The School was visited by Mahatma Gandhi in 1921 and appreciated the pious environment and the dedicated teachers of this Gurukul of Orissa which was later termed as “Man making factory”. The cover depicts the open air classroom of Satyabadi Bana Bidyalaya and the Panchasakha. The cancellation depicts the flame. The cover was designed by Pradip Mohanty, Philatelist.
