How your selfies are going to make Kumbh Mela 2019 interesting
Kumbh Mela, the mass Hindu pilgrimage, held periodically in the four locations of Haridwar, Allahabad, Nashik and Ujjain, each location hosting it once in 12 years, will be held in Allahabad next year and it promises to become an interesting affair.
If you are attending the event next year, make sure you click pictures of the heritage sites, landscapes, pictures of your friends and even selfies because you may have an opportunity to convert it in to postal stamps.
SK Rai, Director, Postal Services, said to the media “Your photos will be incorporated on temporary postal stamps, as long as they don’t breach any copyright rules,”
Visitors would be required to fill a form and submit it with their photographs along with Rs 300. The department will scan the photograph and then create a personalised postal stamp of Rs 5 denomination. People would also be able to click photographs on the spot, for the stamps.
This scheme will make the 2019 Allahabad Kumbh Mela a very interesting event.
