The occult has always held a fascination for the human mind. Whether it is deemed an art or a mathematically accurate science, the fascination remains. From the days of Vedic astrology and the Delphic Oracle to current days, we have an inherent curiosity about ourselves, our past and future.
The twelve zodiac signs are represented by figures and symbols and associated with constellations and planets and their old Greek or Roman or Indian legends. Without any partisanship on the veracity or otherwise of astrology and the occult arts, the Department of Posts had issued a set of stamps on zodiac astrological signs. The designs of the stamps are rooted in Indian folk art and depict the 12 zodiac signs- against four base colours which reflect the elements of earth, air, fire and water. India Post 2013 Calendar
is inspired by these postage stamps.
India Post 2013 Calendar is available at various Philatelic Bureaus in the country at the price of Rs. 250/- .
