Prime Minister Narendra Modi will bring home 157 artefacts and antiquities, which were handed over to India by the US during his visit, with both he and President Joe Biden expressing commitment to strengthening efforts to combat theft, illicit trade and trafficking of cultural objects.

While nearly half of the artefacts (71) are cultural, the other half consists of figurines related to Hinduism (60), Buddhism (16) and Jainism (9), an official statement said on Saturday.

Modi conveyed his deep appreciation for the repatriation of antiquities to India by the United States.

The list of 157 artefacts includes a diverse set of items ranging from the one-and-a-half metre bas relief panel of Revanta in sandstone of the 10th CE to the 8.5 cm tall, exquisite bronze Nataraja from the 12th CE.

The Modi government has brought back more ancient Indian treasures than the four decades before it, they claimed

Referring to the items handed over to India by the US during Modi’s ongoing trip, the official statement said they largely belong to the period of 11th CE to 14th CE as well as historic antiquities such as the copper anthropomorphic object of 2000 BC or the terracotta vase from the 2nd CE.

The bronze collection primarily contains ornate figurines of the well-known postures of Lakshmi Narayana, Buddha, Vishnu, Siva Parvathi and the 24 Jain Tirthankaras and the less common Kankala murti, Brahmi and Nandikesa besides other unnamed deities and divine figures.

The statement noted that the motifs include religious sculptures from Hinduism– three headed Brahma, chariot driving Surya, Vishnu and his consorts, Siva as Dakshinamurti and dancing Ganesha among others.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unveil the ‘Statue of Equality’ of Bhagavad Ramanuja in Muchintal village on the city outskirts of Hyderabad on February 5, said Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar Swamy.

Addressing a press conference at his ashram in Muchintal on Monday, the spiritual leader said the statue of Ramanujucharya, who founded the Vishishtadvaita philosophy, would be unveiled in a grand ceremony to be held from February 2 to 12 next year.

The seer stated that he met Modi on September 18 in Delhi and invited him to unveil the statue.

“The Prime Minister assured me that he would attend the event without fail. We are making all arrangements for Modi’s visit on February 5,” Jeeyar Swamy said.

He added that he had extended invitations to President Ram Nath Kovind, Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu, Union ministers Amit Shah, Nitin Gadkari, and several others by meeting them personally during his recent Delhi visit and all of them assured to grace the event.

Last week Jeeyar Swamy  met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Stalin and extended the invitation for the statue opening ceremony .

The 65.8-metre (216-feet) statue being constructed is coming up on 40 acres inside the 200 acre-ashram with an estimated cost of Rs 216 crore.


Supreme Court rejects Padmanabha Swamy Temple Trust’s plea to exempt it from audit of 25 years

The Supreme Court on Wednesday declined a plea filed by Shree Padmanabha Swamy Temple Trust seeking to exempt it from the audit of 25 years as ordered by the top court last year.

A bench headed by Justice U U Lalit said the audit should be completed as early as possible, preferably within three months.

“It is clear that the audit contemplated was not intended to be confined to the temple only but with respect to the trust.

The Administrative Committee of the Shree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvanantha puram  had on September 17 told the apex court that it is in great financial stress and the offerings are not sufficient to meet the expenses, while seeking an audit of the temple-related trust run by the Travancore royal family.

All temples in Kerala are closed and while this temple’s monthly expenses are Rs 1.25 crore, “we are able to hardly get 60-70 lakh rupees. Therefore, we have sought certain directions,” senior advocate R Basant, appearing for the committee had said.
