Dear Reader,
I am pleased to release February 2013 issue of Rainbow. It is a matter of pleasure that INPEX 2013 is being organized by The Philatelic Society of India. It will give once again a big platform to the philatelists all over India to meet and interact with each other. But at the same time the organizers have disappointed many eligible philatelists living in different parts of the country by 
not allotting them entry to participate in the exhibition without giving any specific reason. They have received a very vague and irrational response from the organizing committee that 
their entry is on hold.
It should be noted that we have less than one month time for the exhibition and this answer to the applicants is not only unreasonable but ridiculous too. As an applicant,one must get a clear reply at least 30 days before the exhibition in order to give final touch up to his or her exhibit. So what is the meaning of this doubtful status received by the applicants? Many eligible entries which have won high awards at several exhibitions after INPEX 2008 have been rejected by the organizing committee. The point should be considered that no official exhibition took place after INPEX 2008, Chennai. Only some All India Exhibitions were organized by the leading philatelic societies / organizations of the country namely Baroda Philatelic Society, SIPA and SINE by Stamps of India. The exhibits prepared in this gap of 5 years must be considered in INPEX 2013 which had been awarded in these exhibitions and some district and state level exhibitions.
Moreover there are some states like Himachal Pradesh and some States of the North East where no state level exhibitions have ever been held. So the philatelists of these states do not have the long list of awards to mention in their forms. If INPEX 2013 is considered to be as a National Philatelic Exhibition then, entries from these states must be considered on the basis of awards won at other exhibitions. As far possible, the philatelists of such states must be given privilege in the exhibitions to some extent.The question arises as to what is the purpose of such exhibitions? Is it to promote this wonderful hobby or to display again and again the same old collections which had already won many awards in the past and honour them with high awards once again? The point should be noted that in this way we shall never achieve the objective of promoting the hobby of philately through such exhibitions rather many new enthusiasts will get disheartened and leave this great hobby gradually.The present situation demands the new way of thinking and quick action in allotting 40 % frames to the new collections of new philatelists as well as noted philatelists who do not have the tag of long award list in their entry forms for new exhibits but have already won International awards for their other exhibits. I wish to draw the attention of all that state level exhibitions have not been held in many states for the last 5-6 years. Then how new entrants could tag them with state level awards??? 
It has been observed from discussion with some philatelists and the mails received from some readers that organizers are promoting PCI. As Philatelic Society of India is supposedly accepting entries from those applicants who are in one way or the other associated with the PCI. Anybody who is not associated with PCI will not be allowed to participate. The organizers are virtually compelling the exhibitors to become the member of PCI which is defunct national body. A very good move to increase membership, but at the cost of decision of acceptance or rejection of entries. This is absolutely not fair as some states like Himachal Pradesh has not any registered society. So the philatelists of this state are always ignored !! 
his is all for this month…More in next
issue…..…..Happy Collecting !!
