Diamonds are Wherever
Whether the Kohinoor was ‘stolen’ or ‘given’ to the British by the successors of Ranjit Singh is less important than what one should do with the diamond today. This is not just a precious jewel, but also a historical artefact. We know how we treat our artefacts here in India. Perhaps it is just as well the Kohinoor remains well-protected -- and better displayed -- in the crown jewels of an anachronistically monarchic nation.
