Dear Reader
I am pleased to release February 2014 issue of Rainbow Stamp News. The month of February and March will have district and state level stamp exhibitions at different places and once again there will be lot of philatelic activities around the country.
These exhibitions play a great role in the promotion of philately if organized by the Deptt of Posts with the active involvement of the local philatelists. But it does not serve the purpose if organized as an official event of India Post. India Post should give enough publicity to the stamp exhibitions. Philatelic workshops and seminars should be organized during the exhibition with the help of local Philatelic Club. This will promote philately among people and the youngsters will be encouraged to take up philately as a hobby.
Best wishes to all the philatelists who are taking part in the exhibitions and a happy time to those visiting the forthcoming philatelic shows. Enjoy this issue with news from the world of stamps and special articles by distinguished authors. 
This is all for this month…More in next issue…
Happy Collecting !

We see inclusion of Modern Philately Class in Philakorea 2014 and Saudi 2014, the forthcoming International Philatelic exhibitions as we have also seen the same in the competitive class in recently concluded Brasiliana 2013 world Philatelic Stamp Exhibition held in Brazil in November 2013. It was well participated from all over the world and was highly appreciated too. Many Indian philatelists also participated in the exhibition with their exhibits in this class and won awards. Philately which has gone through different phases in the last one and a half century is normally looked upon as collection and study of classic and old philatelic material which involves and put before a good scope for search and research. Even the stalwarts of philately world over encouraged collection of early postal material and its studies. But it is the time now to look upon
philately in a different way. Let’s talk about India. In the last 14 years, say after 2000, India has
experimented a lot in stamp production, mail operations and its carriage. There has been introduction of various new and innovative methods of mail operations, processing, carriage and transport. India Post has introduced various mail services at different parts of India .Stamp printing technology and printed faces of stamps too have seen various innovations such as fragrant / scented stamps, Khadi stamp, Sheet-lets with different numbers of stamps, well designed miniature sheets, designer margins etc.. Looking in to increasing demand, the stamps are also being issued in increased quantity. In other parts of the world too, there has been innovations in mail carriage and nature, type and number of stamps being issued. There has been a good variety of subjects being covered now by the stamps unlike the classic period stamps which gives ample scope for collectors to choose subject covering interest of almost everyone. This modern phase of last one and a half decade of philately is said to have been defined by internet as internet has genuinely changed the whole scenario of accumulation of philatelic material, its collection and played a big role in shaping traditional philatelic sales to global philatelic trade. Further, the technological advancements as one can see have brought lots of changes and innovations in the postal operations, mail carriage, transmission and delivery. Email, e-post are the examples. One can see that in this modern phase say in the 21
 century so far, philately has became more creative and enjoyable with use of modern printing technologies and new materials to the postage stamps. Th
e issuance of “Unusual Stamps” or “Extra Ordinary Stamps” or “Designer Stamps” or “Exotic Stamps” or so to say ”Spectacular Stamps” have added glamour to the
hobby as such stamps are conceived to be appealing to all our senses with their creation with new and exotic materials, different attractive shapes and new innovative ideas. One can feel that philatelists or the stamp collectors now look forward for fresh and colorful images rather
