for communication. Photographic postcards with philatelic postage stamps and a short message from the sender make for a happy mail day. Postcards and handwritten letters—paper ephemera—remain treasured memento mori. This work is rooted in feminist commentary and reflects ties to the greater world, old and new, ancestors and traditions.
