Disappointment of Philatelists of Udaipur

\"\"By Anil Kr Pujara

India Post had decided to release a commamorative stamp on Sh D S Kothari an eminent scientist of Udaipur on 6th July. He was a jewel from Udaipur Rajasthamn. Since he belonged to Udaipur, where there is a Philatelic Bureau also, it evoked a special interest in the fraternity of philatelists across the country. On the scheduled date a big no of philatelists n dealers gathered at Udaipur to have the date n place cancellation.Those who could not make it to the bureau, they had sent the emos placing their requests to have their rquirements from the bureau. India post as usual dispatched the material without noticing that it is rainy season n Rain God has no special consideration for India Post.The first Day covers which reached Udaipur Bureau was totally watersoaked. Information Sheets could not make it to the bureau till the due date. Even the catchet was not made ready on the due date. It daunted the spirit of philately n disappointed the philatelists in general who took all the pains to have the fdcs n max cards prepared to get them cancelled on theĀ  due date. Can ever India Post with new rules of the game come up to the expectations of common Phialatelists?

    New Issue Day: For a stamplover going to the Post-Office is
    the all important & much awaited act on this D-Day. The disappointment on not getting the New Toy right is so disheartening & very very cruel indeed. Sadly, for IndiaPost it is just like
    any other day.
