News-Latest Update on Stampmania 2009-Vadodara

Dear Friends and Fellow Philatelists,

It gives me a great pleasure to provide you more information about STAMPMANIA 2009 – the First National One Frame Philatelic Exhibition to be held at Vadodara from 17th to 20th December 2009.
We have an ambitious plan to make this exhibition a memorable one. In my opinion, the success of such event can only be measured by the extent of participation and enthusiasm of philatelists. The great satisfaction I feel is expressions of appreciation and positive feedback coming from the philatelic fraternity from every corner of the country. The support of officers of ‘India Post’ is the backbone of the spirit of Stampmania 2009.
  • There is a great enthusiasm amongst the philatelists and we are receiving entry forms from each and every corner of the country.
  • List of titles of exhibits can be viewed at our website www.stampmania2009.com

  • Indian Philately pays its glorious tribute to the Indian history, culture, traditions, heritage, great Patriots and other people who have been the architects of modern India and Indian stamps are most beautiful and educative miniatures which plays pivoted role in helping people understand the heritage and culture of our country. Keeping this thought in mind, we have decided to organize a ‘Heritage Walk through Stamps’ as a part of Stampmania 2009 on 17th December 2009. Philatelists, School Children and local citizens will walk through the city holding Stamp blow-ups and magnified versions of the originals of Stamps on Indian Heritage. The objective is to motivate the people and especially school children to adopt the hobby of Philately and enable them to experience the culture and heritage of the Country.
  • Those who are visiting STAMPMANIA 2009 are requested to plan their schedule in such a way that they can participate in the ‘Heritage Walk through Stamps’. Please don’t miss this opportunity.
  • ‘Hotel Express Towers’ is our Exclusive Hospitality Partner and they have offered 15% Discount on Hotel Tariff to guests visiting Stampmania 2009.
  • Information about More Hotels and other accommodation facilities will also be made available on website shortly.
  • We have sent copies of our Stampmania 2009 Special issue of quarterly newsletter ‘Vadophil’ (with Stampmania 2009 Newsletter No. 1) to all the participants, philatelic organizations, dealers and philatelist friends. We look forward to have your comments and suggestions.
  • ‘Sahara Samay NCR’ has published the Story of Ms. N. Kalyani about Stampmania 2009. Please visit http://ncrsamaylive.com/NewsDetails.aspx?lNewsID=42473
  • As a part of STAMPMANIA 2009 and to celebrate 63rd Independence Day, we are going to release a Special Cover and a Stamp Booklet on 15th August 2009. The booklet will also contain Indian Flags used during the freedom movement of India. More information about the special cover and a booklet will be available very soon on our website www.stampmania2009.com . A separate email message will be circulated very soon.
