Postal Stamp Name : ANNA BHAU SATHE
Stamp Information : Anna Bhau Sathe (1920-1969) was one of the foremost creative writers of Marathi literature. He was also a progressive thinker and active revolutionary who strove relentlessly for the upliftment of the downtrodden sections of the society. Born in a poor family in the interior village of Wategaon in Maharashtra, he could not pursue basic education in the early years. Anna was 14 or 15 years of age when he came to Mumbai along with his father in search of better opportunities of life. He had to take up menial jobs like hotel boy, porter, boot polish boy, door keeper and quarry worker to eke out a living, but never allowed the hardship to dampen his spirit. He also worked as a tamasha (folk stage) artist. All these varied experiences enriched his life. He became an ideologue, a voice for the voiceless. He supported and participated in many progressive movements for wresting justice for the poverty-stricken masses.
