The mourning of Nehru

Here is a stamp I like very much : the one issued at the death of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1964. Independantist leader in British India alongside Gandhi and Prime Minister of the Republic of India from 1947 to his death.

The picture is strong since it links the leader with his people : a great man watching far away in front of an attentive crowd.
