Who would you rather be? A man’s first love or his last romance?
Poets and philosophers have long debated on what men and women want from a relationship.
Shah Jahan probably knew the answer – which is why he built the world’s most well-known symbol of love – the Taj Mahal – in the memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz.
There are many who find this ivory mausoleum that stands over the tomb of the most beautiful woman of the time, to be cold, frosty.
But only a truly romantic heart would find the passionate touches in the white architectural marvel that is reflected in the dark waters of the Yamuna. In the flourish of the bejeweled flowers, the delicate tendrils, the jaali – work on the windows, in the glimmer of the gold outline, there is love, there is life, in this ode to a dear departed.
Who would not want to be the woman who inspires such a majestic gesture of love?
