Dear friends, in my journey to collect Special Cover released by India Post to commemorate 25years of Speed Post in India, I had skipped the cancellations of State of Rajasthan. It was done not for the reason that I had not received the cancellations from Bureaus of Rajasthan but for the reason that that there was story behind each on cancellation of 4 Bureaus of Rajasthan. Let me start from Jaipur, the cancellation is not properly done, untidy hands had been used, visual effect of the cover reflects clearly the casual attitude of Bureau officials in handling the cover n cancellation. Though the staff at Bureau at Jaipur had been changed twice since Indepex-2011 but there appears to be no remarkable change in the quality of attitude of staff. Except cunningness, arrogance still prevails. This is not my opinion but of many fellow collectors from Jaipur n around. This is unimaginable from a place like Jaipur which occupies prominent place in the field of Philately not only in India but in International field also equally.
In comparison to Jaipur, Jodhpur cancellation is far far better. The worst case was of Ajmer. My money was returned by the Bureau staff on the plea that outside Rajasthan, no supply will be made n it is not the duty of Bureau to entertain mail orders. I was forced to take the help of one fellow collector from Ajmer who collected the cancellation on my behalf from Ajmer Bureau and then helped me in completing my collection.
