'Indian National Flag unfurled through Philately'

'Indian National Flag unfurled through Philately' 

Here is the book  'Indian National Flag unfurled through Philately' (ISBN: 978-93-81523-39-1), published by Niyogi Books, New Delhi- 110 020, Website:

Decades of hard work, enthusiastic philatelic endeavors and extensive research on the subject for so many years sees the fruition in this book in the form of possibly the first and only authoritative book on the history of the Indian National flag, exposed through philatelic articles, till date.... This book is a must-read for those who are interested in Indian history and those who are curious about the Indian National flag, its background, development and true meaning... I sincerely hope it gets wide acceptance as there isn't a lot of resources available to tell us about the history we should know as proud Indians in a very appealing way... I  can honestly say that it is unputdownable... A bit of history, a bit of patriotism and a bit of storytelling. Just grab a copy and enjoy!

  Friends this is how the intelligentsia have introduced the book...

Prof Bharati Roy, Vice President, Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), Govt of India says, "Sekhar Chakrabarti's innovative book "The Indian National Flag unfurled through Philately" tells us the fascinating history of the Indian flag through the medium of stamps. It is a fine blend of painstaking research and a dedicated pursuit of philately. The stamps reveal a visual message from the past and the text lucidly transports us through the process by which the Indian national flag had its birth. I congratulate the author for giving us this treasure of a book".
 Prof. Dipak Ranjan Das, Former Professor & Head, Dept. of Ancient History & Culture, Calcutta University, Member: West Bengal Heritage Commission says;  “Mr Sekhar Chakrabarti, an acclaimed philatelist, has taken upon himself the challenging task of narrating the history of Indian flags from the days of yore, deriving information from an unconventional source.  It is like the bow of Ulysses which could not be drawn by any weaker hand.  He weaves the colourful history of Indian flags gathering data primarily from philatelic materials.  The successful completion of this daring venture earns for Mr Chakrabarti a permanent niche in the world of historians engaged in vexillological research”.
The book is published by Niyogi Books, New Delhi. ISBN: 978-93-81523-39-1. Price @ Rs. 495, $17.
