Department Of Posts celebrated the 14th of November, with the issue of Special Postage Stamps on Children’s Day. Going by the tradition, Department of Posts has issued a set of four stamps on “Children’s Day” released by Ms. Radhika Doraiswamy today, during a formal function organized at its Pavilion in Pragati Maidan.
These Postage stamps show the wooden and mud toys such as the ones from Chennapatna, the dolls, tops of different hues and kites that colour their sky. The miniature sheet also pictures the little drag-cart which rattles happily with a stick on its stretched drum, dragged by a child.
This year the Children’s Day Special Postage Stamps celebrate return to innocence, the tenderness of nostalgia and also pays tribute to a heart full of compassion for those who have less than others.
These stamps and First Day Cover were designed by Sh. Sankha Samanta.
