Gandhi 150: The Global Indian through Postal Stamps

Update on 22 Sep 2019: Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary celebrations were kicked of in October last year and will continue until late 2020, a two year long series of commemorative and remembrance events celebrating the father of India's independence movement. Several countries and philately companies are issuing postal stamps on Gandhi. I will update the list and also add pictures as more get added. Leave a comment if there's more information to share with fellow collectors.
