हालात-ए-मुल्क

वो रस्सी आज भी संग्रहालय में है जिस्से गांधी बकरी बांधा करते थे
किन्तु वो रस्सी कहां है जिस पे भगत सिंह, सुखदेव और राजगुरु हसते हुए
झूले थे?
हालात-ए-मुल्क देख के रोया न गया,
कोशिश तो की पर मूंह ढक के सोया न गया

देश मेरा क्या बाजार हो गया है ....
पकड़ता हूँ तिरंगा तो लोग पूछते है कितने का है...


वर्षों बाद एक नेता को माँ गंगा की आरती करते देखा है,
वरना अब तक एक परिवार की समाधियों पर फूल चढ़ते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को अपनी मातृभाषा में बोलते देखा है,
वरना अब तक रटी रटाई अंग्रेजी बोलते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को Statue Of Unity बनाते देखा है,
वरना अब तक एक परिवार की मूर्तियां बनते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को संसद की माटी चूमते देखा है,
वरना अब तक इटैलियन सैंडिल चाटते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को देश के लिए रोते देखा है,
वरना अब तक "मेरे पति को मार दिया" कह कर वोटों की भीख मांगते
देखा है।
पाकिस्तान को घबराते देखा है,
अमेरिका को झुकते देखा है।
इतने वर्षों बाद भारत माँ को खुलकर मुस्कुराते देखा है।

हिन्दू और मुस्लमान

ये पेड़ ये पत्ते ये शाखें भी परेशान हो जाएं !
अगर परिंदे भी हिन्दू और मुस्लमान हो जाएं
.

सूखे मेवे भी ये देख कर हैरान हो गए..
न जाने कब नारियल हिन्दू और खजूर मुसलमान 
हो गए......

न मस्जिद को जानते हैं , न शिवालों को जानते हैं
जो भूखे पेट होते हैं,वो सिर्फ निवालों को जानते हैं |

मेरा यही अंदाज ज़माने को खलता है,
की मेरा चिराग हवा के खिलाफ क्यों जलता है |

मैं अमन पसंद हूँ ,मेरे शहर में दंगा रहने दो...
लाल और हरे में मत बांटो ,मेरी छत पर तिरंगा रहने 
दो....

Taj Mahal: A Burial or a Temple...??

The story of the Taj Mahal that most of us have known about may not be the real truth.  Contrary to what visitors are made to believe the Tajmahal is not a Islamic mausoleum but an ancient Shiva Temple known as Tejo Mahalaya which the 5th generation Moghul emperor Shahjahan commandeered from the then Maharaja of Jaipur. The Taj Mahal, should therefore, be viewed as a temple palace and not as a tomb. That makes a vast difference. You miss the details of its size, grandeur, majesty and beauty when you take it to be a mere tomb. When told that you are visiting a temple palace you wont fail to notice its annexes, ruined defensive walls, hillocks, moats, cascades, fountains, majestic garden, hundreds of rooms archaded verendahs, terraces, multi stored towers, secret sealed chambers, guest rooms, stables, the trident (Trishul) pinnacle on the dome and the sacred, esoteric Hindu letter "OM" carved on the exterior of the wall of the sanctum sanctorum now occupied by the cenotaphs. For detailed proof of this breath taking discovery, you may read the well known historian Shri. P. N. Oak's celebrated book titled " Tajmahal : The True Story". But let us place before you, for the time being an exhaustive summary of the massive evidence ranging over hundred points: 

NAME
1.The term Tajmahal itself never occurs in any mogul court paper or chronicle even in Aurangzeb's time. The attempt to explain it away as Taj-i-mahal is therefore, ridiculous.

2.The ending "Mahal"is never muslim because in none of the muslim countries around the world from Afghanistan to Algeria is there a building known as "Mahal".

3.The unusual explanation of the term Tajmahal derives from Mumtaz Mahal, who is buried in it, is illogical in at least two respects viz., firstly her name was never Mumtaj Mahal but Mumtaz-ul-Zamani and secondly one cannot omit the first three letters "Mum" from a woman's name to derive the remainder as the name of the building.

4.Since the lady's name was Mumtaz (ending with 'Z') the name of the building derived from her should have been Taz Mahal, if at all, and not Taj (spelled with a 'J').

5.Several European visitors of Shahjahan's time allude to the building as Taj-e-Mahal is almost the correct tradition, age old Sanskrit name Tej-o-Mahalaya, signifying a Shiva temple. Contrarily Shahjahan and Aurangzeb scrupulously avoid using the Sanskrit term and call it just a holy grave.

6.The tomb should be understood to signify NOT A BUILDING but only the grave or centotaph inside it. This would help people to realize that all dead muslim courtiers and royalty including Humayun, Akbar, Mumtaz, Etmad-ud-Daula and Safdarjang have been buried in capture Hindu mansions and temples.

7.Moreover, if the Taj is believed to be a burial place, how can the term Mahal, i.e., mansion apply to it?

8.Since the term Taj Mahal does not occur in mogul courts it is absurd to search for any mogul explanation for it. Both its components namely, 'Taj' and' Mahal' are of Sanskrit origin.



TEMPLE TRADITION
9.The term Taj Mahal is a corrupt form of the sanskrit term TejoMahalay signifying a Shiva Temple. Agreshwar Mahadev i.e., The Lord of Agra was consecrated in it.

10.The tradition of removing the shoes before climbing the marble platform originates from pre Shahjahan times when the Taj was a Shiva Temple. Had the Taj originated as a tomb, shoes need not have to be removed because shoes are a necessity in a cemetery.

