Super Postman Sri Basappa


1907 - 08, a time when letters were the only mode of communication and postman was a harbinger. Sri Basappa, postman in Mysuru Post office was not only a harbinger to Mysoreans, but also epitome of punctuality and sincerity. Neither Scorching heat of summer nor downpour in monsoon stopped him from fulfilling his duties.

He turned the monotonous job of delivering letters into an enterprising one by vivacious conversations at every doorstep and was popular among kids as “Post Mama”. The then king, his highness Sri Krishnaraja Wodeyar immensely praised his work and instructed to install his statue as a token of appreciation.
