Background;
Ancient Indian sculptures, manuscripts, maps and artefacts are stolen and find
their way into the international art-markets and are sold off for millions of
dollars. The history of India is being illegally smuggled out to private-collectors
and museums across the world.
The artefacts that have returned to India have been mostly presented as gifts
by other nations. Among these, is the Sripuranthan Nataraja, returned to India
by Australian Prime Minister.
