Greetings via SMS

It is not a new idea, but may be it is gaining ground - after Christmas cards are going away for SMS greetings, the Teacher's Day is bound to follow. The Malaysian New Straits Times runs an article offering the alternative to send an SMS to teachers for the upcoming teachers day on May 16.

It is not clear, however, who is expected to send the SMS. Pubils or parents? No problem with the parents, besides, may be, there motivation and the lack of handphone numbers of the respective teacher. Imagine, what can happen now: Are parents picking up the phone to call the school's administration office and inquire about the mobile number for their children's teacher?

Or is it that the pubils are expected to send the SMS? Why, when many schools don't even allow pubils to bring mobile phones to the school.

May be the Indian man who send 182,689 SMS in one month was hired to shoot off all those SMS?

Well, let's just say that this was an article that was included into the newspaper to fill some space, with no serious intention behind.
