A chronicle of a million girls

Taj Mahal, Agra, India. Deutsch: Taj Mahal im ...

Taj Mahal)

The Taj Mahal – One of the world’s greatest monuments to a man’s love for a woman. What an irony.

A chronicle of a million girls.

Tanushree at Charity Spring has written about the tragic and utter disregard for the dignity of women in India that has resulted in an epidemic of unprosecuted violence and rape. What I find so disturbing is that in a democracy such as India, a person like Tanushree who is a spiritual, intelligent, beautiful soul lives in danger of being assaulted every day. But things may be changing…

    What.. Your blog ate my comment again. Why does this keep happening? Hmmm.. I smell a conspiracy.

    What I wanted to say. One of the world’s greatest monuments to a man’s love for a woman? Not so much. More like “a man’s greatest erection for a woman.”

      So said the disgruntled Taj Majal tour guide… 😉

        Ah disgruntled I am 😉

        It’s a pet peeve of mine just like ‘Shakespeare was the greatest writer ever’ or those ghastly ‘greatest songs of all time list’.. ‘Alexander the great’ etc. A little dive into history will bring to surface a story that the Taj might have been a symbol of cruelty. Though not proven it is said that around 20 thousand artisans had their hands cut off so they would not reproduce what they made for the emperor Shah Jahan. Many great building in this world have the blood of nameless workers in its mortar.. Ah well.. I guess in live beauty and cruelty stand real close together.

        I will definitely try to avoid such hyperbole in the future.
        And yes, kings, queens, emperors and sundry rulers have much blood on their hands when exercising self glorification. I can’t remember which czar had one of his architects eyes gouged out so that he could not replicate his work. But as my Shakespeare professor said, to be a king one must be a murderer.

        You don’t think the Eagles were the greatest band ever?

    Times have always been challenging. It is only in our current day – now we seem to have unlimited access to history, popular versions or not.
    For example Shakespeare was said to have been many authors not just one man. One theory has Shakespeare as a woman – Though I do not remember that source. Which for those times anyway would stand to reason that ‘she’ would not be credited. Even today many woman are placed second to men even though their numbers are greater.
