100 Years of the India post

The kind reader might remember my previous post about the 150 years of the India post. I recently got my hands on the stamp released by India post on the occasion of the 100 years of the India post in 1954.

For some strange reason, all the three postmen in the stamp look the same. Its as if a cartoon character went hopping in different settings for a photo-op.

I agree that true blood philatelists out there will shudder at the state of the stamp. But maybe the 50 years stamp that must have been released in 1904 will be in better shape. :)
