Readers Desk

I deeply regret to learn about the sad demise of Mr. A S Mittal. We were old friends . I had first correspondence with him in 1971 & first meeting with him in 1973, after that we exchanged several letters. Whenever I visited Jaipur he was a great host with all love & affection. He has not given me several good items for my collection but also guide me time to time. He was a very kind man. This is big loss not only for the Philatelists of Rajasthan but of Indian Philately.  I always remember him.

News – Mr A S Mittal Passes away

We are extremely sorry to inform our readers about the sad demise of  Sh A S Mittal of Mittal Stamp Company Jaipur & Founder member of Rajasthan Philatelic Society on 18 Sept 2010. Mr Mittal was a true Gentleman and a renowned Philatelist loved by all . He was to be found at each and every Philatelic Exhibition / Show / Gathering. He was Loved by both Young and Old Philatelists . One has grown seeing such stalwarts of Philately. He had extremely Pleasing Personality and was very helpful by nature. A Large number of Philatelists owe their success due to help and material supplied by him . The  World is poorer today due to his passing away and this void of an elder Philatelist among us is difficult to be filled.

WE at INDIAN STAMP GHAR shall miss him and his valuable advice and pray to  the ALMIGHTY on behalf of all our Readers to Grant peace to the departed Noble Soul and give strength and courage to the family to bear this  irrepairable loss .
