Stamp Information : CHILDRENS DAY The Indian Posts and Telegraphs Department has, since the year 1957, been bringing out special stamps to celebrate Children's Day each year. Various themes connected with the care and well being of children have been depicted in them. The subject of the special stamp to be brought out on Children's Day on November 14, 1963, as recommended by the International Union for Child Welfare, Geneva, is " A National Policy for Children". Within the framework of this idea, on the suggestion of the Indian Council for Child Welfare, The Posts and Telegraphs Department has chosen the provision of mid-day meals to school going children - as the theme for this year's Children's Day stamp. This is one of the several schemes, which has been launched to improve the health of our children. The Posts and Telegraphs Department is happy to bring out again, this yea, a special postage stamp emphasising the cause of child welfare.
