    I consider myself an amateur philatelist. I was collecting stamps when I was very young and am now coming out of hibernation and restarting my hobby. I collect India, Machins, Australia, Great Britain and a few other countries. I also collect FDCs and postal stationery. Currently my interest is in completing my India post independence and basic machins.

    I usually share my stories on my blog The Amateur Philatelist and share my pics on other social media forums like Instagram (@theamateurphilatelist) and Twitter (@amateurstamps). Hoping to connect with like-minded people here and perhaps even find some interesting stamp exchanges, as the name suggests :).

    Hi, Manish!

    Very nice website. Cool feature on removing stamps! I mostly just collect USA and a little Newfoundland. But all collecting is interesting; always something new to learn.

    Hello Manish, first welcome to the forum. I am impressed with your website blogs, I hope to see more. I am currently in the UK and will keep an eye open for Machins if you are interested? Possibly we can make an exchange?

    Regards, James.

    Thanks James, appreciate your kind words. I would love to exchange with you. I have a lot of Australian stamps on paper available if you are interested. My machin album pages of high value, security features, double-heads, NVI and Regionals are almost completely empty so it would be great to get my hands on those. Let me know what interests you.

    Welcome to the forums, Manish! I will also be very interested in your blogs... these forums are probably as close as I will get to starting one. As is often said: "my time is not my own" but I am trying to turn that around as well...:joyful:

    Thanks :)

    I have always believed that a thousand mile journey begins with a single step... let me know if I can be of any help in supporting you to take that first step towards blogging. I have helped a few colleagues at work take the plunge and it's very gratifying :)

    Hi Manish,
    Enjoyed your Blog as well, specially your taste in Single Malt. Can't beat Glenmoangie. At least for my taste. (Having a wee dram as I type this out)
    Bottoms Up!
