Stamps !!!

Stamps posses  the finest pieces of history of countries, culture and civilization. The broad variety of stamps from the different corners of the world never ends to fascinate us. We learn about the place, transportation, food, dress and so much more by a small piece of paper. Yet it appears so bright and colorful to most of us. Collecting stamps is the hobby of many people around the world and is often encouraging in blending and knowing the  the culture of the distant lands. Enthusiast go on to become philatelist to show his/her passion for stamps. Here I pay my tribute to the wonder paper which not only helps us in delivering thoughts but in the process creates many.
