India:Growing Demand for Stamp on Cricket Victory

By Dr.Pradeep Jain

\"\"On 2nd April in Wankhede stadium when Indian team wrote a new page in the history every state and every cricket lover has congratulated them with different ways.Everybody wanted to felicitate these young stars of India.But if India post wants to create everlasting memories of these great event they should immediately announce the release of a stamp for this important moment.As it is well known fact that India post is having 98 personalities under consideration to issue a stamp whom not a million people know.So this will be a good idea to release a colorful miniature sheet for billion fans of this game.As this event was organised in Indian subcontinent and we won it in our own country,it becomes more important.The idea of a miniature sheet with a photograph of winning team with
the trophy in hands forming the centre part as a stamp.In 1971 and 1996 also stamps were issued on cricket victories..As our neighboring country Bangaladesh has alreadt issued a set of four stamps on this event.Hope that India post officials will try to attach with the emotions of lot of cricket fans of  India and abroad.\"\"

    Philatelists in India should start campaign to issue stamps and MS on this glorious occasion in Indian sports history. we must write a postcard or send requests to the ministry.
    Mr Sachin Pilot is available at face book so let us write about our feelings on his wall.

    it is high time india post understands the consept of philately and its importance with result of the world cup being won by india.
    As in other countries they should already have been working on the designs keeping in view that if India won the cup a stamp should have been released within days .

    it is time the officers at the helm understand their responsibility and get going

    Considering the popularityof game and the achievement of winning World Cup, a move should start forcing the India Post to consider release of Stamps n Sheetlet to commamorate the event.


    I have suggestion to make. Issue at lease 2 stamps. One showing the
    beautiful Cricket World Cup Trophy & another- a vertically oriented
    bigger stamp with a cricket bat signed by the winning squad including or excluding coach.
    Also, I would request readers of philamirror to make their suggestions
    regarding stamps to be issued!
