Tajmahal | A love story etched in Marble

"You knew Shah Jahan, life and youth, wealth and glory, they all drift away in the current of time. You strove, therefore, to perpetuate only the sorrows of your heart. Kingly power, stern as thunder, way sink into sleep like the glowing embers of the setting sun.... Let the splendour of diamond, pearl and ruby vanish like the magic shimmer of the rainbow. Only-let this one teardrop, this Taj Mahal, glisten spotlessly bright on the cheek of time, forever and forever".
~Rabindranath Tagore
