The Idols Who Travelled Far From Home

A looted statue from a Hindu temple was found displayed in a museum in Texas, of all places. Nepal finally retrieved it, almost 40 years later. India is also trying to dismantle these vast smuggling networks, one antique at a time.

    Ambani providing 700 tonnes of Oxygen per day. Transporting oxygen in special containers. Adani importing 5000 Oxygen cylinders from Saudi Arabia. Kejriwal spent total 150cr on ads from Jan-Mar month. Moral: Ambani & Adani chor hai. Modi unki jeb main hai.

    It’s very sad that Nepalese people who are considered devout Hindus and very straight people steal these precious religious monuments and sale them for couple of hundreds/thousand of RS. Which is not even a lot converted to dollars.. and the black market is beyond belief

    Glad you can see through and was able to bring back the idols that had significance and bhavna behind it.
