Hi ! In today’s special Post I am pleased to share a nice stamp from Canada which appears like our Hindu God "Hanuman " . The nice Canadian stamp shown here depicts the "monkey king" from the famous Chinese legend "Adventure of Monkey King – Journey to the West". Our distinguished member Dr Hemant Kulkarni gives details about it… Hope you will enjoy reading it….This is all for Today…..Till Next Post….Have a Nice Time !!
On October 13, 1970 Canada and People's Republic of China, following 22 months of negotiations in Stockholm established diplomatic relations. Since more than one million Chinese live in Canada, it issues wonderful Philatelic items as a tribute to Lunar Year that's based on 'Animal' signs -quite popular for Asians in particular. Here's one that was issued in 2004 as 'Year Of The Monkey' without a reference to Hanuman for the obvious reason. The stamp itself has been unique in the sense that it is embossed .
