RawalpindiSmall countries like Bhutan, Laos and Thailand earn billions of dollars in foreign exchange by issuing beautiful stamps on worldwide topics.Our neighboring country India issues stamps on Mahatama Gandhi at regular intervals, thus making him the most popular man on the Internet and amongst those whose hobby is collecting stamps.
In Pakistan, however, it is the opposite. Our post office seems to be issuing stamps which have no international attraction for collectors.A recent example is the issuance of a stamp with the picture of the Karachi Gymkhana Club.
Pakistan is facing the worst epidemic threat of dengue fever and is looking towards world donors for financial assistance to help flood-affected people in Sindh.I would like to request the authorities at the helm of affairs at the Pakistan Post Office to issue stamps on dengue fever and on the flood situation in Sindh.The stamp on dengue can become an international stamp on a medical theme and Pakistan can earn billions of dollars of foreign exchange that can also be used for rehabilitation of flood-affected people. Stamps must be issued in a minimum quantity of 10 million so that it can reach every corner of the world.(Source-Dawn.com)
