Gandhi Jayanti Cover from great Gandhi Philatelist Ole-Fredrik of Norway

Hello Gandhi Collectors,

Last week I got cover from  Ole-Fredrik Olsen who is one of the best known Gandhi Philatelist in the world.

This cover  from Sandefjord, Norway was send to celebrate 142 birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi which is celebrate in world as Gandhi Jayanti  and since 2007 it is also celebrated as International Day of Non-Violence.

This cover is printed with Mahatma Gandhi spinning the wheel to make Khadi (cloth) which he used for  promoting the spinning of khadi for rural self-employment and self-reliance (instead of using cloth manufactured industrially in Britain) in 1920s India thus making khadi an integral part and icon of the Swadeshi movement.  Also this cover has  rubber stamp in green color of Mahatma Gandhi picture and his existence dates in the world. Because of Sunday  on October 2nd, 2011 it has cancellation of next day.

I am really happy to get  this covers from great philatelist around the world. This is my 2nd cover from well known Gandhi Philatelist. First one was from Nikhil Mundra who had send me FDC from India with 25 Rupees Gandhi stamps issued on October 2nd 2009.

Thank You Mr.Olsen for sending me this cover.

Ketankumar Patel.
