A book Post Haste: Quintessential India written by B.G. Verghese was released on 1 May 2014 at India International Centre in Delhi.

B.G.Verghese decided to illustrate the book with stamps rather than photographs or drawings. He opined that stamps commemorate events such as winning the Kargil War or a monument to a great hero.

Post Haste offers a 350-page magical tour through its space and time. It is also possibly the only book in the world that tells the story of a country through postage stamps.
