Combo Cover :Roerich and Devika Rani

\"\"By Anurag Vajpeyi

Roerich heritage has a very special meaning for both India and Russia. Nikolai Roerich was an intellectual giant of his age and a multifaceted personality. He was a great painter, philosopher, writer, educationist and thinker. His inner urge led him to embark on his celebrated Central Asian expedition of 1920s and finally it was India, in the surroundings of Kullu where he chose to live. Svyatoslav Roerich, his son, followed in the footsteps of his father and was a genius in his own right, and a world-renowned painter. Married to screen idol Devika Rani, the couple were famous and much adored in India. The Roerich family’s heritage is a great symbol of friendship between peoples of India and Russia.
International Roerich Memorial Trust. The Trust is doing great work in propagating the memory of the Roerichs and furthering their works. Both India and Russia attach great importance to the work of the Trust and we hope to impart renewed vigour to its activities.

    Dear Anurag Vajpeyi,
    It is nice management of Devika Rani cancellation over the F.D.C. of Roerich. A combination of India & Russia , a painter & a film actress perhaps Devika Rani was nice of Rabindra Nath Tagore.This is called Philately, a sense of own creation.
