With deep sense of gratitude, I wish to thank my well wisher and good friend Mainak Kathiara, President Emeritus Gujarat Philatelists' Association Ahmedabad for encouraging me in this endeavor of designing a Website. But for his active support, encouragement and help in providing scans and material required, this website would not have seen the light of the day. I gratefully acknowledge his painstaking effort to provide all information and material for making this website as useful, user friendly and informative as possible. He is the source of inspiration and guiding force to me in philately world. I highly appreciate and gratefully acknowledge his inputs, in various spheres to better the presentation of this website.
My special thanks to my wife Rekha who has never grudged for taking away her share of life time and has always extended excellent encouragement and support. I also would like to make a sincere note of thanks for the help, support and encouragement of my children Kunal-Bina & Binali-Milan, USA in preparing this website.
I, with all my humbleness, acknowledge with gratitude the useful information that I got from "Know your Stamps" of D. Chakravarty and "Phila India Guide book" of Shri Manik Jain. I am grateful to these learned scholars for their extraordinary work in the philatelic field.
I am highly thankful to Sapan Jhaveri, a visualiser in true sense, for giving me advice and support to make this type of creative & artistic philatelic work.
I express my thanks to Abhay Shah, Ahmedabad who is a friend, well wisher and everything for me. His silent support has made me capable to launch this website.
I also thank Farokh Todywalla, Mumbai who has always encouraged me for these types of Projects which educate and create awareness amongst collectors to organize and develop their hobbies.
A number of organizations, friends and colleagues have contributed and helped me in this endeavor. They have either provided the material or their material has been used with gratitude on this website at appropriate places. Although it is not possible to acknowledge their help and contributions individually, I wish to record my thanks to:
My friend Hiral Shah and Dipen Oza have kept no stone unturned to see that this Website becomes best in all respects. My sincere thanks are due to all of them. I am also grateful to my Computer Engineers, Shirish Contractor & Jignesh Contractor, Ahmedabad for their timely help at every stage.
