In today’s world of smartphones and social media, it’s easy to forget the ways our parents sent and received their news. Before there were satellite dishes and calling cards, there was the aerogram. A small, light piece of paper purchased from the post office that was both stamped envelope and letter. Inside, our parents wrote their worlds and shared it with their relatives back home.
The Aerogram is a curated take on South Asian art, literature, life and news. Like its compact and foldable namesake, The Aerogram seeks to share personalized news, insights, opinions, and much more. Also like its namesake, this labor of love will take a little while to get to you. We hope you’ll find it worth the wait, and take a look inside when it arrives.
