Subbu, stay safe and keep healthy.

 

My pen can wait :-)

Haven't commented on this for a while.  Seems my pen is stuck due to the lockdown on shipping in India.  I did comment before that pens from Mr. Subbu can be subject to some nail biting time which is only worse with the pandemic.  He has sent emails about the status which is all he can do.  I do appreciate his efforts and I know it can't be easy.  I'm just waiting for a pen but he has his whole livelihood involved.  I truly hope that things get better for everyone in this situation, craftsmen and shop owners and their families.

I received a message from Mr. Subramaniam on April 16th, saying that my pens were ready, but that there was a lockdown in India until May 5th. He promised to get back to me after then,

 

I assume the lockdown is still on, but at least it is clear that Mr. Subramaniam is on top of this.

From another thread I see many Ranga pens are sent, but now locked down at the postal depot and won't exit India till the lockdown is over.

 

This is more than the usual nail biting, for sure. And I hope India will be okay in these tough times. Kerala already got covid19 on the run according to one of my friends there so let's hope Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and the other states can follow suit!

I have heard from Mr. Subramaniam today, and he tells me that the lockdown in India is on until at least May 31. He hopes that the post will reopen after that for nonessential items. Let's cross our fingers! 

 

He does say that he and his family are doing well.

Really glad to hear that news Schulste - I mean the important news that Mr Subramaniam is fine. Less glad to hear lockdown continues, but if it keeps people safe, that's the main thing!
