Karnapex 2024, the 13th state-level philatelic exhibition known as the Festival of Stamps, captivates enthusiasts with a mesmerizing collection of stamps that spans two centuries.

The four-day exhibition, held from January 5 to 8 at the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, unfolds a visual feast for philatelists in the city. A remarkable display of stamps dating back to 1832 is showcased, featuring a total of 700 frames, each containing a multitude of stamps and postal covers. Additionally, 17 stalls are set up to enhance the overall experience.

The inaugural day of Karnapex 2024 revolved around the theme ‘History and Culture of Karnataka.’ Highlighting the historical significance of the event, a half-anna piece in red, dating back to 1832, stands out as the oldest stamp on display. Furthermore, four cancellations are issued, each dedicated to Nadaprabhu Kempegowda, Rani Kittur Channamma, wildlife, and Karnapex 2024 itself, available for collectors throughout the exhibition.

During the launch ceremony of ‘Karnapex 2024,’ Nadoja Dr. Mahesh Joshi, president of Kannada Sahitya Parishad, urged the postal department to release more stamps focusing on Karnataka and its accomplished individuals. Currently, the postal department has released 65 stamps, but Dr. Joshi advocates for the issuance of at least 700 stamps to honour the state’s heroes and historic landmarks.

Adding to the commemorative releases, covers featuring Puneeth Rajkumar, Sir M Visvesvaraya setting up FKCCI, 100 years of Carlton House, and milestones like ‘100 years of Lalit Mahal’ and ‘Mysore Sandal Soap’ are also unveiled at the exhibition.
