The History of Sengol : PM Modi : The historical Sengol
The sengol came into being after a chain of events that started with a simple question by Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy of British India, to Prime Minister Nehru. According to history and news reports, Mountbatten had asked the soon-to-be-PM what would mark the transfer of power when India attains Independence.
Jwaharlal Nehru got the Sengol from Tamil Nadu and accepted it from the British govterment , symbolising the transfer of power in a traditional way, Amit Shah also said that It was kept at a museum in Allahabad, and it will be moved to the new Parliament building, and installed near the Sabhapati’s seat.
Who makes the Sengol
Faced with the daunting task of arranging the sculpture that will mark India’s Independence, Rajaji contacted Thiruvaduthurai Atheenam, a prominent mutt in present-day Tamil Nadu. The then seer of the mutt accepted the responsibility. The sengol was made by Vummidi Bangaru Chetty, a jeweller in then Madras chenaai. It is five feet in length and the statue of nandi means bull has on the top of sengol , which one is symbolising justice.
When it Handover
According to news reports, a senior priest of the mutt first handed over the sceptre to Mountbatten and then took it back. It was then sprinkled with gangajal, taken in a procession to Prime Minister Nehru and handed over to him, reportedly 15 minutes before midnight, when India attained Independence. A special song was composed and rendered as Prime Minister Nehru received the sceptre.
