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.
The throng at the gate, vying for first images.
“Wasn’t there that we first met?”
The love that transcends generations and ages.
And all many people want is to catch it in their enclosed arms and preserve it in photos.
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.
One image in the shadows.
A mother’s love is the greatest, no doubt.
