Initially unnoticed, the absence of the statue soon led to protests.  Then Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa defended the statue’s removal stating its pedestal was damaged by a speeding truck and so it had to be removed for its own ‘safety’. Later, rumours abounded that the Kannagi statue was indeed removed because a few soothsayers had warned Jayalalithaa, who was known for her belief in astrology, that the statue would bring bad luck to the ruler.  Stowed away at the PWD building overnight, the statue was later moved to the Government Museum for ‘safekeeping’. Here Kannagi’s statue gathered dust for about five years until she was finally reinstalled at Marina Beach in 2006, when the DMK returned to power.  The story of Kannagi, of a citizen reducing an entire kingdom to ashes, has made her a goddess fighting for the justice of Tamil people.

The inscription below the sculpture lists the names of the officers and gives the approximate numbers of soldiers who died (DCCLX = 760), and survived (CCCL = 350) • When Thorvaldsen learned he wasn’t going to be paid in full, the indignant artist decided to get even and added some last minute changes to his sculpture.

They took part in Pole Vault in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. • Both of them reached a height of 4.25 m making them both tied for the 2nd and 3rd places. They weren’t ready to take part in a tie-breaker. • The Japanese team was told to make its own decision about who should claim second place and who third. After lengthy discussion, it was agreed that Nishida, who had vaulted 4.25 at his first attempt, should take precedence over Oe, who had needed two attempts at that height.  • But these two athletes went beyond to show the importance of Friendship by doing something to their medals. What did they do?
  64. 64. ANSWER Upon returning to Japan, they cut their medals in half and fused them to one another so each athlete ended up with a half-silver, half-bronze medal. They became known as “The Medals of Friendship”.
