About Harsh...

I'm a naughty & adorable boy; only child to my loving parents

Always effervescent in behavior, going by the meaning of my name - JOY or HAPPINESS; an Indian name pronounced as 'h-uh-rr-sh'

My father writes the postcards & I enjoy the incoming mail. We celebrate this journey together

I'm interested in knowing more about the world. On registering postcards I will write 'I have learnt that.. ' ; so feel free to teach me something with your message
Every sender is my teacher & every postcard my window to the world

Collecting "NEWSPAPER MASTHEADS" is my hobby, read more about it below

Postcard themes
- elephants (I collect figurines too!)
- insects, including spiders (which technically are not insects)
- flags of countries (no state flags please)
- national anthems
- nobel prize winners, all categories (I will send a thank you postcard)
- world wildlife fund
- colorful carnival masks & costumes
- cars, vehicles, airplanes
- DC & Marvel super heroes
- pokémom
- dogs
- maxi/maxim/maximum cards
- 3D cards
- long, square, odd shaped
- people reading newspapers

Flag cards already received : FI, RU, NL, AU, TW, GG, TR, DE, CN, US, GB, BR, LT, BG, CA, JP, GR, FR

These are the top portion of the front page of the newspaper. Typically the part where the name of newspaper along with the logo is printed with the date & city of edition.
Happy to receive decorative mastheads printed on days of national importance & festivals. Also welcome are sports, travel, home, business, international & other features but strictly no magazines please
No restrictions on language, date and frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, etc). If any of the news is noteworthy then include the same

The idea is to catalogue newspapers while they are staring at death due to fast paced digitisation

I would prefer to receive only postcards; if you wish to send them in an envelope & don't mind then please send
- NEWSPAPER MASTHEADS (I will send a thank you postcard)
- stickers
- currency; I'll gift the postman equivalent Indian rupees for the joy he brings from across the world. He is a wonderful person who in turn uses the money to educate a girl child or take care of his aged neighbor
- unused miniature / souvenir sheets of stamp. They appeal to me more than stamps
- bookmarks, calendars
- pencils
- fridge magnets
- key chains
- bracelets with shiny beads
- wedding invitations (personal information will be kept confidential)

Direct swaps will be if they help in enriching the collection of NEWSPAPER Mastheads

About me
-currently enjoying reading children fantasy books: Rick Riordan, Cressida Cowell and soon onto Harry Potter
-more towards reality I'm reading Lemony Snicket's Unfortunate Series
-making steady progress in the Kumon Maths Program
-in April 2019 I had been on a 5 day hike in the Himalaya Mountains & climbed upto a height of 12500 feet above sea level

JOY! from Bangalore, India
