Stamp collecting means the collection of postal stamps of different countries. It is a favorite hobby to many people. They collect stamps for pleasure. Stamp collecting is not only a pastime it is educative too. By collecting stamps one can learn about different countries, their cities, capitals, production, and many other things. We can purchase stamps from the philatelic bureau. Foreign stamps can be collected through pen-
friends or relatives serving in other countries. By arranging the stamps in the systematic way, we can gather knowledge about the important monuments, statesman, product and history of many countries. Thus stamp collecting has great educative value. A stamp is not a mere of paper. It is very much a record of history. A stamp tells us of the time, place and country of its origin. Students may well be advised to develop the habit of stamp collecting.
