India 1949 Slogan Mark- Local Mail

bulletThe second cover, local mail in the town of Poona (near Bombay), was clearly mailed by a Gandhi admirer to himself.   This is obvious from the fact that he used the two lower values of the Gandhi stamps, six months after they were issued..
bulletThe slogan Sabko Sanmati De Bhagwan is in the front of the cover, in Devanagiri Script (Hindi)- in indigo ink.
bulletAs with many local deliveries at that time, there are no delivery markings on this cover in the back.
