London: One of the documents of British colonial history, Kohinoor diamond will be adorned in the exhibition of ‘Tower of London’. This exhibition is supposed to be held tomorrow i.e. Friday. The exhibition will explain the history of ‘Kohinoor’ with as much clarity and balance as possible, said the organizers.
Charity organization ‘Historic Royal Palaces’ Spokesperson said, ‘The exhibition traces the origins of several historical artifacts including the Kohinoor. How, at various times, the Mughal Empire, the Shahs of Iran, the Amirs of Afghanistan and the Sikh Maharajas It has been changed hands as a memorial of victory and defeat, that is also described here in order.’ The spokesperson claimed that various surveys have been conducted on the matter. Concerned local groups and experts have been consulted. After that interpretation was arranged at the Kohinoor exhibition. In the words of the spokesperson, ‘Our goal is one. To serve history in a transparent and balanced manner based on the results emerging from continuous research.’ The label used in the case of the Kohinoor is ‘Symbol of Conquest’. Historically, this label is to highlight that its owner has changed many times.
What does the label say?
In the Treaty of Lahore signed in 1849, then Maharaja Dilip Singh was forced to surrender the Kohinoor to Queen Victoria of England. The 10-year-old Maharaja had to give up control of the Punjab province as well. Clearly written on the label. The meaning of Kohinoor is also explained in it. Queen Victoria received it in 1850. It was mounted on an armlet worked by Min. Later, however, its ‘cut’ was changed. Its location has also changed many times. In the end, however, it adorns the crown. Incidentally, the death of Queen Elizabeth II sparked a new debate over the ownership of the Kohinoor. The Queen’s son Charles was declared the new King of Britain. But neither he nor any of the royal family showed any willingness to return the Kohinoor that had adorned his mother’s crown. The British government is also silent on this matter. Instead, the Kohinoor is going to be in the hands of Charles’ wife, Queen Consort Camilla. But not just the Kohinoor, Britain’s precious collection of precious stones from various colonies includes more eye-catching gems, including the Great Star of Africa Diamond, Tipu Sultan’s Ring, the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marble.
