Rewinding History- Waste of Time
by PJ (View MyPage) on Jul 12, 2018 08:46 PM

History has it the winners took way what they wanted. the armies in the yester years were not paid monthly wages in the manner that armed forces are today. soldiers took away what they tjought it is worthwhile ! Comparing modern times with the bygone era is just being too clever !

We still have plenty to go by - but does anyone care here ? the national museum looses treasures even to the extent the Treaty of Ascension of Kashmir, is no where to be found .
At least the Europeans take good care of these treasures and get the place that these deserves !

So be it !

Are they safe in India?

Let the British museum keep the artifacts. There is no guarantee that they will be safe in our country. The famous Salar Jung museum has lost many valuable items, the nobel medal of Tagore was stolen and has not been recovered yet, ancient documents of the Oriental institute were destroyed by the Sambhaji sena, Bismillah Khan's golden shehnai's were stolen and sold by his relatives, the list goes on. India is not a safe place for items of such value. Let us feel the twinge of regret for allowing foreigners to rule us and plunder us due to our lack of unity.
