Issuance of US Postal Service stamp on Deepawali sign now


Dear Ronald A Robinson,
Chairman - Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee

We are requesting you to issue a US postal stamp commemorating Deepawali, the ancient and joyous festival of lights celebrated universally by Hindu and several other faiths, reflecting the unity and multi-cultural rich diversity of the people of USA and India.

Freedom of religion is a hallmark of United States of America. The U.S. Postal Service has befittingly honored Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Eid by issuing commemorative stamps depicting these festivals. According to former President William J Clinton, Deepawali presents all of us with an opportunity to reflect on the many ways, the talent, the history and the traditions of the Indian people who have contributed to our national life and cultural heritage. President George W Bush, this year- even though he was traveling in Asia-, made sure that Deepawali was celebrated in The White House and he sent personal greetings and felicitations to the community on Deepawali.

Deepawali constitutes a medium to express gratitude and appreciation for the extraordinary diversity that is our nations greatest strength. Deepawali symbolizes our incessant prayers and endeavor to be led from darkness (ignorance) to light (knowledge). It is celebrated to signify the victory of truth and righteousness over evil.

We request you to approve issuance of a US postal stamp commemorating the festival of lights Deepawali.
