Philatelic literature of several kinds is created and most of it is by the philatelists themselves. Every year umpteen publications surface out with one or other kind of portfolios in prime focus. Philatelists by and large love most of such publications. But the \”Year Book\” always stands out with a very special importance in philately.

    Mr. Anurag rightly points out: “Philatelic literature of several kinds is created and most of it is by the philatelists themselves.” With this in view, the review provides a window to collectors either to peep into or out of the world of philately, benefit and never be a loser.
    Well done Mr. Anurag.

    Really it is worth reading and worth collecting book.
    Congratulations to Mr. Madan Midda.


    Given the rough handling of mail at India Post and the watery-black
    ink that creates a smudge & puddle on the postcards, envelopes, inland etc., where is the scope for USING a shiny, little Maxim Card just so say Hai,Hello, Pranam etc.
    I have seen youngsters buying gigantic Greeting Cards by dozens
    & then taking the services of a nice courier .
    In my opinion philately is about day-to-day use too & not just about
    investing & collecting. To promote philately IndiaPost has to find
    ways to attract the young ones to a Post-Office first!
