Anupam Kher, a bollywood actor, spoke to the debate around the National Emblem’s placement atop the new Parliament building. “If the lion has teeth, it will, of course, reveal them,” he tweeted in Hindi. After all, this is the Indian independence movement’s lion. The lion will bite if necessary. Additionally, he uploaded a video taken at Pradhan Mantri Sangrahalaya.
The lion capital on the Ashoka Column at Sarnath inspired the insignia atop the Parliament building, which sparked a fierce debate as various opposition leaders and residents pointed out that the new logo displayed the lions’ fangs. Additionally, it was said that the new lions are far more ferocious than the old ones. The emblem’s creators, artists Sunil Deore and Romiel Moses, stated that there had been no alteration to the original concept. According to Sunil Deore, the proportions and apparent variation in the lions’ expressions are caused by the angle of the view. From below, the Sarnath “Lion Capital” will appear to be identical to the Parliament insignia, he claimed.
“If an identical duplicate of the original were to be mounted atop the new structure, it would hardly be visible beyond the perimeter rail,” Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Twitter. The “experts” should be aware that the new symbol is 33 metres above ground whereas the original at Sarnath is at ground level.
Vivek Agnihotri, the director of The Kashmir Files, had tweeted in favour of the new insignia before Anupam Kher. The new National Emblem at the Central Vista had demonstrated, in his words, “that #UrbanNaxals can be duped just by shifting the viewpoint. Particularly the LOW angle He said, “#UrbanNaxals want a toothless, mute lion. in order to keep it as a pet.
