We tempted to write this article after reading about Hanoi stamp market. We are happy to share with all our Philatellic Friends that during Indipex –2011, same type of market scene was witnessed outside the Venue of Exhibition. Big number of Vendors/Dealers/ Philatelists were seen exchanging/selling their extra stock to needy ones.It could easily satisfy the neeed of many n promote the philately in the true sense.The material put up for sale/exchange at this local market was not only cheap but very large variety was also put up n made available at one place.Business was brisk.Since no overhead was involved, it could quench the thirst of big no. of genuine collectors. Instead of meeting the demand of dealers, it could add to the collection of Collectors in a big way.It was adirect deal between the haves n have nots. Such like local markets should be encouraged and organized in a systematic manner. If it is not done, the philatelly will land into the lap of few mighty men are bent upon becoming PHILA MAFIA over night in the country and are in fact spreading their wings across the country cutting the barriers of language, culture etc.Recent example is disappearing of stamps of MadhuBala, Sai Baba,MS of Rathyatra, Krishnadevaraya, Stamps of World Tamil conferance,National Council Education n Dr Triguna Sen.How come these stamps disappeared from the Bureaus with the blink of an eye but were available with the dealers at double the rate in any quantity.Another example is Gandhi Khadi stamp Presentation Pack.Unsold stock was to be sent to all the bureaus for sale as it was reliable sources n more particularly from Philatellic Bureau Counter New Delhi.But now it is learnt that the whole stock is exhausted n this Presentation Pack will not be sent to any Bureau as it has already landed in the hands of few Mighty Men who are selling it at the cost of Rs 400/= in any no. They have found another life time opportunity to make their fortune.I for sure feel that either India Post improve their house or encourag such local markets where small time dealers despite facing all odds including the wrath of Police brave to cater to the nedd of common n genuine collectors n save him from the extortion.keep it up.
