How technology is helping a secret group recover India’s smuggled temple statues and antiques

VIJAY-NANDA-ANTIQUE

While the country was burning with explosive issues like women’s entry in certain temples and banishment of fireworks from certain others, a group of determined individuals were burning the midnight oil, in this case the internet, to restore an altogether different kind of pride.

The India Pride Project (IPP) initiated by an informal body of volunteers from across the world aims to bring back India’s smuggled temple heritage and antiques.

says Anuraag Saxena, Co-founder of IPP.

Anuraag and Vijay Kumar, an avid heritage enthusiast and blogger of Indian art, founded IPP, which is part of a growing movement worldwide that is prompting museums, art collectors, and world leaders to restitute these items to India.

Anuraag’s day job involves being the Asia-Pacific CEO for World Education Foundation, UK, and Vijay’s involves being a shipping professional. Both are based in Singapore.

India an easy target

Until last year, no one knew of their secret life as sleuths. A keen enthusiast of India’s culture and heritage, Anuraag says he got talking to like-minded people over social media and realised that there was no formal government body to stop these smugglers. Speaking to me on the sidelines of the INKTalks conference in Mumbai last year, Anuraag said, “In the international art market, India is a no-consequence zone. Unscrupulous art dealers and smugglers feel it is safest to loot art and antiques from India than say from other South Asian countries.” This assumption bothered him a lot.

Citing an example of how art has been used for money laundering for decades, Anuraag said, “I was a private banker working for a Swiss bank so I know what I am saying. If you have to carry a million dollars across an airport, you cannot carry it in your suitcase. Customs will catch you. But if you buy a million-dollar painting, roll it up and carry it with you no one’s going to stop you.” In fact, according to a report in The New York Times, “The so-called Panama Papers — the leak of 11.5 million files from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca — have given us a deep look into the many ways offshore shell companies are used to conceal the ownership of art…,” indicating how art is used to manipulate markets, evade taxes or launder money.

Treasure hunt

Coming back to our desi James Bonds, as Anuraag alludes in jest to the people involved with IPP, the penny dropped when Vijay was able to trace the whereabouts of Nataraja, the presiding deity at Sripurantthan Temple in the Brihadeeswarar Temple complex on the banks of River Cauvery. The Nataraja was smuggled out of the country a few years ago and landed in Australia. It was displayed in its National Museum without the knowledge that it was stolen.

“Something magical happened in September 2014. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot came to India and brought back the Nataraja,” Anuraag says in his talk. The significance of the Nataraja can be gauged by the fact that in 1954 when the Indian government introduced the rupees thousand notes, it printed the picture of the Brihadeeswarar Temple complex on it.

The Brihadeeswarar Temple is the largest (and most famous) of a set of temple complexes built by RajaRaja Chola. Many of these temples have been victims of loot. Sripurantthan Temple was also made by the same ruler 50 kms away from Brihadeeswarar.says Anuraag. Once they had the momentum going on social media, slowly, some international museums and art galleries started realising that they were sitting on “chori ka maal.” Soon international media started waking up to the fact and pressurising their governments to return the stolen goods.

But the statues were not coming back. Until of course, when the Australian PM came to India and handed over the Nataraja. This was followed by the former Canadian Prime Minister returning some precious statues that found themselves in his country. When German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited India in October 2015, she came bearing the 10th century Durga idol, which had gone missing from a temple in Kashmir over two decades ago and was later found in her country.

says Anuraag, referring to the Nataraja that was reinstated in the temple.

However, there’s one question that continues to stump him: ‘When will you bring back the Kohinoor?’ “You know so many people have asked me this question, and incredibly most of them have been women,” he told me after I asked him the same question.

Beyond hollow patriotism

The IPP members, most of whom prefer to work in anonymity because of the inherent dangers involved in such operations, collaborate with government agencies through back channels to piece together the missing trails of many such valuable statues and works of art. According to Anuraag,Anuraag, who moved to Singapore in 1998, but has retained his Indian passport, says that thinking of doing such a thing a decade ago would have been impossible. “It is because of technology and the Internet that we have been able to even think of venturing into it,” he adds.

This month, the IPP is doing a road show in three cities in India – New Delhi, Bengaluru, and Chennai – to raise awareness about India’s stolen heritage and show people that there are way better things to take pride in than just hollow patriotism.

The last few days have seen high drama as Tamil Nadu government made attempts to get all the cases of idol smuggling out of the hands of an officer largely seen as honest and fearless. The government informed the Madras High Court on 1 August that it had taken a decision to transfer all the pending cases to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

“If idols are missing from each and every temple, then we will have to ask the CBI to probe into it. Why should there be a HR&CE department at all?” A Madras High Court judge asked.

Duo caught at Chandigarh airport with 3.86kg gold biscuits in shoes

Vijay.nanda.mumbai.smuggling

Two air passengers returning to Chandigarh from Sharjah were caught with 3.86kg gold, valued at Rs 1.2 crore, at the Chandigarh International Airport on Monday.

The passengers, who are in their 20s and hail from Ludhiana and Jalandhar, had concealed the gold, in the form of 24-carat gold biscuits, in their shoes.

They had left for Sharjah from Amritsar on August 31 and landed in Chandigarh via Air India flight 188 on their return. Their names have been withheld due to ongoing investigation, said Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) officials.

Sources said the duo was apprehended on secret information after they crossed the green channel without declaring the gold.

To be prosecuted under Customs Act

The youths were arrested and booked under the Customs Act, 1962, and will be produced in a Mohali court on Tuesday. This is the third case out of a total of 45 seizures this year to prosecute gold smugglers.

According to the customs law, a smuggler is prosecuted only if the gold seizure is above Rs 1 crore. Otherwise, it is a bailable offence and smugglers face adjudication process at the zonal commissioner level.

Other two cases where gold recoveries reached the Mohali district courts include seizure of 8kg gold on January 30 this year, and the recovery of 7kg gold from a Bathinda man on July 3. In both cases, the DRI had made the seizures.

Nearly 50kg gold worth around Rs 15 crore has been seized at the Chandigarh airport since international operations began here in September 2016.

Why smuggling is rampant vijay nanda

Gold smuggling is rampant due to its high purity and lesser price in middle-east markets as compared to India. The price difference can be as high as Rs 5 lakh per kg. The smugglers or their couriers disguise themselves as genuine passengers to escape the customs duty.

Gold rush

Gold weighing over 14kg, valued at around Rs 4.2 crore has been seized at the airport in the past two months.
