Philately exhibition to showcase Indian heritage

Archaeological Survey of India marks its 150 years with celebrations including a stamp exhibition.


New Delhi. The Archaeological Survey of India has completed 150 years of its existence. To mark this achievement year-long celebrations would take place, including, an exhibition titled “Stamp of the past: Indian Heritage in Philately” in collaboration with Department of Posts. Contribution from some philatelists will also be mounted and inaugurated on the occasion of International Museum Day on 18th May, 2012 at Red Fort. The International Council of Museums (ICOM) observes International Museum Day to spread public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society. The original stamps, first day cover, mini sheets and other philatelic objects provided by the Department of Posts and material provided by philatelists will be displayed at the exhibition.

The postage stamp is a mode of commemorating, celebrating and promoting National Heritage and Events. Postal stamps mirror the rich and many-splendoured aspects of this land and were used to highlight the country’s wealth of cultural and natural heritage. Many beautiful stamps were issued in thematic sets on arts, architecture, crafts and maritime heritage. Besides above, great personalities of the nation have also been honoured.

The exhibition aims to accomplish the task of creating a sense of pride in our cultural legacy and imbuing the citizens of India with a heightened sense of responsibility about their contribution to the protection of our heritage.

The exhibition will be on show from 18th May to 17th July, 2012 (except Monday) from 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM.
