Enthusiast from southern India reveals his impressive stamp collection

This philatelist from southern India has been collecting stamps and postal covers since he was a child and has now amassed an award-winning collection. Akhil Reddy from Bangalore focuses on Revenues Stamps from Mysore State, Air Mails and early postal covers sent during colonial times. Reddy's hobby went to the next level after he was invited to join the Karnataka Philatelic Association in 2014 where he met senior collectors who gave him some good advice and encouragement. In 2019, his collection scooped the silver medal at a major event in Mangalore.
