VP Naidu releases postage stamp in memory of Rajyogini Dadi Janki

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu released a commemorative postage stamp yesterday 12 April 2021 in the memory of former Chief of Brahma Kumaris Rajyogini Dadi Janki in New Delhi . Speaking on the occasion, Mr Naidu said, what makes Brahma Kumaris so special is that the organisation is led by women. He said they have demonstrated that spiritual attainments transcend gender-based distinction. The Vice President said, society needs to be educated on equal rights to women in every field, not merely in letter, but in spirit, as well. He said, spirituality is the basis of all religions and the same spiritual thread binds them together. Mr Naidu said, we should draw inspiration from Dadi Janki’s life which was dedicated to God and to selfless service of humanity.

Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad was also present on the occasion.

A collection of six Special Stamps celebrating the imagination and artistic legacy of classic science fiction will be issued on 15 April 2021 by Royal Mail.

Each stamp features a unique interpretation by a different artist illustrating a seminal work by a classic British science fiction author. Two First Class, two £1.70 and two £2.55 stamps presented as three horizontal se-tenant pairs.

Two special edition science fiction postmarks will be given , commemorating the first day of issue.

The Tallents House postmark features an image of Frankenstein’s hand. The illustration on the alternative postmark represents HG Wells’ The Time Machine, and the location, London NW1, is a tribute to the house where Wells worked and died.

Inside the First Day Cover is an illustrated information card detailing a brief biography of the featured classic science fiction authors.
