Asia-India-Ahmedabad This is a postcard I purchased at Sabarmati Ashram the Gandhi's headquarters from 1917 to 1930 during the long struggle for Indian Independence. I was in this city for work so had one day to see some of its charms. With a population of over 5 million it was near impossible to find a postcard . I did find none of the city itself or the state of Gujarat. I would suspect it is not a state with a big tourist draw.
|Unfortunately I had to cover up some of the text on the back of the card. I mailed this at the GPO in Ahmedabad. There was a philatelic counter, but it was not manned. So after a few minutes I discovered it was in fact within the Post office itself. So it was there I was able to choose from a good selection of current Indian Issues.|
This is the inside of the Post office. A very busy office .
