US ‘Stamps’ on Hindu Deities Sparks Debate
Utpal Borpujari
Jan 21st`2010  DHNS

New Delhi : Seven ‘stamps’ issued by a private company in the United States depicting Hindu gods and goddesses as well as the Sai Baba
has stoked a controversy with claims and counter claims regarding whether they actually are postage stamps.

While the company behind the products has said they can be used as valid US postage stamps, apparently through a system that allows
private firms to issue stamps with popular images on them, the stamps do not find any mention in the official US Postal Service (USPS) catalogue.

Hindu organisations in the US have welcomed the issuance of the ‘stamps’, carrying images of Sri Krishna, Shiva-Parvathi, Sai Baba, Murugan,
Lord Venkateshwara, Vinayaka (Ganesh) and Lakshmi, but online debates are arguing whether they are ‘real’ postage stamps or not.
Atlanta-based company USA-Postage.com, which has issued the ‘stamps’, says they are valid postage stamps.

“Usa-postage.com allows customers to put their favourite digital images on valid US postage.
The high-quality, adhesive-backed postage is produced using advanced printing technology within a short timeframe,” the company says.

The ‘stamps’ have been customised for the Indian community in America and it is for the first time ‘real’ US postage is depicting
the “exclusive designs” of deities, organisations like Hindu Janajagruti Samiti have claimed.

The ‘stamps’, priced at 44 cents each, can also be bought on a commemorative sheet priced at $18.99.
“We are proud to serve the Indian community in USA with postage that reflects its culture, heritage and religious beliefs,”
USA-Postage.com, which targets small businesses, home offices and individuals in the Indian community in the country, has said.

However, online debates, on websites like boardreader.com are questioning the claim of these being real postage stamps. “It is a novelty where anyone can have his or her photo and use it as a postal stamp, like in Franking machines where the logo can be replaced by any image of your choice and still the letter can travel to its destination” even as the USPS collects the revenues under a licensing system, one post argues.

Another post says, “I do not know what to make out of it but I can assure you that I am smelling a rat. Vishwa Hindu Parishad has spread the following news all across India that US government has issued postal stamps to facilitate the Indian community in the US (sic).”

Profits from Sale of Sai Baba Postages in USA,
 being Donated to Indian Temples

PTI
Monday 01st Feb`2010

Washington : Targeting the large number of Hindus in the United States, an Atlanta-based company headed by an Indian-American
has launched a series of custom-made postage stamps depicting Hindu gods and goddesses.

The first set of such postage stamps in denomination of 44 cents was launched in January by usa-postage.com, the Atlanta-based firm,
depicting Sai Baba, Lord Venkateshwara, Lakshmi, Murugan, Vinayaka, Shiva-Parvathi and Sri Krishna.

Such postage stamps depicting Hindu gods and goddesses have been launched for the first time in the US taking
the benefit of a six-year-old law of the US Postal Service (USPS) that permit issuing of customised postages.

“These postages have not been issued by the US Postal Service, but these are as good as stamps and is legally valid.
We do not call them stamps. We call them as postages.
But these can be used as any other normal stamp,” Roy Betts, spokesman of USPS told PTI.

“Commemorative sheets from usa-postage.com are valid US Postage produced by a technology call PC Postage.
This is the first company to offer customised postage with divine images that have specific appeal to
the Indian community living in the US,” said Ennar Chilakapati, vice president, usa-postage.com.

Since its quiet launch, usa-postage.com has received tremendous response from the large Hindu community in the United States.
More than 1.5 million Hindus live in the US.

Mr. Chilakapati said he has been receiving requests for postages from countries like Britain too where people want to keep it as a souvenir.

Mr. Chilakapati said Profits from the Sale of such postages are being Donated to Indian Temples.

“Customised postage sheets are ideal for giving as gift items. Indian community living in the U.S. can order online as a gift item,” he said.
