Hard to believe that, as the daughter of Nehru - "the last Englishman to rule India" - Indira was short of a bob or two!

This is an Indian Anti-Leprosy label/cinderella (Blatt LA040) issued by Leprosy Relief Council (Uttar Pradesh), Lakhnau in c1969.

Vignette: It shows noted Sanskritam scholar Parchure Shastri who became a leprosy patient, being attended by Mohandas Gandhi at Sevagram, Vardha in December 1939.

The image is taken from this famous photograph taken by Kanu Narayandas Gandhi (19171986).



This very photo has also been used on a #8377;20 commemorative postage stamp issued on MK Gandhi by India Post today i.e. on October 2,2018.

"Used abroad"
Here is my first query 9th Sept 2008 to "Stamp Experts"
I wondered why PONDICHERRY was considered "used abroad"

Postmark FOREIGN EVE as Tony suggested Foreign Mail on the evening collection, or
similar.

Rod, are you suggesting that the cancel is from 1941? Because Br. India Sc 168 was issued in 1942.

This Indian Embassy Nepal cancel cannot be from 1941 as this Braun type Ka (datestamp diameter: 25.5mm) roller cancel (not machine cancel) with movable hour slugs was introduced only in 1948.

It was originally established as British Legation (Nepal) SPO in Kathmada#361; in 1920 and was renamed Indian Embassy (Nepal) PO in 1948.

Hi Joy,

I see the entry "135 Namayan - Prome Burma" in a list of Bengal Circle postmarks on Stampboards (I believe assembled from an India Study Circle list).

I would interpret this a colonial name Namayan was associated (or perhaps equivalent) with Prome (Pyay) in Bago.

Hi Dianne, thank you for your kind words.

Hi Joy,
no, sorry. It will be a common complaint with all my stamp identification.

I follow the Scott catalogue, and Steiner mounting regime, with no apologies, it groups stamps in sets, not on issue date.
It has the benefit of grouping stamps in "families" both for my pages, for storing duplicates in "year sets" , for fast ID in my text string searches.

Some sets as Kemal Attaturk (Turkey) span decades, and this regime makes my collecting a breeze.
I used to follow Gibbons regime of issue date, and it drove me dizzy.

If I note it in my other India, I'll try and give issue date in brackets, in future.

Thanks (as usual) for your information.
