It's always nice to see postcards showing people around the world, and I particularly like Indian postcards because so many of them are so wonderfully colourful. Like this one here...

The sender, Rajagopal, tells me this is a typical Indian scene where the priests and some devotees arrange a procession for their chosen dieties. Here, since the procession takes place in a village, a tractor has been temporarily modified for the purpose.

The stamp on the right was issued in 2009 and shows C.V. Raman. The stamp on the left is from a set of 5 (?) stamps issued in 2008, depicting people, this one here being Dr. B.R. Ambedkar.
