The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, visited the United States a few weeks ago for a news conference to discuss trade and economic growth between the two nations. For the first time ever, it is a wonderful honor for us that the Indian Prime Minister received a standing ovation at the White House.
After a few weeks, America finally chooses to give us back our ancient religious and cultural artifacts. There are 105 different antiques in all, all of which were brought in illegally. Now that they’ve taken the initiative to return it, it will help India and America develop positive relations.
The official announcement claims that when it comes to India, antiques come from all over the world. In 105 antiques, 47 are from eastern India, 27 are from the south, 22 are from the center, 6 are from the north, and 3 are from the west.
Out of 105 antiques, almost 50 are connected to religious themes including Hindu, Jain, and Islam. Others are simply of cultural importance. The experts claim that the materials used to create the antiquities were terracotta, stone, metal, and wood. Therefore, they assumed that the antiques were from the second to third century CE through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries CE.
Thanking the US side, the Indian ambassador Mr. Taranjit Singh Sandhu said that “for the people of India, these were not just pieces of art, but part of their living Heritage and culture.”
“Jai Hind Jai Bharat”
