\"ali\"allauddinBy Sudhir Jain

On 3rd Sept. 2014, India Post is going to issue a set of stamps on great Indian Musicians. One of them is Ustad Ali Akabar Khan, famous Sarod player of Maihar Gharana. He was son of great Indian Classic musician Ustad Alauddin Khan. A stamp was issued on Ustad Alauddin Khan on 19th Oct. 1999. Much before that, on 31st Jan. 1976, a special cover was issued on Ustad Alauddin Khan at Satna (M.P.) during an Philatelic Exhibition. This cover was released by his son Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. I was instrumental in release of this special cover as I was Secretary of the Central India Philatelic Society, who had organised the exhibition.I am exhibiting that special cover with the autograph of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. I am also exhibiting a photo in which Ustad Ali Akbar Khan is signing the special cover.
