Austrian honour for Karunanidhi with a postage stamp for his 90th Birthday

CHENNAI: Austrian government has honoured DMK chief M Karunanidhi with a postage stamp for his 90th birthday, which was celebrated on June 3. 
The stamp on the DMK leader was based on requests from 'individuals' in Austria, who drew the attention of the Austrian postal service on the nonagenarian's contributions in the field of public life, cinema and literature.
The international postage stamp has the image of the DMK leader's face with the band of party flag, red and black and numeral 90, denoting his age as a backdrop.
Don Ashok, who has business interests in Austria, and who is one among the enthusiasts who made it possible, told TOI that it was the result of affectionate gestures of a few towards the party chief. "It is a result of love and affection, lakhs of partymen have for Karunanidhi," he said. The stamp, a limited version, comes at a cost of 90 euros.
