Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Sikkim are among those Indian states that use their own emblems, instead of the national Lion Capital. The reasons they choose to do so are not very different from the reasons why the Indian state of Nagaland has chosen to launch its own: tradition, uniqueness and identity. Those trying to read a lot more into Nagaland’s decision can save their energy. Out in Dimapur, the debate seems to be over aesthetics as much as politics.
