Supporting the Taj

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


The Taj Mahal has several red sandstone buildings on two sides. They are the mausoleums of his other wives, as Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan were buried in the main white marble tomb. A mosque and a darwaza (gateway) protect and lead to the Taj from the sides. Its towers are angled to fall away from the main tomb, in case of an earthquake. Built in 17th century and destined to remain unparalleled.

I am slightly crazy and totally sarcastic, with a nasty icing of cynicism. I exude pessimistic vibes every now and then. However, I do actively look for things that make me happy, like birds, damselflies and dragonflies, mountains and of course, books. Generous, inspiring people and people who enjoy what they do for a living while being good at it, make me feel like it is, after all, worthwhile being human. I hope to write about things in a way that makes them interesting.. and makes me more human-like. No matter how many times I rewrite this, still comes out corny. I give up
