A hobby is a fine pastime. It keeps us busy. It provides a comfortable outlet to our energy to express itself in the most natural way. A hobby is anything a person loves to do without any pressure. Stamp-collecting is my hobby. I feel that a stamp is not just a slip of paper that takes a letter from one town of country importance. I realized this fact when I was a student at the primary level. Since then, I have been collecting stamps. I have now five albums containing stamps of various countries. I have fixed them year-wise and country-wise. In stamps, I find the history of many countries. On stamps, I see famous man, writers, scientists, soldiers, politicians and famous incidents. These stamps though small and minute, contain knowledge that is vast and important.
