*Puts on tin-foil hat*

Right then, people of ATS, I present you with the new Indian currency symbol:

The design was chosen in a competition won by a teacher at one of the country's Indian Institutes of Technology. Uday Kumar's design was chosen from a shortlist of five and he was awarded around £3,500 in prize money.

However, after looking into the story a bit more I discovered the following article...

But RTI had already exposed that he is Non-eligible candidate for Indian Rupee Symbol Design Competition as he had violated the Indian Rupee Symbol Design competition guidelines .

According to guidelines one candidate could send maximum two design entries but he had submitted a total of four designs.

Second violation of guideline is the symbol itself, as it's not applicable to standard keyboard or Unicode enable.

(Also), using roman script/English alphabet in designing the New Indian rupee symbol is also a violation of guideline according to the guideline "The symbol had to be in the Indian National Language Script".

But according to National language Script English is not included in that list till this date. -


So, this individuals design was seemingly in violation of the competitions rules and regulations and yet it was still selected for the short list and eventually chosen as the winner.

This set my radar off (maybe I have been watching too much Jordan Maxwell) because when something like this happens I cant help but think of the possible symbolism that could be in action here.

I am personally not well versed in symbolism but maybe some of the more educated people on here can come up with some potential reasons why this was chosen - does it contain any symbolic significance?

I leave it in your capable hands

I don't know but if I reflect it upon itself, it reminds me of something we've seen many times:

Edit: Or a mushroom cloud.

Or, if you reflect it vertically, it looks like the spaceship from Galaga. It kinda makes you think, huh?

Someone in charge probably just thought it looked neat. Later the "bean counters" checked over his choice and found it in violation of the rules.

This was the very first crop circle of 2010 and wad found in Wiltshire England. A Pyramid Crop Circle with elements of Saturn symbolism.

Not quite right but still...
