New 2 Rupee coin of India bears Christian cross

Here is the article by v sundaram

The press release from the Reserve Bank of India about the new Rs. 2 coin (image on the top left) is rather benign. Describing one side of the new Ferritic Stainless Steel coin, the press note says

“The reverse face of the coin shows stylised representation of “Unity in Diversity” a defining characteristic of our country. The symbol shall be seen as four heads sharing a common body. It shall be thought of as people from all four parts of the country coming together under one banner and identifying with one nation. [Press Release]

    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
