By building the Statue of Unity, the world’s largest statue dedicated to the country’s first home minister, Sardar Patel, Modi gave him the respect that Nehru and the Congress did not give him. Modi corrected Nehru’s biggest mistake by removing Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. Now Modi is going to install that scepter in the new Parliament building of the country which was handed over to Nehru by invitation at the time of independence.

History of Sengol

If seen, the Scepter (Sengol) to be installed in the new Parliament House is related to Tamil history, which is about 2,000 years old from the Sangam period. Former Tamil University professor S. Rajavelu states that it was a traditional Chola practice for samayacharyas (spiritual gurus) to lead the coronation of kings and to consecrate the transfer of power, which was seen as recognition of the ruler. “Tamil kings had this sengol (Tamil word for scepter), which is a symbol of justice and good governance. The importance of Sengol is mentioned in two epics – Silpathikaram and Manimekalai.” Rajavelu said that the use of ‘scepter’ has been very famous since the Sangam period. He said that there is a whole chapter on Sengol in Tamil poetry ‘Thirukkural’. Rajavelu said that the head of the ancient Shaivite Thiruvaduthurai Adinam Math had presented Sengol to Nehru in 1947. PT Chockalingam, associated with major Saivite monasteries, says that it was our Rajaji (C Rajagopalachari, the last Governor General of India) who convinced Nehru that such a ceremony was needed as India had its own traditions and sovereign authority. The transfer should be led by a spiritual leader.

It is reported that at the time of the transfer of power on August 14, 1947, three people were specially brought from Tamil Nadu- the deputy chief priest of Aadheenam, nadhaswaram player Rajarathinam Pillai and Othuvar (singer) who brought Sengol and conducted the proceedings. was operated. According to the Tamil Nadu Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department’s 2021-22 policy note: “At the time of enthronement, the traditional guru or preceptor of the king will hand over the ceremonial scepter to the new ruler.” After completing the singing of the last line of the 11th stanza from Thevaram, Thiruvvaduthurai Aadinam Thambiran Swamigal handed over the gilded silver scepter to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

At that time Pandit Nehru had sent this scepter to the museum, but now Prime Minister Modi is bringing it to the Parliament. This thing is being praised all over the country. CR Kesavan, the great-grandson of C. Rajagopalachari, the first Indian Governor-General of India, has said that the scepter was first given to Mountbatten and later to Pujari. The priest sanctified it with Ganges water and later presented it to Nehru. It was a historical event. No one knew about this. This scepter was kept in Allahabad Museum saying that it is a golden walking stick which was given to Pandit Nehru. CR Kesavan said that I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for reviving this sacred scepter Sengol.

However, the government has rightly said that it is inappropriate to keep the sacred ‘Sengol’ in the museum. There can be no other place more appropriate, sacred and suitable than the Parliament House for the establishment of ‘Sengol’. Along with this, it is also pleasant to see that along with all the characteristics of ancient and modern India, a glimpse of our ancient civilization, culture and history will be seen in the new Parliament House.
