"The Postage stamp is a symbol of the Progress of
                                                     mankind and symbol of service. And apart from the daily
                                                     utility as a means of easy and cheap communication the
                                                     greater service it has done is that it acts as a bond of
                                                     unity and brotherhood between nations and people"
                                                                             
                                                                                                                    (Late) Pt Jawaharlal Nehru
