Philatelic world in general n Philatelic fraternity in Patna particularly suffered a jolt on account of sudden demise of Late R.K.Mishra. Ex employee was of State Bank of India who was very active n vibrant in the philatelic circle in Bihar n Jharkhand has left for his heavenly abode after a brief spell of sickness. I can recount my days in Panta n recollect how active he was in Stamp Expo2012. He was full of novel ideas n creativity n had a nack n niche for analytic approach towards each n every detail of philately. Besides being n innovative philatelist full of original ideas, he was a very kind hearted human being. He was always ready to help n guide new philatelists whom he will support n guide besides encouraging them. I cannot remember any exhibition complete without his active participation n support. The last exhibition which could see the light of day was recently concluded Philatelic Exhibition in Jamshedpur. Our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family n we all prey to Almight to allow his soul to rest in peace.Long Live Phila World n long live Late Mishra ji.
