Recently there was some news that stamps may be issued on living personalities and icons, like film stars, sports person etc. What do philatelists have to say on it? Is this practice of doing so is correct or not?
I would like to express my views; there may be some positive and negative aspects of it. Yes, we may get to see our favorite film and sport stars on stamps and enjoy it. Of course, we may also see lots of Political stars! But what when a Film star who is an icon today may be engaged or accused in any un-lawful acts, what about the stamps already issued on him. Say if a Sportsman is caught of consuming drugs to enhance his performance. What will the govt. do? Withdraw the stamp?
There may be lot of political pressure play in issuing stamps of personalities. So will it be a good idea to issue stamps on living Persons?
I would like your comments on the same.
