Mahatma Gandhi and Satyagraha | Gandhi Jayanti | Part 2


Gandhi’s return from South Africa in 1915 was a turning point in Indian history as he plunges into India’s politics. Rusted Post Box probes into this part of Gandhi’s life with various philatelic and numismatic issues highlighting the Satyagraha campaigns at Champaran and Kheda along with the Khilafat and Jallianwallah Baug tragedy. Armed with his weapons of Satyagraha and Ahimsa, a national uprising was beginning to take form with Gandhi at its forefront.

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.
