Thoughts at Bibi ka Makbara:
Friends....I frankly tell you that I don't know anything about the emotion called "love"..!! One of my girlfriends (that means ...she is girl and she is my friend...that’s all!!), who is in great love with somebody else (latest update is that she is living happy married life!) recently told me that “love is nothing but pure selfishness"...may be...I don’t know.....lovers say "it just happens"...it blooms (in) the heart, mind, life. Dreams gets wings...wings get fired! And so and so. This "Bibi ka Makbara" is also a symbol of love...a carbon copy of Taj (or Taj is duplication of this ....???..I haven't studied history much!)...a monument to memorize wife of Aurangazeb...her dead body is kept in here... (Anyway it is buried ...hence it doesn't smell bad!!).
This structure is built by son of Aurangazeb in memory of his mother. Taj is built by Shah Jahan in memory of his wife and this Shah Jahan happens to be the father of Aurangazeb! What I understood finally is very simple...same family built two buildings that look alike!
That’s all; you have seen "Bibi ka Makbara".
Enjoy the Mughal Gardens. Marble is used inside the tomb...See the panoramic view in all angles...its nice. Spend joyous moments with your children if you have. If you are a lover, love the love like you have never loved...else if you are a simple enthusiastic traveler like me....pen down something so that others can scratch their head!
Water comes out of the ground here, which is used by the masjid situated over here. In good olden days the source of the water was not known. But now it is found that water has its roots at around 40 kms away near ellora hills, flows through underground path and because of height difference it comes out here. There is nothing big here....!! In our cities also rain water comes out in the same fashion from so many gutters and roots are not at all known!!!!
We are in Paithan ...50 kms away from Aurangabad..very famous for its Paithan sarees.( like "Tirupur" in tamilnadu ).Biggest dam of the Maharashtra is built here, we could not see it...leave that ! There is a beautiful garden...its cool evening...here is one musical fountain..also we have dance program....songs are booming. Hundreds of people gathered to see it...suddenly Nair started to dance. It looked like "Tandava Nritya" of lord Shiva. I expected news of earthquake somewhere in the world in the newspaper tomorrow! Thanks god...nothing happened!!
