Recently I was looking Gandhi Handbook and I was surprised when I saw 1997 Austria special cancellation postmark of temple (Birla Temple) in Gandhi Handbook by Manik Jain and Mrinal Kanti Ray.
Also this book was acknowledge by lot of Gandhi philatelist and some of the Gandhi stamps collectors and philatelist provided philatelic material to be included in this Gandhi Handbook.
So this Gandhi Handbook should be bible for Gandhi stamp collectors as well Gandhi philatelist, but I don't think it is.!!
It has lot of Bogus (never exist) philatelic material which are made using forged rubber stamp and some of them even don't make sense.
Not sure how this BOGUS or FORGERY went through this Gandhi Handbook.
I don't trust this kind of philatelic literature any more as it looks like it was made specially to help forger who create all bogus philatelic material.
This Gandhi Handbook has lot of information not only about stamps and philatelic material related to Mahatma Gandhi but also it has information about coins, currency notes, labels, medals, newspaper,folders, printing error waste, overprints stamps etc.
I am not here trying to prove right or wrong, but my only goal or aim to educate if any new stamp collectors who are trying to collect stamps and philatelic material so they know where they are jumping.!!
