A Message from Former President - Dr. Kalam
Sent by- Kunal Aggarwal
During my tenure as President of India,
it was my privilege to travel the length and breadth of our country, meeting people from every walk of life. From all my interactions, the constant thought which emerged was the pride of our country's rich history and accomplishments, hope and enthusiasm for a peaceful, prosperous, happy and a safe future. Beneath the surface of every Indian, a deep well of patriotism, with certain value system, is embedded drawn from our civilisational heritage. I am delighted to introduce to you, friends, this collection of commemorative stamp ingots entitled "Pride of India". Over the years, the stamps issued by India Post have authentically reflected our finest moments and rich culture. The collection represents celebration of our freedom movement, celebration of great minds, celebration of our successes in science, technology, industry, sports and celebration of our art and culture.
I am sure, you will find joy and inspiration in the images reflected in the Pride of India Collection, and pass on that spirit of resilience and endeavour they represent to future generations.
