The Universe and the cyber space.

I intend to write about the books that move me further in my spiritual journey, websites in any field that impress me, and everything that is do with blogging.

Taj Mahal in peril.

True to our culture, every Indian is extremely proud of Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world.

But the today’s story in “The Hindu’, saddens many hearts.

This magnificent Moghul monument  Taj Mahal is facing the onslaught of extreme heat wave in India and the resultant dust pollution is feared to de-colorise the white marble.

“The heavy dust in the dry air could permanently scar the white marble monument.”

“Located on the banks of river YAMUNA, now dry, allows dust and suspended particle matter to rise and flow in the air and slam into the monument’s surface”.

Do you know some 20,000 workers toiled for twenty years to build this great wonder of the world.

Nearly 3 million tourists from all over the world visit this monument every year.
