Firstly, I would like to describe or define what is a social media,many of them may be know that,but I would just like to mention that. WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA? Social Media is a platform,computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas,thoughts and information through the building of virtual networks and communities.  Social media originated as a way to interact with friends and family but was later adopted by businesses that wanted to take advantage of a popular new communication method to reach out to customers.

Kashmir being the part of Mughal empire till 1571  then Afgan Durrani empire then sikh annexed kashmir later on it came into power of British. Srinagar, the largest city and summer capital of kashmir  with Jhelum,Indus,Dal and  Ancher lakes. on the waters of srinagar -Dal lake  floats a boat.

It is not only an active post office that is not only visited by locals for posting letters but also a tourist spot, attended by tourists in large number. Services available here are  international telephone calls and internet facility.

 It also contain a musuem that contains various collection of unique stamps and fascinating history .There is also available a souvenir shop from which you can buy stamps and postcards, greeting cards and local items. The postage stamps here bear the pictures of  the beautiful Dal Lake and have stamps of man rowing a shakira. There is a board which says "Floating post office ,Dal Lake".

Being one of architecture,it became one of the most eye attractive tourist itinerary .one who have not visited won't believe that  million of travellers  come to this post office by boat ride to sent their letters to loved ones and the stamp art work is a tribute.

If there can be a floating mosque, floating market then there is nothing to shock regarding floating post office. It is located in Srinagar ,one of the most beautiful city in kashmir.

   Planning Visitors of kashmir, must visit this  architectual place  as it is only wooden  floating  post office in India,a wonderful creation.

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty.

To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
