    A great theme #PanchamDa !!
    Sir, why you left out of this philatelic team, the great #KishoreDa ? (#StampsofIndia2003 – #GoldenVoicesOfYesteryears).
    For #HindiMusic lovers Pancham Da + Kishore Da jodi would be matchless till the End.
    Also would like to salute the Great Rishi #BankimChandraChattopadhyay, as today is his Birth Anniversary. #VandeMataram.

      Sandeep ji,
      Kishore da stamp was released in 2003 and it is improbable to obtain cancellation of the stamp with RD BURMAN stamp.
      However I did mention Kishore Kumar in my article.
