Combination Cover:Umrao Kunwar Ji \”Archna\”

By Sudhir Jain

On 23rd August 2008, a special cover was issued at Kishangarh (Rajsthan) on Sthanakwasi Jain Sadhwi Mahasati Umrao Kunwar Ji Archana. Recently on 30th April 2011, Indian Postal Department has issued a stamp on the same Sadhwi Mahasati Umrao Kunwar Ji Archana. I have prepared a combination cover on the special cover on Kishangarh with the stamp and first day cancellation of Ajmer where this stamp was released.\"\"

  1. Vijay Kumar Jain says:

    Malicious act of officials of Rajasthan Postal Circle.
    Sadhvi Umrao kunwar Archana ji passed on to heavenly abode on 22 april 2009.
    Releasing a special cover on sadhvi ji on 23 August 2008 (when a person is alive) is a clear cut contravention of rules.
    However obtaining two cancellations on a cover is a good effort.
