7. Other assorted stamps from India and Abroad

Winston Churchill

William Shakespeare

Konkan Railway. This stamp juxtaposed with the railway centenary stamp on the left speaks volumes about how much Indian Railways has evolved over the years. But we still lag behind countries like Japan, France, Korea, Germany etc and even China in terms of railway technology. Major catching up still to be done !!! ...

...I hope we can catch up and I will replace this illusory  stamp with a genuine one someday!!!

4x4x4 Rubik's Revenge Cube

3x3x3 Rubik's Standard Cube

My cube collection (Eastsheen & Famwealth make)

5x5x5 Professor's Cube

2x2x2 Pocket Cube

World's Top selling puzzle by Hungarian Prof. Erno Rubik on Hungarian stamp.

There are approximately forty-three quintillion (thats 43 followed by 18 zeros) permutations possible by turning a 3x3x3 Rubiks Cube. If every permutation of a 57-millimeter Rubik's Cube were lined up end to end, it would stretch out approximately 261 light years. Thats as far as Spica in the constellation Virgo. :) What about higher order cubes?

And the Grand Finale...

Guru Dutt
