UN releases Mahatma stamp

UNITED NATIONS: Marking the International Day of Non-Violence, the United Nations released a Mahatma Gandhi stamp on the occasion of his 140th birth anniversary. The United Nations Postal Administration released the $1 stamp designed by Miamibased artist Ferdie Pacheco.

The stamp shows the Father of the Nation in red, blue and gold. Envelopes marked with the stamp and the U.N. seal are on sale. Several U.N. envoys present at a function, organised
by the Indian Mission, reiterated the impact of the Mahatma’s
“In many ways, Mahatma Gandhi pre-visioned the United Nations. Much of the work we do in the area of human rights owes its genesis in the struggle against racial discrimination, which he focused on,” said Ambassador to the U.N. Hardeep Singh Puri.
President of the General Assembly Ali Abdussalam Treki stressed upon Gandhiji’s commitment to communal harmony between the Muslims and the non-Muslims. Paying tributes to Gandhiji, United States Permanent Representative to the U.N., Susan Rice, said, “Gandhi had influenced millions of Americans. Gandhi believed that physical force could be
turned aside by moral forces.”

  1. गांधीजींना बाहेर खूपच मानतात असं दिसतंय?
    खरच त्यांनी सगळ्यांची खूप मदत केलेली दिसत्येय!

    हिंदू-मुस्लीम ऐक्य तर त्यांच्यामुळेच साध्य झालं.
    म्हणून तर अखंड हिंदुस्तानची फाळणी होवून दोन शांत आणि सु-व्यवस्थेने राहणारे देश तयार झाले ना!
    नाहीतर काय झालं असतं कोण जाणे!
    हिंदूंनी तर कहरच केला असता. मुस्लिमांना जगणंच मुश्कील झालं असतं!

    मी काय म्हणतो? फक्त नोटा & पोष्टाच्या तिकीटावरच का?
    सगळीकडे फक्त गांधी आणि गांधीजीच का नाही?
    सावरकर, शहीद भगतसिंग वगैरेंचे फोटो मध्ये मध्ये उगीच ठेवतात, नाही का?
    लो. टिळकांनी तर गांधीजींचा मार्ग कधीच स्वीकारला नाही. त्यांना पण उगीच मान देतात काही जणं.
    Microsoft चा logo म्हणून त्यांचा फोटो का नाही लावत?
    कशी काय वाटते idea?

    दे दी हमें आज़ादी बिना खड्ग बिना ढाल साबरमती के संत तूने कर दिया कमाल… Wa Wa!!!

  3. Pic चांगलं आहे.. पण त्यांच्या मेंदूत काय काय होतं ते शिक्रेट अमेरिकन लोकांना कसं समजलं!!! 😮


  4. Mr.Gandhi does seem very angry in that pic(contrary to his principles:How about this issue on our fully faltoo news channels)

    I personally felt he is tired of being used in the corrupt deals(currency) and is angry rather at his own helplessness towards now being a stamp on a packet which may again contain notes of his own image and be transfered under his own portrait on the wall of an office on the M.G. road under some Mahatma Gandhi Bhrashtachar Nirmulan Scheme. I really feel for him.

    By the way a news just flashed on a new corruption deal.All the money was delivered in cheques.no no there was no image there ..just afford a smile Mr.M
    (Sorry for being so cynical)
