Stamp Information : The names of Lord Vithoba and Pandharpur are now by words for every devout Hindu and it is Namdeo who was esponsible for popularising them not only in Maharashtra but in the rest of India as well. Last but not least, Namdeo was one of the earliest to democratise religion by carrying its message from the learned to the lowly and encompassing within its fold the tailor, the barber. the maid-servant, the sweeper, the potter and even the dancing girl. It is the unique role that makes him out as a saint among saints. Namdeo's 700th birth anniversary falls on 9th November, 1970 and the Posts and Telegraphs Department joins the Nation in honouring this great man of God by issuing a special postage stamp to commemorate the occasion.
