MAHAPEX – 2016:

The 12th Philatelic Exhibition of Maharashtra Circle, MAHAPEX – 2016 was held from 16.01.2016 to 18.01.2016 at Nashik. Tradition, culture and modernity were reflected in the Exhibition through about 400 exhibition frames, stalls of various dealers and cultural activities.

On the first day of the Exhibition (i.e. 16.01.2016), two Special Covers one each on Pandav Leni Caves (Buddhist Caves) and Smt. Kusum Dhirubhai Mehta (Internationally renowned Indian woman Philatelist) were released followed by two each on the following two days (i.e. on 17.01.2016 & 18.01 2016).

Brief Description of the two Special Covers released on 17.01.2016):

i)Special Cover on “Kalaram Mandir”(meaning“Black Ram Temple”):

The Mythology:

Mythology has it that, during the fourteen years of “Vanvaas” (meaning “exiled to live in the forests”) Lord Ram, his wife Sita and his younger brother who had accompanied him in exile stayed at a place called “Panchvati” on the northern banks of the river Godavari where Lord Ram is said to have resided during a part of his period in exile.

The Kalaram Temple and the legend behind its construction:

The Kalaram Temple is an old Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Ram in the “Panchvati” area of Nasik city in Maharashtra, India and is the most important Hindu shrine in the city (“Panchvati” literally means “a garden of five Banyan trees”). It is the biggest and the simplest among all the temples situated in Nashik.

The temple gets its name from the decked black stone idol of Lord Ram which is black in colour.  The temple also has the statues of Sita (the wife of Ram) and Laxman (Ram’s brother), both also in black stone.

The construction of the temple in around 1788 was financed by Sardar Rangarao Odhekar which took almost 12 years to complete at a cost of around Rs. 23,00,000/-.

Legend has it that, Sardar Rangarao Odhekar dreamt that the statue of Rama in black colour was lying immersed on the banks of the Godavari River, which he retrieved from the river and had installed in the Temple which he got constructed at the place.

 The temple premises has a walled enclosure comprising of 96 pillars. Entrance to the temple is from the East.

The Kalaram temple is about 70 feet high and has a gold-plated roof. Nearby is the “Sita Gufa” (meaning the “Cave of Sita”, where she had resided during this period of Ram’s “Vanvaas”. Also, there is an old tree which has Lord Dattatreya’s footprint impressions engraved on a stone and a grove of large Banyan trees. Kalaram temple is almost similar in architectural style and layout to the Trimbakeshwar Temple (Trimbakeshwar is the source of the river Godavari) and in its premises houses temples dedicated to Lord Vithala and Lord Ganesha. The main entrance of the temple has a statue of Lord Hanuman which is also black.

On 02.03.1930, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar staged a Gandhian style “Satyagrah” (meaning “insistence of a right through peaceful means”) to allow entry and the right to worship to the Depressed classes. After this peaceful agitation, the right to worship has been allowed to all Hindus irrespective of caste or creed.

ii)Special Cover on “Nashik the City of Grapes”:

Nashik is the third largest city in Maharashtra, after Mumbai and the twin cities of Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. The city is situated at the foothills of the mountains of the Western Ghats on the banks of the Godavari River. Nashik lies on the western edge of the Deccan Plateau which is a volcanic formation. All over the district, lime nodules and stones are found leftover indicators of volcanic activity.

Several famous Hindu temples are located in Nashik – “Panchvati” which houses a temple complex having the Kalaram Temple (dedicated to Lord Ram, which is also a pilgrimage site with the “Kumbh Mela”, the largest peaceful gathering in the World involving over 100 million people in the last “Maha Kumbh” in 2013, takes place once every 12 years in rotation with Haridwar, Allahabad and Ujjain), Sundarnarayan Temple (dedicated to Lord Vishnu), Trimbakeshwar temple (dedicated to Lord Shiva houses a Shiva Linga and is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas located all over India and is also the source of the river Godavari), Someshwar Temple (one of the oldest temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and Lord Hanuman, Kapaleshwar Temple (one of the oldest Shiva Temples in Nashik having no icon of Nandi, the Bull, which is an unusual feature for the temples of Lord Shiva), Muktidham Temple (It has replicas of the 12 Jyotirlingas built with the dimensions of the original deities, among all other important  Hindu Gods and Goddesses).

Nashik is also, known as the “City of Grapes” and is also called the “Wine Capital of India”.

Nashik is famous for its table grapes. Since 1925, grapes have been cultivated in huge numbers and are presently being exported to Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Nashik has a favourable climate for growing wine grapes. In 1994, Sula Vineyards was established and Nashik has not looked back ever since. Nashik has around 50% of the almost 100 wineries in India, some prominent names being – Reveilo, York, Grover’s Zampa, Chateau D’ori, Charosa, Nine Hills, Chateau Royale, Tiger Hills Vineyards et al. Being a wine enthusiast, it was but natural that I would visit Sula Vineyards during our trip to Nasik, Deolali & Igatpuri. We had a sumptuous lunch at one of the restaurants on site at Sula Vineyards and I had my favourite “Late Harvest Chenin Blanc” which is a desert wine, because I get to tell everyone about how the Late Harvest wine was first made by Christian monks in Germany:

At the Rheingau Vineyards of Schloss Johannisberg, the monks were not allowed to pick the grapes until he Abbot of Fulda gave his permission. Since 1718, permission to start the harvest at Johannisberg was granted in writing from the Prince-Bishop of Fulda by means of a so-called autumn courier – Herbstkurier.

 During the harvest of 1775, the abbot was away attending a Synod. That year the grapes were ripening early and some of them started to rot on the vine. The monks becoming concerned, dispatched a rider to ask for the Abbot’s permission to pick the grapes. By the time the rider returned, the monks believed that the harvest was lost as “noble rot” had set in, but they went ahead with the harvest anyway. To their amazement, rather than being a “failed produce” the wine was one of the finest they had ever tasted and this was the beginning of the Spatlese-style (literally meaning “late harvest”) wines. Interestingly, the delayed rider came to be fondly nicknamed the “Spatlesereiter” (meaning the “Late Harvest Horseman”).

For a Souvenir, I got myself a deck of playing cards which I found quite amusing and irresistible. The deck is titled “Satori – Merlot Mabec” and there is an explanation – “Satori is a Zen term meaning “Sudden Enlightenment”.  In other words, “a glass of finely crafted Malbec has the power to connect you with the Universal Consciousness”. (I hope I got that right. Apologies to the Zen Masters!!)
