May 2012 issue of Rainbow Stamp News is on your screen now. Four years have passed, IndiaPost has not organized National Philatelic Exhibition so far and philatelists all over the countryare waiting for the next National Exhibition. It is expected to be held in Hyderabad in November this year but the official announcement about the same by India Post is still awaited.
Let’s hope that India Post would soon announce the ve
nue and dates of the exhibition.
In the last few years we have not seen any strong National Philatelic Federation emerging in our country. So it is high time for the whole philatelic community to join hands and make strongefforts to revive Philatelic Congress of India which was once the controlling authority of philatelic activities in India. The PCI must hold an immediate election and new upcoming youngand energetic philatelists should also be introduced in its working / executive committee toenthuse new blood and brains for its smooth and active functioning. If opportunity is given tonew and youthful philatelists, certainly PCI will be back on its track as it will be strengthened and smoothened.Some of the National Commissioners appointed for the International Philatelic Exhibitions arenot doing their duty well. No need to mention specific name here but recently the participants of an International Exhibition have not received their exhibits and medals even after the lapse sixand a half months of the exhibition. They have also not been properly communicated by thecommissioner about the cause of delay in delivering the exhibits and medals and further havebeen behaved irrationally . This is a matter of great concern which is to be taken seriously bywhole philatelic community and senior members of governing council of PCI who nominatecommissioners for International Philatelic exhibitions. This certainly is highly detrimental for the development of philately.
This is all for this month….More in Next Issue…Happy Collecting !!
