Philately is the study of stamps and postal history and other related items. It also refers to the collection, appreciation and research activities on stamps and other philatelic products. Junior School students visited the Indore GPO and met the in-charge of philatelic bureau, Ms. Kamla Khatwani. She showed us various stamps in the collection of GPO and formally announced the launch of Gyankriti’s Philatelic Club. We will dedicate an entire wall at Gyankriti for showcasing the stamps issued by post office, in the hope that it will be an excellent way for students to learn about historical events.
We also gifted each student a specially printed stamp with Gyankriti logo and an envelope. They will use it to complete a homework assignment where they are supposed to send a letter to any of their friends or relatives.
It is also possible to develop philately as a hobby for your children. It is a very easy and simple process. You just need to open a ‘philatelic-deposit-account’ at the GPO and they will send you a copy of all the latest stamps issued by the Dept. of posts.
You can also get customized My Stamps with photos of your child or a family photo.
Contact Ms. Khatwani at the GPO for availing these facilities.
