A cover from India, sent by Elton D’Souza of Goa.

On the cover, Elton affixed one minisheet with two stamps featuring Indian Institute of Science issued in 2008. The postmark date is unclear, but the location is Margao.

Inside are four minisheets. I scanned the first three together because they are smaller in size compared to the fourth one. The top minisheet contains one stamp – it features the Rath Yatra celebration in Puri, Orissa.  The middle minisheet is a joint-issue between India and Mexico that features Kalbelia Dance from Rajashthan and Jarabe Tapatio Dance from Mexico. The bottom minisheet contains two stamps that feature Rabindranath Tagore, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.

The fourth minisheet is a huge one! It commemorates 100 years of airmail and was issued in conjunction with World Philatelic Exhibition 2011. Thanks a lot Elton for all these minisheets!
