After completing collection of Special Cover to Commemorate 25 years of Speed Post up to MP, I now move to Gujarat. I am deliberately skipping Rajasthan which I shall cover/display soon. Gujarat occupies a prominent place in the field of Philately as many stalwarts of Indian Philately hail from Gujarat. With this background, I share with all that there are only three Philatelic Bureaus in the State of Gujarat i.e.Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Rajkot. The cancellation of Vadodara is VISUAL DELIGHT. I am yet to see this Big cancellation from any other Bureau of India Post. PTC(Postal Staff Training College ) a prestigious college of India Post is in Vadodara.
Eminent philatelists are from Vadodara, a renowned philatelic club is in Vadodara. With all this to talk about Vadodara, the type of cancellation prepared and provided by Vadodara Bureau is neither expected nor appreciated. The inscription of place i.e. Vadodara is so small n mention of pin code is also so small in size that that it makes size of cancellation n size of description of place n pin code a perfect MISMATCH.Dont you all agree with me. Is there no body in India Post to notice it n point out? Pl do give your opinion on my observations. Am I Wrong or Right?
