Hindu Gods On U.S. Stamps

February 2nd, 2010
WASHINGTON, USA, February 1, 2010: Hindu Gods have made their way into U.S. mail, with an Atlanta based company headed by an Indian American launching a series of legally valid custom-made postage stamps.

The first of these 44 cent stamps featuring Sri Krishna, Shiva-Parvathi, Lakshmi, Lord Venkateshwara, Murugan, Vinayaka and Sai Baba were issued by last month.

The company made use of a six-year-old U.S. Postal Service (USPS) rule that permits issue of customized postages to launch the series. “These postages have not been issued by the U.S. Postal Service, but these are as good as stamps and are legally valid. We do not call them stamps. We call them postages. But these can be used as any other normal stamp,” a USPS spokesman said.
