Philatelic Census:Philamirror Launches New Initiative

Who is a Philatelist?

\"\"People define it in many ways and you will find several individual versions. In our opinion a person who has more than two stamps with him and have a desire to add a third one in his portfolio is a philatelist. This person could be of any age, gender, and nationality.

And how many people with such desire would there be on this earth?

There must be Millions, for sure.

How many philatelists are there in the country?

Exactly no idea as there never happened a philatelic census in the country.

How many philatelists do you know in the country and abroad?

Not all of them but may be fifty or a hundred presumably. You could be one among the best networkers and could know a few hundred philatelists but sure there are not many philatelists like you. Knowing a few philatelists across the country will never make you a known identity in the community of philatelists.

When we analyzed the visitor demographics on the Philamirror we observed that there are  thousands of philatelists who visit the site on regular or periodic basis. But majority of them, we do not know personally. You as a regular visitor of the philamirror also know nothing about those thousands of fellow philatelists as well.

What are the Estimates?

We have come across various speculations and estimates regarding the number of philatelists in the country. Some of the philatelists estimate that there would be around 2.5 lakh active philatelists in the country. This is an estimate only. There has never been a sincere effort to reach up to a near to actual estimate in past.

It’s a Good Reason to Launch Philatelic Census

Philamirror now has decided to take the initiative of launching the first ever “Philatelic Census”. Obviously we bank upon your active role in the task. The philatelic census begins today itself.\"\"What You Need To Do?

All you need to do is really really simple. You just need to provide specific information and details about yourself and send it to us through an email. It will not take more than a couple of minutes of your busy life and just a second to press the “SEND” button of the email.

We know that many philatelists would not know about this philatelic census as not many of them are internet friendly and may not be knowing about the existence of Philamirror at all. And we do not rule out a few lazy fellows as well..lol…!!!!

You could fill up the vacuum in such case. You can easily send the information of all  philatelists you know anywhere across the country. We specifically understand the plight of philatelists located in smaller towns and rural areas of the country.

Here is the requisite information that you need to send to us about yourself and other fellow philatelists;

1. Name ( in full)

2. Complete Postal Address

3. Phone Number(s)- Office/residence/mobile

4. Email Address and Website (if any)

5.  Age in Years

6. Sex (M/F)

7. Your Philatelic Interests (in very brief, preferably not more than 50 words)

SEND To The Email- admin@philamirror.info

The philatelic census is not just limited to India. We welcome all philatelists across the globe. If you are a philatelist and if you know even one more philatelist fellow then you must feel yourself responsible enough to send in the details.

What Philamirror Will Do For You?

We at philamirror have checked out a holistic plan to use the philatelists’ information for everyone’s advantage. We will proceed further in well-defined steps as under;

STEP-01 : We believe that we are going to receive thunderous response and say within a week or a fortnight we will start uploading all philatelists’ information online.

STEP-02 : We are creating and adding specific pages here on this site( i.e. philamirror.info )  itself so that you can watch all the data yourself as we keep them updating. We have planned to classify your information as “COUNTRY-STATE-DISTRICT/PROVINCE-CITY/TOWN/PLACE “. We trust that you can easily locate yourself as well as other fellow philatelists anytime anywhere.

STEP-03 :  Once we get enough data out of the philatelic census we will also shape it out as an eBook and will offer this eBook for all the philatelists free of cost to download for all further purposes. We will keep updating this free eBook from time to time for your
benefits.

    Wishing Philatelic Census all the success.
    But the challenge is to find ways to make philately popular
    among 10+ and 20 plus citizens. I have not received a
    hand-written letter in the last 10 years.
    (Personally, I typewrite the address on the cover while
    using a fountain pen to write the letter)

    • Dinu says:

      Dear Sir,

      Until now , as I have my root in a remote village and stay approx 1900 km away in a metropolis, do still now having the old habbit of writing a letter very often to my near and dear one.

      In case if you wish can give me your address and I shall be happy to scribble down and send something your way. (No pun, No taunt , no insult intended to your feeling about handwritten letter as I feel the pleasure of reading a book and reading a letter cannot be replaced by anything for me – though I happen to write almost 70 – 80 emails per day but email lacks the feeling of touch – I mean when my mother writes me a letter that was personally touched by her)

      Best regards
      Dinu

  17. RADHA KRISHNA MISHRA says:

    Lord Krishna & JainismThe most exalted figures in Jainism are the twenty-four Tirthankaras. Krishna, when he was incorporated into the Jain list of heroic figures presented a problem with his activities which are not pacifist or non-violent. The concept of Baladeva, Vasudeva and Prati-Vasudeva was used to solve it. The Jain list of sixty-three Shalakapurshas or notable figures includes amongst others, the twenty-four Tirthankaras and nine sets of this triad. One of these triads is Krishna as the Vasudeva, Balarama as the Baladeva and Jarasandha as the Prati-Vasudeva. He was a cousin of the twenty-second Tirthankara, Neminatha. The stories of these triads can be found in the Harivamsha of Jinasena (not be confused with its namesake, the addendum to Mahābhārata) and the Trishashti-shalakapurusha-charita of Hemachandra In each age of the Jain cyclic time is born a Vasudeva with an elder brother termed the Baladeva. The villain is the Prati-vasudeva. Baladeva is the upholder of the Jain principle of non-violence. However, Vasudeva has to forsake this principle to kill the Prati-Vasudeva and save the world. The Vasudeva then descends to hell as a punishment for this violent act. Having undergone the punishment he is then reborn as a Tirthankara PHILAMIRROR-while working on my two frames on Krishnawatar, I find this text which may be the subject related to your interests and sect.
