“Have you ever thought of learning from the stamps and knowing about the stories behind them?”
A philatelic exhibition was organized by the History Department of Vivek High School from May 11 to May 12, 2023, featuring stamps and photographic collections on India’s history and culture.
The exhibition started by highlighting the importance of letters and stories behind each stamp. A workshop was organized with discussions and illustrative interactions that helped the students understand the stamp collection and passion of a philatelist. India’s ancient history, legacy, and culture can be seen develop through stamps and letters.
Brig. Sarao showcased stamps relating to the life of Mahatma Gandhi and the freedom struggle, nature wildlife, and the culture of India. Around 1000 stamps were showcased in the conference hall of the campus. Besides this, the souvenirs of postal services were also showcased.
As the activity zone was buzzing with excitement amongst students, the panel was joined by Col. Puri who showcased his collection which he had been collecting since his childhood.
The unique workshop was an eye-opener as the panel inculcated passion for letters and stamps amongst students who now plan to organise a trip to the India Post office.
