Bringing Our Gods Home

Reclaiming India’s stolen treasures

 

For thousands of years, India’s treasures have been looted. 
Nobody has bothered to bring them back. 
UNTIL NOW!

 

About India Pride Project

India’s cultural treasures have been looted for centuries. First by the Mughals, then by the colonials, and now it's being done by its own people. Ancient Indian statues, manuscripts, maps and artefacts are stolen and sold off for millions of dollars in international art markets.

 

“India Pride Project” (www.ipp.org.in) is a volunteer-led effort that is tracking these national treasures globally and demanding they are brought back to India.

 

This short 6 minute video provides an overview of our efforts  http://www.bit.ly/IPPvideo
