Philately Club

Philately grew as a hobby since my childhood inspired by my father who has a huge collection of both the Indian and foreign stamps. I have always admired the Indian stamps with dance forms, Michelangelo, freedom fighters, some stamps from Singapore with birds, Britain stamps with Queen, to name a few. At home, when I am bored watching TV or reading a book, I gaze at the beautiful stamp collections by my father. One of the biggest asset indeed.

In a decade, I have hardly contributed to the collection since no one sends a greeting card nor a hand written letter smelling fresh ink. It is hard to see stamps these days. Of late, I learned that the Post Office also delivers the new released stamps when subscribed to the philately club member ship for Rs 200/-.



Thus, keeping my philately collection alive. ;)

Have a look at the stamp released of yesteryear: 2009, 2008, 2007.

In the book, Mitch has interviewed several grieving family members, attended funerals. But he had never seen as Morrie cried. The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and let it come in. We are so much indulged in work that we forget how small things matter.

Mitch unexpectedly meets Morrie whose lower body had been paralysed. Morrie, though, survives with the help of others is full of life and one could never make out the fear of death from his expression. Morrie prepares himself strong to face death. The professor and the student decide to meet every Tuesday. They spend time discussing the secret behind the happiness.
