13 May : R. K. Narayan's death anniversary.

R. K. Narayan"No one ever accepts criticism so cheerfully. Neither the man who utters it nor the man who invites it really means it." - R. K. Narayan.

Rasipuram Krishnaswami Iyer Narayanaswami (b. 10 October 1906 – d. 13 May 2001), commonly known as R. K. Narayan was a writer, best known for his works set in the fictional South Indian town of Malgudi. He is one of three leading figures of early Indian literature in English (alongside Mulk Raj Anand and Raja Rao), and is credited with bringing the genre to the rest of the world.


This one’s for the bird (stamp) !
(Story about 1975, 50 p. definitive stamp of India)

Story about 1975, 50 p. definitive stamp of IndiaOne of the problems of Indian Philately is that the “story” behind a postage stamp is quite opaque. The postal department does not oblige philatelists by reliable documentation and transparent procedures. I was writing an article on “Birds on Indian Stamps” for Aasheesh Pittie, editor of the Indian Birds and I found it difficult to find any information about bird stamps. I was constrained to publish the article, though I felt that I had inadequate information and could find no way of getting more. Those who missed reading the article and would like to peruse it may find it here.
