One Response to Ananda Nilayam to be on My Stamp

  1. Hemant Kulkarni USA says:

    To me, these type of stamps have no Philatelic value except for the satisfaction that one gets out of them. This is same as the way one can print his own stamps while paying a small premium to the printing company and the post office in the USA (private agreement between them) and show off pictures of your kids, pets, family celebrations etc that no one else really cares about and philatelic societies won’t even admit their displays in an exhibition. In other worlds, these kind of stamps are good only to cover the postage due but are better than those ‘SPECIAL COVERS’ that are so worthless in their cancelled form.
