FDC- Children’s Day- By India Post

First Day Cover- Children’s Day- By India Post

The first day cover is a Montage of paintings.One shows a child resting from labour demanded on him, far beyond his strength and age- placed between two nurturing hands whoch carry his dreams: the company of other children and an education that empowers him. Below that a glowing night scene depicts a young boy teaching adults to read and write and to learn computer skills.

Another painting shows children’s concern for the elderly and for the physically challenged.In yet another picture a child observant eye and the heart goes out to the enviroment which we do not hesitate to pollute with our everyday activities.
