This show is an audio movie. It’s that rich with sights and sounds. And if you use your imagination, you’ll be transported to Mumbai, India. I talked with Bhumika Israni from there. Bhumika is a huge postcard enthusiast (find out what happened to her room), letter writer, and connector. And she’s a medical student who also collects stamps.
This is a show to treasure. And come join us at the Department of Lost Letters.

Now I know where all the mail end up… in the Department of lost letter.
Great show Bhumika and Frank!
Thank you. That is such a good story about the lost letters.
Wow! It was my first ever podcast about stamps and postcards and I loved it!
Going to start listening to all the other podcasts here on the postcardist.
Had just been to the place where the department of lost letters is before the pandemic forced a nationwide Lockdown. Only if I knew to look for it there!
But now I have a reason to visit the beautiful city again.
Thank you for listening to the show and for your nice compliments about Bhumika. Wouldn’t it be lovely to visit the Lost Letters?
