India Post will Release Stamp on Aditya Vikram Birla Today

\"adityaAditya Vikram Birla (14 November 1943 – 1 October 1995), was an  Indian industrialist. Born into one of the largest business families of India, Birla oversaw the diversification of his group into textiles, petrochemicals and telecommunications. He was one of the first Indian industrialists to expand abroad, setting up plants in South East Asia, Philippines and Egypt, among other places. His unexpected death at the age of 52 left his young son   in charge of his group of companies   and also much doubt about whether it would survive him. These doubts however proved unfounded as his company has enjoyed success and so has his legacy of philanthropic activities.

  2. Dinu says:

    One information for all

    Stamps printed 310,000
    Sheetlet (5 row x 3 column in each sheetlet) 100,000
    (out of these sheetlet 60,000 are for proponent)
    Looks great
    I feel sheetlet will vanish in short time…..

    Could only get the ‘darshan’ of this sheetlet owing to picture of same sent by my philatelist friend. Almost gave a deja vu effect of the Dhirubhai Ambani sheetlet of 2002. But this one has two borders.

    Just see the trend of sheetlets featuring a personality ‘exclusively’:

    1.Dhirubhai Ambani 2002 – business
    2.Madhubala 2008 – film
    3.Henning Holck-Larsen 2008 – business
    4.Swami Vivekanand 2012 – philosophy
    5.Aditya Vikram Birla 2012 – business

    Of course sheetlets of Arya Vaidyasala (P S Varier), Jnanpith Award (3 authors), Indo-Iran (Hafiz + Kabir) were also printed but the main theme of issue was different.

    Can we assume that sheetlets is the way of business class?


    Above all, A.V.Birla was a SCION of a very-2 influential business
    family(not mentioned in the article). Naturally very large &
    of course growing.

    Think of it, say some 70/80 years hence Indian Philately will
    sure have a theme, shall we call that Tata-Birla- bigger than any
    other theme including Gandhi, Heritage, Art etc. etc.

    Hope, Wild Life & Nature still remain on top by then.
