    This post revives some nostalgic memories. Since telegrams could be
    booked through telephone, the telephone directory used to contain
    these codes, in 3 languages - English, Hindi, and local language -
    Malayalam in my case. However, the directory would be renewed
    annually; we had to return the old book, and a new directory wa issued
    in its place. So, the current directory does not contain these

    Here is a link which mentions those phrases - it is not official site

    As you described, what we had to do was give the address of the
    addressee, the "code" of the message to be delivered and type of
    delivery (greetings - which were delivered in speical covers, express
    delivery within a few hours - usually same day, and normal - delivery
    next day).
