On a covetous diamond like “KOHINOOR”.

British Prime Minister, David Cameron, was hailed for making his statement on Jalianwalla Bagh massacre in 1919 as “….a deeply shameful event in British history…” during his 3 days visit to India recently. This he did by making necessary entry in visitors diary kept at the massacre site at Amritsar (India). The statement so made by the British Prime Minister was welcome every where. Unfortunately it was followed by another statement of his on “Kohinoor”, the 180 carrot diamond. Kohinoor means a mountain of light as it has an enormous dazzling brightness. The British Prime Minister showed a posture of rigidness when reacting on the Kohinoor telling that he is not at all for returning it to India as it was offered to the queen Victoria as a gift. This part of his statement badly disappointed Indians to the extreme as they all know that this diamond belonged to India and that it was taken away by the British Empire through stealthily manoeuvred measures. In this process, the statement he made on Jalianwallah Bagh massacre in an honest manner got its impact dwindled. British have no reason not to return the Kohinoor to India to whom it originally belonged. They may take their time, but they will have to return it to India.
