Telex was the  latest technology once, which was an upgradation of the telegraph services, thus sending messages speedier and with better results from the Morse telegrams. It was introduced in India also after the same was introduced in foreign countries. The International Telex Service was started in India on 16th May 1960 by sending the first message between India and Britain.

Within six decades, both the telegram and telex services have already made way for the next generation of data services. Not only messages, but photos, images and all kind of data are now being sent by the mobile phones using various technologies.

It will not be surprising, if the new generation may not understand what was’Telegram’, ‘Telex’ etc. However, the old generation have the nostalgic memories of receiving telex, telegram etc. conveying happy news or some times tragic news.
