During every festival, I send e-greetings to near and dear. Not even half the people reply back or even acknowledge receipt of the e-card. Some people have genuine reasons for not doing so and I accept that but not everyone and not always. When the recipient has viewed the card, I get the message " Recipient has viewed your card" which is proof that my card has found its way to the inbox of the receiver and that he/she has viewed it. But very few people bother to reply back. I send e-cards as I sincerely remembered you and wanted to wish you and say hi and see what I get back. It hardly takes a minute to click the reply button and just say Thanks. Some very nice people have even retorted back saying " so, now only you remembered me, where are u?!". Excuse me, I am the one who has tried to get in touch and you shamelessly ask me this? Some very very nice people say." Which mail/card.. I did not receive any from you".
I have proof that the card has been sent and you say this to me? Well, the world is such a wonderful place with such nice people that I feel I am a misfit here. I know people will ask me why do I send cards if I am unhappy about non-acknowledgement of cards. That's me for you, to tell you that I remember you and want to wish you for a festive occasion (whether you like it or not). So what if people do not acknowledge receipt, atleast I get to know that my card has been viewed. What say?
