The first postcrossing meeting of Prayagraj was orchestrated by “The Desi Philately Club” on 22-2-22 (22-02-2022).

In this, a post card exhibition was organized in the Philately Bureau in collaboration with Prayagraj Division of the Department of Posts. It was inaugurated by Shri. Rajesh Kumar Srivastava, Senior Postmaster, Head Post Office, Prayagraj. The program was promoted by Public Relations Inspector, Head Post Office, Mr. Rajesh Verma.

On this occasion the club director Dr. Aditya Singh along with Mr. Anil Rastogi, Mr. Umendra Kumar Jain, Dr. Maneeshi Bansal, Mr. M. Gulrez, Adv M. Shariq, Mr. Hamza Reshad, Adv. Aman Bhardwaj, Mr. Joy Jyoti Ghosh, Mr. Kireetee Sarkar and Mr. Nooman. played an important role.

“The Desi Philately Club” also released 150 commemorative postcards that were sent to stamp lovers around the world.

This date had many specialties, the date 22 February 2022 being considered a rare date, as it is not only a palindrome but also an ambigram. If you notice, it can be written numerically as 22/02/2022, so it is a palindrome date, it is also an ambigram because it will look the same when you turn it upside down in the mirror. This rare date fell on Tuesday and people also called it Twosday.

Postcrossing is an online portal that allows its members to send and receive postcards from all over the world. The project’s tag line is “Send a postcard and get a postcard back from a random person somewhere in the world!” Its members, also known as postcrossers, send postcards to other members and return postcards from other random postcrossers. One always wonders where postcards come from. Its membership is free.

As of January 2022, Postcrossing has more than 8 million members in 208 countries, who have registered and exchanged over 60 million postcards that have traveled over 330 billion kilometers.
It currently has 10,838 members in India and has sent 3.8 lakh cards and received 3.8 lakh cards in India.
