New Delhi,18/08/19:Indian Post should extend system of sponsorship for issuing sponsored postal-stamps on commercial lines like is presently done in case of post-cards and Inland-Letter-Cards. Sponsored postal-stamps with some minimum stipulated number can carry advertisements or other messages desired by sponsors to be endorsed by a committee of the Department with sponsorship-charge fixed per printed stamp. System will give dual-edged enormous extra revenue-earning firstly from sponsorship and secondly by making sponsoring companies shifting from private courier-companies to premier postal-services provided by India Post. 

To induce newness in system and for earning extra revenue through philately, India Post should traditionally issue an altogether new definitive series of postal-stamps and postal-stationary simultaneously in all denominations every year on first day of new financial year which should also be date of revision of postal-tariffs if any. However colour of a particular denomination of a postal-stamp of definitive series should be same but with change in design on basis of theme selected for that year. A representative of main opposition party should be traditionally included in the advisory-body to decide on issue of new postal-stamps to avoid any political bias in choosing personalities to be figured on postal-stamps.

Indian press strengthened nationalist movement during freedom struggle 

Dhenkanal, 17 August 2019: Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) Dhenkanal celebrated its 27th foundation day with a special lecture on 'Press, Nationalism and India's Freedom Struggle'. Pritish Acharya, professor of history at the Regional Institute of Education at Bhubaneswar, delivered the Foundation Day Lecture this year. 

While IIMC Delhi was established on this day in 1965, its eastern regional campus in Dhenkanal came up on 14 August in 1993. IIMC now has four more regional campuses in Jammu, Amaravati, Kottayam and Aizwal. 

Delivering the Foundation Day Lecture Professor Acharya stressed on the concept of nationalism and how its growth was associated with journalism during India's freedom struggle. "In public parlance nationalism and freedom struggle are synonymous. But, they are not. Nationalism is a broader concept that justifies the transformation of a modern state into a nation." 

According to him the birth of press had preceded freedom struggle and the concept of nationalism in India. Rather newspapers had nurtured both and the "nurturing was never un-critical, which strengthened the nationalist struggle," said professor Acharya. 

Chronicling the rise of newspapers in India and its patronage by the prominent leaders of freedom movement, he said, "India’s nationhood at the end of the

freedom struggle was not a going back to the pre-British era, but building up of a new nation based on modern, scientific and universal values. While fighting the British colonialism, the nationalists also struggled against those obscurantist and dogmatic views which had stumbled India’s rise as a modern nation. Critiquing the Sati system or child marriage system or untouchability or asking for mass literacy and woman education was as much a nationalist act as the anti-British activities." 

In his opening remarks, special guest Subir Ghosh, author and academician, went down memory lane to remind the audience how IIMC was established in a rented house in Delhi's South Extension for upliftment of study and training of mass communication in developing countries. He also mentioned how the then I&B minister KP Singh Deo was instrumental in setting up the IIMC campus in Dhenkanal. 

Dr Mrinal Chatterjee, regional director, IIMC, Dhenkanal inaugurated the session which began with the hoisting of the institute's flag. The students had organised a cultural programme which included a Hindi play, 'Kafan', based on the story by Munshi Premchand and an Odia play, 'Doshi Ke'. 

An essay writing competition on the 'Our role in combating climate change' and a debate on 'One Nation, One Election' were also organised to mark the foundation day. 

Jatin Grover (English) and Rajat Kumar Panda (Odia) won the debate competition while Rupa Kumari (English) and Binod Kumar Behera (Odia) came first in the essay competition. The prizes were distributed to the winners by the guests.

Keonjhar 16th August :  A Day of Death Mourning Cover of the Late Atal Bihari Vajpayee was  released   by  senior BJP leader  Shri Murli Manohar Sharma at Keonjhar as part of the 1st Death Anniversary Program  of the departed leader. 

The Cover was issued on the day of Shri Vajpayee’s death and posted at Bhubaneswar on the same day i.e.  16th August 2018. It was issued by Anil Dhir, the secretary of the Mourning Cover Collectors Society of India. Black Bordered Mourning Covers are issued to mark the demise of statesmen and leaders as a mark of homage. Earlier too, covers were issued on Biju Patnaik, Abdul Kalam, Karunanidhi etc. These are collectible items and cherished by Philatelists. The Mourning Cover that was issued on the death of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948 was recently sold for Rs 4 lacs in an auction.  

Speaking on the occasion, Murli Manohar Sharma said that very few people in public life have the privilege to become a legend in their lifetime and Atal Bihari Vajpayee was one amongst such rarest of rare personalities that not only influenced their era, but also cast their shadow on the future. He was a great humanist and a visionary leader throughout his life. Vajpayee’s era will remain historic in Indian politics. 

Anil Dhir said that Atalji was a towering but gentle colossus in the political arena.  Both as a Prime Minister  and a  parliamentarian, Vajpayee remained true to the tenets of constitutional and democratic processes. He said that Vajpayee’s India was different from today’s India. Vajpayee’s BJP was different from today’s BJP. Democracy itself was different, allowing space for opponents of the government, where the spirit of freedom was never suppressed overtly or covertly. The Secretary of the Keonjhar Philatelic Association, Dr. C.S.Basak and others too were present on the occasion.
