Philately is the art of collecting stamps and researching on them. The main difference between a Philatelist and a Stamp Collector is that a Philatelist knows everything about the stamp he collects. One can learn a lot by collecting stamps and studying about them. It offers rich knowledge and a very rewarding hobby. After being at the Philately Expo organised in Coimbatore on the 27th of November, 2014, the hobby interested me immensely. I decided to collect stamps inspired by the thousands of stamps put on display at the hall. Kudos to India Post for the initiative! The first stamps I bought to start the collection are the commemorative stamps released in 2014 by India Post honouring Indian Musicians.
