News from Ludhiana Philatelic Club


A national award-winning exhibit on “Renewable Sources of Energy” was inaugurated by Dr Manjeet Singh, Dean, College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, in the Department of Renewable Energy Engineering, Punjab Agricultural University (PAU). The exhibit is gifted by the family of the late Mr. S. C. Jain, a renowned philatelist of Ludhiana Philatelic Club. The exhibit shows different aspects of renewable energy sources, using postage stamps issued by different countries from all over the world.

In his remarks, Dr Singh said that stamps can serve as educational tools to raise awareness about renewable energy sources and their importance in mitigating climate change. Dr Rajan Aggarwal, Head of the department, said that stamps serve as a unique medium for promoting awareness and appreciation of clean energy initiatives and their importance in addressing environmental challenges. Dr. SK Sondhi, former Dean of the College and founder President of the Ludhiana Philatelic Club, said that by incorporating philately into renewable energy education, educators can inspire students' curiosity, deepen their understanding of renewable energy concepts, and foster a sense of global citizenship and environmental stewardship. 

Further, Dr SD Khepar, former Dean and National Professor of the COAE added that by integrating the passion of stamp collecting with the vital realm of renewable energy education, educators possess a unique opportunity to ignite students' inquisitiveness and enrich their comprehension of renewable energy principles. This fusion not only cultivates a profound understanding of sustainable energy sources but also nurtures a profound sense of global interconnectedness and responsibility towards our planet, he observed. Dr Rakesh Sharda, Project Coordinator, CIPHET and Mr. Mukesh Malhotra, Mr. Yash Pal Chhabra, Mr. Vivek Nayyar, and Mr. Gursagar Singh from Ludhiana Philatelic Club were also present.
