On the occasion of legendary music-composer-singer Rahul Dev Burmans 76th birth anniversary on 27th June, a special commemorative Rs 5/- Postage Stamp featuring two pictures of the musical genious has been launched.
The value of the stamp is more than just loose change. It matches his nickname, 'Panchamda', where Pancham is indicative of the fifth musical note.
The stamp features a picture of RD Burman clicked by Mr. Chaitanya Padukone ( Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award winner 2012 for Film Journalism).
Check out the stamp and other pictures for a blast from the past!
