Some of the expressions are spontaneous, natural. The chirping of the birds, the prattle of a kid, the expression of love…for time immemorial they have remained the same, followed the same pattern, the same nuances, made the same impact here, there, all over the world.

It all changed in 1792, a French engineer, Claude Chappe built the first visual telegraphy system between Paris and Lille, followed by a line from Strausbourg to Paris. A century later the conventional telephone came into being as an invention of Alexander Graham Bell. In India, telecommunication has crossed phenomenal 150 years , since.
