Indian Government Digs for Gold

It’s a problem for governments across the planet and few have a workable solution: how do you save an ailing economy? Well India’s central bank has a more novel approach than most...

When the government received a letter from Yogi Swami Shobhan Sarkar telling them about how he dreamt there was 1,000 tons of gold buried beneath a ruined palace, instead of throwing it in the trash they assembled a team of archaeologists to go digging. It’s not stealing though, Mr. Sarkar said the ghost of the palace’s dead ruler told him it was ok.

It is estimated that half as much gold as is stored in Fort Knox is being held in Indian temples as offerings to the gods although worshippers are generally unwilling to hand it over.
