Care for the Alzheimer' patient…




The Correo Argentino has issued a stamp to draw public attention to the Alzheimer's disease. Unfortunately, There is no cure for the disease, which worsens as it progresses, and eventually leads to death. Most often, it is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age, although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer's can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 million sufferers worldwide. Alzheimer's is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050.

The stamp calls not to leave people affected by the Alzheimer's disease alone with their trouble. Relative or companion should accompany, understand and support the sick person each day, as tells the slogan on the stamp.

Sub - Malpractices at Srinagar Philatelic Bureau

Dear Sir,
I want to draw your attention towards malpractices at Srinagar philatelic Bureau.

I had sent an EMO ref.no 149703120827003247 dated 27/08/2012 in favour of Senior Postmaster, Srinagan GPO for Rs. 1300 (One thousand Three hundred only).

I had requested to send me following items:-

Item No.  Item     Rate    Quantity Amount

62 Vashnodevi cover 20 2  40

73 Gandhi Booklet 30 3  90

74 Film fest cover 20 3  60

75 film fest cover 20 3  60

76 film fest cover 20 3  60

79 Film fest booklet         30 3  90

80 film fest cover 100 3 300

81 film fest cover 100 3 300

82 film fest cover 100 3 300


Total                                 Rs. 1300

Very surprisingly, I got a packet from there which contain following items:-

Last 4 items-booklets--3 each-as per my requirment.

Total 40 nos. of covers.

But all those special covers I got were simple envelopes without stamp or postmark on them. Those were of no use for me.


Then I talked to the Postmaster, who asked me to return those blank spl covers.
I had sent those covers on 15th Sept 2012 by Speed post.After several reminders, they sent me 3 sets of Special covers with stamps and postmarks-but again wrong covers. All the 9 covers they postmarked as 15-06.2012.


They also sent me a stamp booklet issued on 2-10-2012, but stamps were affixed on wrong side.

I assume that postal staffs at Srinagar has no idea about spl. covers and booklets and whatever I paid was just a loss.
Please take care of such malpractices and do needful. Please arrange to send me correct items too.
