Vote for Taj Mahal : AR Rahman’s latest video

Here’s the latest video by AR Rahman dedicated to the Taj Mahal. Why? Because viewers are expected to be overwhelmed after seeing the video and should rush off to wikipedia or where-ever to VOTE for the Taj!!! Can you believe it? Now, I have to VOTE to ensure that Taj is recognized as a Wonder of the world! And if I dont? Taj will be knocked off the list?!!!?

My answer to all those behind this voting scheme- “Are you out of your F&#King mind?”. The Taj Mahal is a wonder of the world, just like the Pyramid of Giza, like the Hanging gardens of Babylon. And no single person or organization can sit around fine tune the list of wonders by knocking items off the list. If the modern engineering and archeology has given us more to be proud of, then add to the list. Do NOT replace items on the list. Who says that the list should always be SEVEN? Why seven?

And now, you are telling me that if enough morons do not VOTE for this, my Taj Mahal would cease to be a wonder? VOTE? A mechanism that has proven time and again to be the most defective model to take a right decision? We know by years of political chaos in India that Voting cannot be depended on to reach the right decision. Then why VOTE for Taj?


The song sounds nice!

I am NOT going to vote. You can knock Taj off the list if you want. But, Taj has always been an architectural marvel and will always be a wonder. Be it on your list or not. It will always be in our hearts!

PS: While on the subject, I had read this very interesting post about Taj being a Hindu temple and not a Muslim tomb. I need to post more details on that article here! 🙂

    The Taj is a wonder of love. This is true. It is a wonder of love for Lord Siva and carbon dating and historical records prove this. However, when you have a nice romantic story added to it and a connection to a Shah and his wife that makes it a number one tourist attraction for India. Never mind that it may have been ceased and looted by those in power at the time. That will not sell tickets or bring tourism to India knowing it may be a Hindu Siva temple in truth.Either way both Hindus and Muslims love it! It is a beautiful palace and no matter what you believe is its history, it unifies all tourists who come there regardless of what religion, race, or nationality they are. We are all Godbrothers, Hindu, Muslim, etc… and should not fight, hate, or disrespect eachother. Jai Sri Krsna!
