Stamp Information : The aim of guiding is "Character development towards happy citizenship, through natural rather than artificial means". The Girl Guide Movement was founded by Lord Baden Powell in 1910. It was introduced in Indai at Jabalpur where a company was formed in 1911. During the next few years, several other companies srang up, but these companies were restricted to Anglo-Indian girls and weree controlled by the headquarters of the Movement in England. By 1915, the movement had spread to Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, etc., and more than 15 companies had been formed, still controlled from London. In the meantime, several independent companies had ben formed for Indian girls. The first was 2nd Poona (Bombay State) started in 1916.
