New Delhi: Oman Post, part of Asyad Group, and India Post launched a Joint Stamp issue that commemorates the cultural ties and longstanding friendship between the Sultanate of Oman and the Republic of India.
The joint stamp launch coincided with the state visit of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik to the Republic of India.
Members of the executive management from both Oman Post and India Post attended the event.
The stamp highlights the strong economic and deep cultural connections between Oman and India.
The stamp’s theme celebrates the folk dances of Oman and India, encapsulating the rich, shared cultural heritage. It features iconic dance forms from both countries, symbolizing the vibrancy, tradition, and artistic expression that underscore Oman-India relations.
The joint stamp depicts “Al Razha”, a traditional form characterized by its graceful movements, intricate footwork and the use of swords. On the other stamp face, the Indian cultural dance depicted is “Dandiya Rass”, a popular folk dance from Gujarat, India, known for its energetic and rhythmic movements performed by both men and women in their native costumes using sticks.
This illustrative portrayal is not only a nod to the historical links, but also honors the ongoing cultural exchange and mutual admiration between the two nations. – ONA
