Centenary Celebrations of the Indian postal service

Sending letters is a thing of the past now..its been so long since I penned a letter or bought stamps to send it.Though many times I have tried to start a stamp collection, its never progressed, so was gladly surprised when I came to know that my husband has a stamp & coin collection. True to his hobby, he does not believe in buying old stamps, he thinks it needs to be collected through exchanges or friends..buying ready made collection is no fun for him. There are vintage shops in places like Ooty which sells old stamps/ coins etc.

Recently while browsing, I came to know that Indian Postal service would be completing 100 years this year and then I digged a little further to find some facts on Indian postage.. India Post will release a set of four commemorative stamps to mark the centenary, coinciding with a re-enactment of Pequet’s Allahabad flight and the launch of the Indipex World Philatelic Exhibition, at Pragati Maidan in Delhi.
