Bhutan postage stamp featured Sikkim as an Independent Country

Bhutan introduced its first postage stamps in 1962 (10th October) and in its inaugural issue it featured seven definitive stamps on different denominations. The first stamp series featured the introduction of Bhutan life style. One of the stamps released finds a special place among the stamp collectors of Sikkim. Sikkim, though once an independent country is today a proud part of Indian Union. Sikkim became part of India in 1975. 
The 15ch postage stamp issued from the country of Bhutan is probably the only postage stamps in the world of philately that showed Sikkim as an Independent Country. You can closely see an Independent Sikkim, below it India while East Pakistan now Bangladesh just beneath it. Bhutan is right to Sikkim in white while Tibet on its top.
It must be noted that in 1962, when this definitive stamp was released Sikkim was still an independent country.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
