A page from my stamp album - India

Soon after the partition of British India, both India and Pakistan did not have their own stamps. While India continued to use the pre-partition stamps for a while, Pakistan used the same stamps with an "Pakistan" over print for almost a year. India issued a set of three stamps on 21st November 1947 as its first indigenous stamps.
