27 December 2016 Current Affairs: Dinanath Bhargava, the man who designed the National Emblem, passed away on 24 December 2016 following a prolonged illness. He was 89. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

He was the man who sketched and illuminated the National Emblem and extracted its motto 'Satyameva Jayate' (Truth alone triumphs) from Mundaka Upanishad in 1948 after an extensive research.

Dinanath Bhargava :  Born in November 1927 at Multai in Betul district of Madhya Pradesh, Bhargava was chosen by noted painter Nandlal Bose in the group for designing the pages of the Indian Constitution’s manuscript. 

His work adorned the front page of the original first copy of the Indian Constitution. Later, the country adopted it as the national emblem on 26 January 1950. He ended up making the first 30 pages of the Constitution by the end of 1948.

He was also instrumental in weaving the double decker loom and designing new Chanderi saris. He started the carpet-making industry in Gwalior during the time of late Congress leader Madhav Rao Scindia. 

He was also a renowned painter. His paintings were displayed in the Europe’s World Art Tour in the 1950s, when he won the gold medal.
