Returning stolen art to India

Understanding that tens of thousands of Indian artefacts have been looted over the centuries, Anuraag Saxena and his friends have embarked on a mission to bring that heritage back home. The India Pride Project is raising awareness of the magnitude of the plunder and the current locations of stolen statues, manuscripts, and other valuables—often acquired unwittingly by their present owners. His organization is part of a growing movement that is prompting museums, art collectors, and world leaders to restitute these items to India, piece by treasured piece.
