About Manohar...

I Believe in GOD.
HE did not gave me the things I wanted,
Instead HE game me everything I needed.
I am 75.
Happily married since 1972. Daughter settled in Pune with 2 grandsons and son with one granddaughter in Australia.
Mechanical Engineer (1972 batch), worked in construction of Steel Plants in various parts of India. Now retired and resettled with wife in my home town, Raipur. Doing nothing for living and satisfied with what we have. Devoting most of the time to my hobbies and one of them is collection of postal letters addressed to me from all over the World.
This die hard hobby I started in 1965 (During this period in general only means of communication was these postal letters) with an AIM to have at least pair of postal letters from each stamp issuing country of the World. And I do it for my own pleasure.
Excuse me at this jet age of Internet, mobile and computers, hobby of connecting people through postal means is fading day by day. Present generation (most of them) even does not sure of post office and its existence. Postcrossing is doing well with an aim of connecting the people through post. GREAT.
Sadly so much time in this and still some 30-40 countries are missing in my collection. It is not that I am not trying but with no response at all. This may be due to their Geographical situation, Political, Educational and Economic conditions.
Now I have realized that only a passersby or traveler can help me in this regard (If they have time for me and can locate post office in working day in that area).
I hope postcrossing community will be of great help to me as here people at least know what postal letters and post offices are. Some members are travelers also and they can oblige me. With so many kind and helping member around me, I will achieve success in my project not immediately but definitely.
Any sort of help, suggestions, query to fulfil this dream project of mine is most welcome.
On wish part (not compulsory) I go for anything (cards, covers, philatelic items) which shows Fish, Fishing and Marine Life in any way.
I am silver medal holder in International level Stamp exhibition on collection of stamps under title “Fishes – you may not be knowing?” and second in “Fishing – A way of life”
Thanks for time spent on going through this profile cum request and your kindness.
PS: I have always believed - Being honest may not get many friends, but it will always get you the right ones.
