 Dear Reader,
Here is September issue of Rainbow on your screen with articles on a variety of subjects. In this issue I discuss here the most burning issue of philatelic community today 
“ TheCommunication Gap between National Commissioner and Exhibitors” . Here is the latest instance for you to review…..
Just wish to know from my Indian Readers if they are participating in SHARJAH 2012 ??? There was no publicity or news about this exhibition anywhere. I came to know about this exhibition through Net surfing as I saw the website of SHARJAH 2012 I found the last date was already over still I sent an email to the commissioner to enquire if the entries could be sent after last date since the philatelic community was not informed anywhere about this exhibition but I received a return email from the national commissioner that the date was over. I discussed the matter with a few PCI office bearers and some senior philatelists who too agreed to the fact that the proper information and wide publicity should have been given well before the last date which probably was not given.Everyone who is eligible to participate in the exhibition should be given a chance to apply . Today sharing of information is no problem as the electronic media is very active and there are several popular sites and blogs which are updated every day with latest info. Then why some of the commissioners (Not all ) do not circulate the news to the philatelic community. It means that either it is negligence on the part of commissioner or it is all fixed whom to avoid and whom to give entry.It is high time for the concerned authorities to look into matter and take necessary action that in future proper publicity is given to the exhibition through popular websites and releasing a press note to the philatelic societies and editors of philatelic journals at least 20 days before the last date of submitting entry forms. So that exhibitors can send entry forms timely !! 
This is all for this month 
More in Next Issue…Happy 
Collecting !!

SHARJAH2012, 28
Asian International Stamp Exhibition to be held on 20-25 November 2012 at Sharjahis the one which was not known to most of the Indian Philatelists who were eligible aspirants andparticipants for the show. The reason being its least rather no publicity in any of the media or medium inIndia. The reason is either known to the organizers or to the PCI and its recruited honorable commissioner.
The unsatisfactory working of old aged commissioners, a few months ago was a burning issue and againanother ill functioning of either its commissioners or PCI itself has put PCI in to the spheres of questions.The news of SHARJAH 2012 was published in blog of Rainbow stamp club on 23.08.2012 informing Indianphilatelists about the exhibition. It was probably for the first time that the publicity of this show was done inIndia in any of the journal or in any way, so to say.
 After reading the news some of the philatelists including myself inquired about the show and showed their willingness to participatefrom the commissioner but no reply was given even on repeated mails. Even thesecretariat of organizers failed to respond. What does this mean? What is all this happening? The matter was also brought in to the notice of office bearers of PCI by one of those who just kept mum or tried toprotect the matter setting another example of poor and irresponsible working of PCI or its commissioner who does not have time to reply and where as it was his duty to see that maximum of Indian philatelists getchance to participate in the show.
Let’s review and try to understand the situation. Primarily is it PCI which should be questioned for all this or 
the commissioner should be asked about why the matter was not brought in to the notice of Indian philatelicfraternity and Indian philatelists in a proper way so that it reached maximum of the philatelists. I feel it isprimarily the duty of PCI to see that any exhibition is thoroughly and regularly publicized so that itsinformation reaches all the corners of India well in time. There are various modes of publicity such as pressrelease, e-magazines and journals, information to various philatelic societies, information through philatelicbureaus, information to the previous participants of National and International level (details of whom is
supposed to be with PCI), etc etc…
Now, if we think about commissioner’s action, it is felt and some questions come in
to mind such as :
a) Whether 
PCI has proper control over commissioner’s action apart from his selection?
 b) Whether PCI has given any proper guide lines to commissioner 
in this respect
or maybe the
commissioner is free to accept any guide line, if given to him?
c) Whether commissioner has been authorized to contact only those philatelists whom he
wishes to…?
 d) Whether out of all the eligible exhibits, the c
ommissioner is free to select any one’s
exhibit whom he wishes to. This means either he
is competent to judge (or have prior information) which exhibit is suitable for particular exhibition. But one must appreciatethat the commissioner should have whole information about all eligible philatelists in thecountry ?
e) We understand and wish that the commissioner should represent his country with asmuch exhibits as possible because that will give maximum philatelists opportunity toparticipate but it appears that who, whom, how and how many are
all at the will
