    Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and Gandhiji both great personalities and their name is exploited everywhere so philately is not exception.So any event of these great persons life becomes a time of earning of our so called creative philatelist.The office bearers of Chhattisgarh phila association should explore this matter because in future it should not be repeated.If this type of fake items are sold in other countries then this will diminish the reliability of our philatelic material.
    This is duty of all of us to buycott this type of private, costly and moneymaking cindrella items which have no philatelic value

    A simple denial by the President of the Chattisgarh Philatelic Association does not bring an end to the matter.Infact it is the duty of all to bring the facts to the surface n real people should be exposed. Philatelic community deseres to know the real faces behind the game.After all it is their sentiments n their money which is at stake.More over it will put a check on such like activities to take place in future.
