Bengaluru GPO. (Photo source-internet)
When I was in Bengaluru in January, one of my friends suggested that I visit the Bengaluru General Post Office (GPO). The building is nice, he said, and added that I must also visit their Philately Section.
the GPO building was imposing from outside and spacious, neat and clean from inside. The Philately Section on the first floor too was spacious and well organised. I took a number of photos but unfortunately later on, while transferring those to the pen-drive something happened and I lost about 350 photos that I had taken in Bengaluru & in Chennai.
Anyway, I bought two sets of stamps from the GPO as small souvenirs. Take a look.
Memorial to Indian soldiers at Neuve Chapelle, France.
On this day, one hundred years back, on March 11, 1915, Rifleman Ait Singh Gurung (#4230-2nd King Edward’s Own Gurkha Rifles [The Sirmoor Rifles]), Sepoy Bachitar Singh (#4626- 59th Scinde Rifles [Frontier Force]), Sepoy Ram Sarup (#2435 – Jats), Sepoy Makhmad Ali (#4361-59th Scinde Rifles [Frontier Force]) and 109 other Indian soldiers died fighting at Neuve Chapelle, France.
Respectful salute to them.
Coming soon more details in my book ‘Indian martyrs of World War-I in Neuve Chapelle Memorial and Mazargues Cemetery, France’
I have just received this picture post card from my son Anurag, who is travelling in Sri Lanka. The post card shows the Maritime Archaeology Museum, All Saints Church Fort Galle and The National Museum
This is what I got when I ordered a ‘special vegetarian dish of rice & vegetables’ somewhere in Brazil. Believe you me- good looking, yes, but only boiled, totally bland and absolutely inedible.
There is nothing like Indian food in the world.
