The skies embedded with valuable jewels spreads its shimmer, richness onto the golden fields that are adorned by their fragile hands, bloodshed, dreams suffered, many cradles and newlyweds were left lonely on the night of Nation’s freedom, when our land solely became ours, It was our win over the cruelty of the Britishers. Indian’s notable heritage reflected through its society was shook and prisoned by the colonial influence which affected our country’s belief and knowledge. For eighty nine years, the golden bird was burried in its own home and finally followed the light at the midnight of August 15, 1947, The land breathed again alongwith its first national leader Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who unfurled the tricolour of Independent India.
The then Viceroy Lord Mountbatten was curious to follow the tradition for transfer of leadership that he discussed with Pandit Nehru, Who was guided by Rajagopalachari, Who studied about the tradition of handling over The Sengol to the new monarch practiced by the Chola Kings which means alike rule for all.
The Sengol symbolised the succession of Indians over the Britishers that was passed on by the Britishers to Pandit Nehru, Sengol is a five feet long sliver stick plated with gold ornaments with a Bull on top which indicates dharam, every soul is birthed with an aim that they strive to win and as citizens our foremost aim must be securing our roots, our traditional morals and as we globally continue to surge, the heritage shouldn’t be abandoned. On May 28th 2023, P.M Narendra Modi instilled The Sengol near the speaker’s chair in the new parliament plan to promote unity, truth, equality and justice for his countrymen whilst also awakening cultural pride in every home.
