This sculpture poses a counter-question to answer this question, why Sone ki chiriya?
“Sona” means, gold, that money, and in turn economy. The steel industry has played a very significant role in the rise of the Indian economy, whether it’s the golden past or the shining present. Steel is ahead of most of the other products. The reports from PWC show very encouraging growth in the steel industry.
