First of all, I must express my disappointment...its been two working days in the new year, and my postman hasnt visited me ONCE...not a single postcard or letter...I hoped he was gonna come on Saturday...he didnt....and then I was CONVINCED he would come today....nope...big ignore again....not a nice start of the year mail wise....*sniff*
well, the other thing is that this is the last place where i should be....i have bunch of work to do, a deadline over my head...but no...i have to post cards at times least inconvenient for that...some things never change....
And here comes a flag card from India! Now, before you get into the temptation to click the comment-button and tell me i had posted this flag upside down...let me tell you...thats how the postcard actually is....printing mistake, on purpose or accident, I dont know...I was wondering for a long while if i should place it the right way or leave it in the original...and decided to leave the original...so in case I see a comment correcting me the flag is upside down, I will know for sure that the certain person hasnt read the post :) So that way Ill know who really reads my ramblings and who just skims through the cards and stamps...he he he...evil me :P
The Indian flag is a horizontal tricolor in equal proportion of deep saffron on the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom. The ratio of the width to the length of the flag is two is to three. In the centre of the white band, there is a wheel in navy blue to indicate the Dharma Chakra, the wheel of law in the Sarnath Lion Capital. This center symbol or the 'CHAKRA' is a symbol dating back to 2nd century BC. Its diameter approximates the width of the white band and it has 24 spokes, which intends to show that there is life in movement and death in stagnation. The saffron stands for courage and sacrifice; the white, for purity and truth; the green for growth and auspiciousness.
I love flags with a meaning.
I had already posted the rose stamp before, where i said it was a definitive issued in 2002...like then, im still not sure if this info is totally accurate.
as for the other...regardless how much i hate to admit this...i have no clue about it
