The Tale Of Tinkle's Travels
Succumbing to a whim, I ordered the entire collection of Tinkle Digests on-line from Amar Chitra Katha's website (all 146 of them). Everyone in the family enjoys this somewhat silly children's mag, which might provide a clue about my household's average mental age!
146 Tinkle Digests - at one a day, it will take us 5 months to go through the lot
There was no separate shipping cost, and I was amazed at how quickly the goods were delivered. The parcel was delivered by courier (DHL), and I was given a reference number and a website to track the progress of the shipment. I placed the order on the 15th of October, the parcel was dispatched from Mumbai on the 16th, and I received the lot on the morning of the 21st.
This is the tale of Tinkle's travels, via Bangkok and Singapore.
Pretty impressive - both the delivery time and the trackability
