About Sumantha...

Hi! I'm Sumantha - I'm in my late 20's and I work full time as a water resources engineer. I love Postcrossing and, postcard-wise, I'm open to anything and everything.

As far as my "wishlist" goes, it's just a list of suggestions if you're not sure what to send. When it comes down to it, the postcard is more about the message than the image for me. I want to see the world through someone else's eyes. Thus, I prefer my postcards to be written on - as much as one can fit on a postcard. And if you don't like writing on postcards or don't know what to say, you can write that too (and perhaps why). (Also, please date the postcard when you write it.)

You can check my "favorites" for some of the "nice-to-haves", and my wishlist also consists of:
-Images of dance
-Animals (Pandas, cats, and peacocks, mostly, but if it's cute, I like it)
-Other assorted wildlife
-Beautiful landscapes
-Trees, flowers (especially jasmine and lotuses), and other assorted flora
-Bridges, Lighthouses, Docks/piers, and any other engineering marvels
-Map postcards
-Country and state flags
-Local academic institutions (ex. colleges and universities)
-Local concert halls/sports stadiums/arenas/
-National and State Parks, Forests, Biosphere Reserves, Historical parks, Monuments, etc.
-"Did you know?" cards
-Traditional cultural non-extant creatures (dragons, leprechauns, Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch, the Yeti, unicorns, centaurs, etc.)
-Good luck symbols (ex., rabbits foot, 4-leaf clovers, bamboo, elephants with their trunks up, etc.)
-Astrological symbols (I'm a crab born in the Chinese year of the tiger, if it matters at all.)
-Cricket (or any sport really), stadiums
-Humorous cards (including salacious/suggestive/dirty ones)
-Baked goods (cupcakes and cookies mostly, but anything that looks delicious)
-Anything positive and uplifting
-Some other aspect of your culture that you'd wish to share

Oh, and if you happen to be local, don't hesitate to send me a local card. I will admit I have a collection of local cards, but I feel wasteful hoarding blank cards. Something written and stamped would feel FAR more meaningful - and my blank card can go (written and stamped) to someone else who would appreciate it.

Also - I register postcards as soon as I receive them, so if something seems to be taking longer than it should, let me know.

And as a public service announcement, if you know you are going on vacation for a prolonged period of time and will be unable to register postcards or are finding yourself losing interest, as a courtesy to all other PostCrossers, please set your account as "inactive" -

Thank you and Happy Postcrossing!
