PRESS BRIEF
INDIA POST 2013 CALENDAR – ASTROLOGICAL SIGN
In an innovative gesture, the Department of Posts has been bringing out calendar
based on theme of stamps issued. The 2010 calendar was on the set of highly popular
'Dasavatar' stamps based on Jayadev's 12th century epic 'Geetagovinda'. India Post 2011
Calendar was based on the theme of ‘Buddha’ and India Post Calendar 2012 was based on
the theme of “Sculptural Heritage of India”. The Calendars were widely appreciated and
carried favorable media coverage.
Taking this initiative forward Department of Posts has now released India Post 2013
Calendar based on the theme of Astrological Signs.
The occult has always held a fascination for the human mind. Whether it is deemed
an art or a mathematically accurate science, the fascination remains. From the days of Vedic
astrology and the Delphic Oracle to current days, we have an inherent curiosity about
ourselves, our past and future.
The twelve zodiac signs are represented by figures and symbols and associated with
constellations and planets and their old Greek or Roman or Indian legends. Without any
partisanship on the veracity or otherwise of astrology and the occult arts, the Department
of Posts had issued a set of stamps on zodiac astrological signs. The designs of the stamps
are rooted in Indian folk art and depict the 12 zodiac signs- against four base colours which
reflect the elements of earth, air, fire and water. India Post 2013 Calendar is inspired by
these postage stamps.
India Post 2013 Calendar is available at various Philatelic Bureaux in the country at
the price of Rs. 250/- each.
