Postcard from India no. 3
This postcard from India is of an earlier date. I received it on 5 November 2007 from Hampankatta, Mangalore in the state of Karnataka (zip 575001). It show a statue of a dancer in the Chennekesawa Temple in Belur (Karnataka).
The Rs. 5/- stamp was issued on 2 October 2007 as part of a series dedicated to the centenary of Satyagraha (non-violent resistance), developed by Mahatma Gandhi. The Rs. 3/- definitive is part of the already mentioned VIII Definitive Series of the Indian post (2000) and shows a smooth Indian otter. Thank you, Praveen!
