In the August of 1947, India broke the shackles of British colonialism and became independent. Through stamps and coins, Rusted Post Box presents the events leading to this glorious day. Nevertheless, amid all the celebrations and joy lets not forget the gloomy event of the partition and the millions that were displaced.

Rusted Post Box is a series of docudramas that relates various stamps, coins and notes to significant historic events.
