Details:
The 2013 Greenlandic stamp of the year was the stamp with the attractive polar bear with the title “Vulnerable Animals”. Stamp collectors from all over the world voted for their favorite among the 24 stamps issued by TELE-POST in 2013.
It is the artist Naja Abelsen, who has created the beautiful stamp. Naja has earlier been behind no less than 16 stamps issued by TELE-POST. The stamp “Vulnerable Animals” was issued 11th June 2013.

Hi Sswarup,
I am very amazed to read that you were posting FDCs here since 2007! This FDC named Vulnerable Animals is very impressive, considering that is was the 2013 Greenlandic stamp of the year.
In case you are not yet aware of it, I would like to introduce one of my favorite stamp websites, StampWorld.com. I checked out their catalogue for India http://www.stampworld.com/stamps/India/ and here you will see stamps that were issued in India.
