Hardeep Puri – Union Minister:
Sense of proportion & perspective.
Beauty is famously regarded as lying in the eyes of the beholder. So is the case with calm & anger.
The original Sarnath Emblem is 1.6 mtr high whereas the emblem on the top of the New Parliament Building is huge at 6.5 mtrs height.
If an exact replica of the original were to be placed on the new building, it would barely be visible beyond the peripheral rail.
The ‘experts’ should also know that the original placed in Sarnath is at ground level while the new emblem is at a height of 33 mtrs from ground.
One needs to appreciate the impact of angle, height & scale when comparing the two structures.
If one looks at the Sarnath emblem from below it would look as calm or angry as the one being discussed.
If the Sarnath emblem was to be scaled up or the emblem on the new Parliament building is reduced to that size there would not be any difference.
