Regarding Akidu, the full postmark I believe is AKIDU GODAVARI.

Akidu is in the West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh, and is now called Akividu:

Is Akividu a village or town? Officially it is not a Municipality but a Panchayat and Firca. Yet it has all the trappings of a town. This village/town had floating population always from neighbouring villages and villages from Kolleru Lake as well.

Akividu had a fully functional Post Office, where you can send telegrams, buy money orders, send registered mail and open a Postal Savings account. Of course there was trunk call facility, which was a small rectangle closet, you can talk your lungs out. Mail was delivered twice a day, morning and evening, by a Postman who walked or rode a bicycle along his route. In addition money orders and Telegrams were delivered by a designated Postman.

Akividu had a Police Station with Sub-Inspector, Head Constable, Writer and Policemen. In those days Policemen and Elementary School Teachers were most under paid.

Cinderellas.

During October 1979 two stamps inscribed "HAPPY CHILD NATION'S PRIDE" with face value of 50 p. and 1 r.were issued to post offices.These were intended for sale as charity lables,without postal validity.The proceeds
going to a Child Welfare fund. It would seem that the instructions issued were unclear,however,as some post offices sold these labels as postage stamps and accepted mail franked with them.

The puncture operator has tried too many sheets at once, or the pins are blunt, and have not successfully penetrated this example, but picked up the orange ink from the stamp below it.
