Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has announced that special edition stamps would also be released soon to honor former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and Bihar’s mountain man Dashrath Manjhi.
These postal stamps will be available for sale in the post offices for Rs. 5 per stamp.
While this is a big honor for Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui whose movie; Manjhi-the ‘Mountain Man’ released last week says,
‘I feel so honored to have been a part of this movie. It’s a great gesture from the government and I personally thank them to have bestow such a honor for a man like Dashrathji who single-handedly carved the future of his village in a small district in Bihar. I am lucky I got to play a part of this man who is a true hero in all sense.’
