Something to take your breath away

The beauty of Taj Mahal – hyperbole or understatement? Whichever way you look at it, the first sight of the majestic edifice is sure to take anyone’s breath away, and it did take mine too, though it was the second time I was seeing it. This eternal monument, described as “a teardrop in the face of time” (by poet Ravindranath Tagore), couldn’t be described better.20140313-DSC_1193

The throng at the gate, vying for first images.

And as usual, children find their own ways to be bored at one of the wonders of the world.

A child’s sense of wonder and curiosity is unbound, whether the Taj is in the background or two photographers are vying for his attention in the foreground.

And most importantly, the newer generation need to know of our beauty and heritage.20140313-DSC_1279

A mother’s love is the greatest, no doubt.
