Recently I came to know that Chief Master Genaral Odisha Circle Bubneshwar issued a set of 8 booklets. The booklets are issued on various themes namely (1) Vibrant india (2) Children Day (3) India-UN Women He for She (4)Zoological Survey of India, (5) International Fleet Review, (6)India-Singapore Joint Issue,(7) Samrat Ashok, (8) Charkha. I really wonder whether anyone in India Post really knows the meaning, format n purpose of issuing Booklet. To the best of my knowledge n belief though I dont claim to be an authority on the subject and would like to share little knowledge that I could acquire n gather on the subject, a booklet should have one or more stamp, should have detailed not vey exhaustive but still really sufficient information on the subject of stamp/stamps n folder to ensure safe upkeep n easy carrying of the same. With this background, I would like to say very few booklets issued by India Post qualify to be rightly categorized as Booklet-a philatelic material. However my issue is involved is not this in this topic at this juncture. I want to bring it to the notice of all how desperate our India Post is in finishing this Hobby the so called Hobby of Kings n King of Hobbies. I sent the money to get one set of 8 booklets n what I got was empty folders with the clarifications that since on most of the subjects, stamps are not available in stock, hence these blank folders are being sent which are otherwise finished in stock. I was advised to arrange the relevant stamps from other bureaus at my own. When enquired, I was informed that out of 8 topics on which so called booklets were issued, no one was supplied any stamp on 4 topics. Only 4 types of booklets were supplied with stamps on the subject. I really wonder India Post is doing justice to the hobby. Has any one ever in India Post really gone deep into the subject of Booklet n seen the booklet issued by Other Countries?
