    Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Nothing can be as beautiful as the eye that sees it. Subhanallah! is all one can say. Nature has given us so much and — thankfully — some of us have also made a little contribution (Taj Mahal).

      Tagore said we do not have to look at thunder and storm to know God’s power, a gentle morning breeze will do the trick. Same with His Beauty. Thanks for your encouragement sir.

    Wah Saeen Wah, what a post especially the Taj.

    Taj is worth watching on a Full moon Night. I watched it with — in 2007. Believe you me it is mesmerizing!! Looks like that you are hypnotized. But……………………..

    Hum Ghareebon Ki Muhabbat Ka Uradaya Hai Mazaaq.

      Yousuf sahab aap ka behad shukria. We also saw the Taj in 1981 and yes like you and any one else, we were dumb founded. You are unable to shift your gaze and there is a feeling it is talking silently to you!. I could feel it is saying “I am beautiful I know, and I am looking at you and you are beautiful too”. I remember the first look, and the last when we were tearing ourselves away.

    Three exquisite images, Shakil. My responses were – Oh, Oh, and Oh.
    Beauty can indeed take one’s breath, and one’s words away…

      We are fortunate to have some capacity to appreciate the beauty. It gives us some relief from the ugliness we find surrounded with these days.

        Absolutely necessary, I believe, Shakil, to witness the beauty; know of its opposite; yet remain unaffected by its harm. In this way we can remain centered and composed.
        Not always easy to do, yet certainly calming when we can.
        Thank You for having such a good heart… It is a pleasure to know you.

        Thanks for your kindness Carolyn. I said fortunate because some are caught up without their doing and lives are ruined, lost and homes, towns destroyed. Ask them to appreciate beauty? They will look at us with blank eyes. That is what I meant and sorry to bring this but can’t help.

        Yes, I appreciate what you are saying, Shakil… Fortunate indeed.

    Hi, I wandered my way here and I have taken the liberty to look around your page a little bit. I haven’t read all your posts but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your work so far!
    And this post is stunning! Wonderful pictures. And Taj – waah Taj!! Agar Mughalon ki shaan se mulaqat honi ho toh Taj me hoti hai!
