The stamp was unveiled at the Calcutta Sports Journalists club. It was a dream come true for Jhulan who had a hobby of collecting postage stamps during his childhood days. <p></p> <p></p>The 35-year old cherished the honour. <strong>She also took pride in being the fourth Indian</strong> to get featured on the postage stamp after Mother Teresa, Rajeev Gandhi and Sachin Tendulkar. Goswami spoke to <em>observerbd</em> exclusively and said: "In the modern era, postcards and inland letters are hardly used and their place have been taken by e mails and courier service but that does not diminish the value of the postal stamp." <p></p> <p></p>"Time has changed and new technologies have come. I shall preserve this stamp and cherish every moment of it. It is a great honour. We can't devalue the heritage stamps. It was an initiative by the Vision of Bengal. During recent tri-series in India, my permission was taken when I was playing a match against England and <strong>it is a great honour.</strong> It was an initiative by the Vision of Bengal.

Sachin is my idol and I started playing cricket after watching him play. I am very small against these great personalities."
