This Muslim Artist Wrote An Entire Bhagwad Gita Using Ink Made Of Molten Gold


A Muslim family in Gujarat wrote a copy of the Bhagwad Gita with 'ink' made of molten gold. Mohammed Yunus Shaikh, 75, from Surendranagar in Surat and his family wrote the holy Hindu text on 168 pages of handmade red paper as a gift for Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

The Indian Express reported that the family took two months to write 745 shlokas of Gita in Sanskrit using ink prepared by melting gold bars.

Here's a photo carried by the Press Trust of India of the Gita.
