The Ministry of Communication has been requested to commemorate the Centenary celebration by brining out a postage stamp carrying the picture of Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh. As is obvious, the task we have taken in hand is stupendous, and we can never hope to execute it successfully without the active support and whole-hearted cooperation of all the educational institutions, co-operative bodies, local self-govt. employees of various schools and colleges, and all such persons who hold Bhausaheb in reverence. We request all of you to come out with donations to help us in this marathon endeavour.
