From the issues of Stamps of India Collectors Companion

Part 79, Issue # 188 September 30, 2004

The Part 66 of this column in the issue # 154 of February 5, 2004, began with M G Pittie did it again! He once again flouted all norms and rules that are applicable to all except him and his friends! Pittie holds no office in the Philatelic Congress of India yet appointed Subrata Chakrabarti as national commissioner from India in January 2004.

Well, it took about six months for Pittie to publicly admit this fact - in the AGM held at Ahmedabad on August 8, 2004. Earlier in the AGM, Dilip Shah publicly disowned having any knowledge whatsoever regarding appointment of commissioner or participation of Indian exhibits at Hong Kong 2004. Joining issue on this, yours truly asked all those who were occupying the dais to immediately step down if they were not even aware of appointments of commissioners in PCIs name what to say of maintaining the roster of commissioners!

We welcome this courageous move by Pittie and suggest him to come clean on everything and start afresh with a clean slate. This will not only be in his best interests but also in the best interests of philately.
