Quit India Movement (8th August, 1942)


On this day, Mahatma Gandhi raised his voice for a Quit India Movement (also known as the "Bharat Chodo Andolan”), which called for a mass uprising. Rusted Post Box brings to you India's attempt at freedom from the British-Raj, through stamps and coins. This powerful movement was so strong that it shook the British empire at its core!

Rusted Post Box is a series of docudramas that relates various stamps, coins and notes to significant historic events. With the help of the newly established online museum, www.mintageworld.com, this series aims at imparting knowledge and creating interest in the areas of Philately, Numismatics and Notaphily within the general public, collectors, students and scholars alike.

Promoted by the “Ultra” group, mintageworld.com is the first website of its kind in the world, where all the three fields have been brought under one roof.
