My Hobby

A hobby is an activity which is pursued in leisure time, mainly for recreation and replenishing the energy lost through work.

There are several hobbies which one may pursue, such as photography, stamp collecting, reading, etc. A hobby should be pursued according to one’s nature of work and aptitude.

Certain hobbies such as photography are very expensive. Hobbies like gardening require hard physical work. Reading requires some serious intellectual exercise.

My hobby is stamp collecting. Every country in the modern world issues stamps off and on. Stamps are used to commemorate the birthday of renowned personalities of the nation, to mark some important events, and so on others occasions.

            Stamps are of different colors, sizes, and designs. They contain pictures of birds, persons, animals, plants, factories, etc. They mention their fiscal value and sometimes dates, months, and years.

            There are several philately societies concerned with the activity of stamp collecting. I’m a member of one such society known as the Indian Philately Society.

            I have about five thousand postage stamps. I have arranged them in albums according to the countries belonging to different continents. I have also made a list of stamps of different kinds such as scenery, birds, animals, people, scientific inventions, and discoveries, those relating to historical and geographical spheres, etc. I’m happy with my collection of stamps and very proud of them too.
