Sri Lanka Children FDC

Sri Lanka FDC
Name: International Children's Broadcasting Day
Issue date: 2007 December 9th

International Children's Day of Broadcasting, celebrated on the second Sunday of every December, is a day when broadcasters around the world "Tune in to Kids". They air quality programming for and about children. But most of all, they allow children to be part of the programming process, to talk about their hopes and dreams and share information with their peers.

The Day is a joint initiative of UNICEF and the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Every year, thousands of broadcasters in more than a hundred countries take part in the day, celebrating it in ways that are as unique and special as children themselves.

The Philatelic Bureau of the Department of Posts issued three postage stamps in the Denominations of Rs.5.00 x 3 depicted the race between the Hare and Tortoise. This is the first issue of a series of children stories. These stamps are issued to commemorate the International Children's Broadcasting Day.

All in the jungle knew that tortoises can't run. Therefore all those who live there laughed at the tortoise. Rabbit was the most popular runner. He was very proud of it.

On day rabbit wanted to show his talents to the entire jungle livers. So he invited the tortoise to have a race. Tortoise also agreed.

So these two got read to have a race accompanying there jungle friends. When the race was commenced rabbit ran as fast as lightening. When the tortoise stared to run rabbit was not there. Jungle livers laughed at tortoise for this. But tortoise didn't care it. It moved slowly. The rabbit who ran fast looked back but tortoise was out of sight.

"I can have a nap until he comes" rabbit thought so and slept under a tree.

Tortoise slowly walked along the track. He saw that the rabbit was sleeping under a tree. He silently moved and slowly reached the end. Rabbit woke up after a long sleep; looked here and there in a hurry; ran fast. When he reached the winning post tortoise was sitting there laughing.

When the rabbit knew that he was the loser, he felt ashamed. All were wondered by the tortoise's talent and courageous win.
