From the Desk of Naresh Agarwal
 A matter seldom fires up when a few philatelists of higher stature sit together and discussabout the recognition they have got. It is seen that the awards which are received byphilatelists at any National or International Level give pleasure and importance to them only asthose medallions or awards either remain in lockers or deep back on the show cases and areseldom seen and appreciated by the viewers. Those awards are never brought in to light byany other agency not even Department of Posts which has an established philatelic wing andspends huge amount on promotion of philately, so to say. Even at Circle level where CPMG or 
Director level office bearers sit, don’t keep record of it what to say display of names and
pictures of such eminent philatelists from their own circle. One of my friends told me that hehad made a beautiful showcase on one of the walls of his hobby room for placement of hisprizes, awards and medals. Nice to know that he is the sole viewer and the one to appreciatehis own achievements. Pleasure not shared. The question is what exact recognition one haseven if he gets medals/awards at any International Show.
Let’s view it in a different way. Cricket is a game or a sport of throwing and hitting ball, Hockey
is a game of dribbling and hitting ball, Badminton is a game hitting shuttle cock with racket,
dancing is an art form… and so on…… if all these are so highly appreciated world over by thepeople, by the govts. … then what’s that there is not in philately? Does it not require
time,vision, search and research, application, thinking and above all it is highly educational. Itshould also be given a recognition as the other sports and games are given. If not individualsor institutions, at least govt. should appreciate the medal winners at different levelappropriately and also those who are involved in promotional activities of philately.It is fact that high officials of Govt., deptt. of post just ignore the philatelists of National or International repute. These philatelists are only used when it comes to organizing any
exhibition. That’s all. What to talk of honoring them, they are not even invited in various local
philatelic or postal functions. This is a serious matter and needs a serious concern andconsideration. What is the stature of philately and so the philatelists? What exact honor isgiven to the philatelists?In lots of fields people have been honored for their achievements. They have been bestowedbest of the civilian awards by the government. Philately is no less than those many sports. Thecollection and display rules set are as stringent as for any other game or art form. Any way the
major points which come out of the above discussion…
one is the recognition to philately andother is recognition of philatelists. I feel govt. and administration in India has failed in doing soin all respects.If such is the case.. Why a philatelic wing by Deptt. of Post? why so much of Infrastructure byformation of Bureau and counters?. Why amount in crores of rupees is spent every year?
