As Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government maintains it will make all efforts to bring the Kohinoor back, a new book on the diamond by William Dalrymple and Anita Anand has sparked a fresh debate. On We The People, the authors tell us why they call Kohinoor "the world's most infamous diamond" and discuss whether India can bring realistically it back. A "ghar wapsi" or return home of the diamond which the British forced 12-year-old Duleep Singh to hand over has now become a sort of a mission for the government which has told the Supreme Court that it will make all possible efforts to get the diamond back. On We The People, we ask, Why does Kohinoor invoke the kind of passion it does in India? Is it because it has come to be a symbol of colonialism?
