Class 7 English Grammar Chapter 21 Message Writing. The telephone is an instant means of communication. It is a two way traffic. But sometimes the caller is not able to convey the message to the person concerned, as the latter is not available at that moment. So the person receiving the call writes it down to be passed on to the person for whom the message is meant. This is for the sake of accuracy.

In Chapter 21 of Class 7 English Grammar, students delve into the art of Message Writing, primarily stemming from telephonic communications. Telephones, serving as instantaneous communication bridges, enable two-way interactions. However, there are instances when the intended recipient isn’t available to directly receive the call. In such scenarios, the intermediary, or the person answering the call, plays a pivotal role. They jot down the conveyed information, ensuring it reaches the intended party later.