11.Visitors may notice that the base slab of the centotaph is the marble basement in plain white while its superstructure and the other three centotaphs on the two floors are covered with inlaid creeper designs. This indicates that the marble pedestal of the Shiva idol is still in place and Mumtaz's centotaphs are fake.

12.The pitchers carved inside the upper border of the marble lattice plus those mounted on it number 108-a number sacred in Hindu Temple tradition.

13.There are persons who are connected with the repair and the maintainance of the Taj who have seen the ancient sacred Shiva Linga and other idols sealed in the thick walls and in chambers in the secret, sealed red stone stories below the marble basement. The Archaeological Survey of India is keeping discretely, politely and diplomatically silent about it to the point of dereliction of its own duty to probe into hidden historical evidence.

14.In India there are 12 Jyotirlingas i.e., the outstanding Shiva Temples. The Tejomahalaya alias The Tajmahal appears to be one of them known as Nagnatheshwar since its parapet is girdled with Naga, i.e., Cobra figures. Ever since Shahjahan's capture of it the sacred temple has lost its Hindudom.

15.The famous Hindu treatise on architecture titled Vishwakarma Vastushastra mentions the 'Tej-Linga' amongst the Shivalingas i.e., the stone emblems of Lord Shiva, the Hindu deity. Such a Tej Linga was consecrated in the Taj Mahal, hence the term Taj Mahal alias Tejo Mahalaya.

16.Agra city, in which the Taj Mahal is located, is an ancient centre of Shiva worship. Its orthodox residents have through ages continued the tradition of worshipping at five Shiva shrines before taking the last meal every night especially during the month of Shravan. During the last few centuries the residents of Agra had to be content with worshipping at only four prominent Shiva temples viz., Balkeshwar, Prithvinath, Manakameshwar and Rajarajeshwar. They had lost track of the fifth Shiva deity which their forefathers worshipped. Apparently the fifth was Agreshwar Mahadev Nagnatheshwar i.e., The Lord Great God of Agra, The Deity of the King of Cobras, consecrated in the Tejomahalay alias Tajmahal.

17.The people who dominate the Agra region are Jats. Their name of Shiva is Tejaji. The Jat special issue of The Illustrated Weekly of India (June 28,1971) mentions that the Jats have the Teja Mandirs i.e., Teja Temples. This is because Teja-Linga is among the several names of the Shiva Lingas. From this it is apparent that the Taj-Mahal is Tejo-Mahalaya, The Great Abode of Tej.


DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE
18. Shahjahan's own court chronicle, the Badshahnama, admits (page 403, vol 1) that a grand mansion of unique splendor, capped with a dome (Imaarat-a-Alishan wa Gumbaze) was taken from the Jaipur Maharaja Jaisigh for Mumtaz's burial, and the building was known as Raja Mansingh's palace.

19. The plaque put the archealogy department outside the Tajmahal describes the edifice as a mausoleum built by Shahjahan for his wife Mumtaz Mahal , over 22 years from 1631 to 1653. That plaque is a specimen of historical bungling. Firstly, the plaque sites no authority for its claim. Secondly the lady's name was Mumtaz-ulZamani and not Mumtazmahal. Thirdly, the period of 22 years is taken from some mumbo jumbo noting by an unreliable French visitor Tavernier, to the exclusion of all muslim versions, which is an absurdity.

20. Prince Aurangzeb's letter to his father,emperor Shahjahan,is recorded in atleast three chronicles titled `Aadaab-e-Alamgiri', `Yadgarnama', and the `Muruqqa-i-Akbarabadi' (edited by Said Ahmed, Agra, 1931, page 43, footnote 2). In that letter Aurangzeb records in 1652 A.D itself that the several buildings in the fancied burial place of Mumtaz were seven storeyed and were so old that they were all leaking, while the dome had developed a crack on the northern side.Aurangzeb, therefore, ordered immediate repairs to the buildings at his own expense while recommending to the emperor that more elaborate repairs be carried out later. This is the proof that during Shahjahan's reign itself that the Taj complex was so old as to need immediate repairs.

21. The ex-Maharaja of Jaipur retains in his secret personal `KapadDwara' collection two orders from Shahjahan dated Dec 18, 1633 (bearing modern nos. R.176 and 177) requestioning the Taj building complex. That was so blatant a usurpation that the then ruler of Jaipur was ashamed to make the document public.

22. The Rajasthan State archives at Bikaner preserve three other firmans addressed by Shahjahan to the Jaipur's ruler Jaising ordering the latter to supply marble (for Mumtaz's grave and koranic grafts) from his Makranna quarris, and stone cutters. Jaisingh was apparently so enraged at the blatant seizure of the Tajmahal that he refused to oblige Shahjahan by providing marble for grafting koranic engravings and fake centotaphs for further desecration of the Tajmahal. Jaising looked at Shahjahan's demand for marble and stone cutters, as an insult added to injury. Therefore, he refused to send any marble and instead detained the stone cutters in his protective custody.

23. The three firmans demanding marble were sent to Jaisingh within about two years of Mumtaz's death. Had Shahjahan really built the Tajmahal over a period of 22 years, the marble would have needed only after 15 or 20 years not immediately after Mumtaz's death.

24. Moreover, the three mention neither the Tajmahal, nor Mumtaz, nor the burial. The cost and the quantity of the stone also are not mentioned. This proves that an insignificant quantity of marble was needed just for some supercial tinkering and tampering with the Tajmahal. Even otherwise Shahjahan could never hope to build a fabulous Tajmahal by abject dependence for marble on a non cooperative Jaisingh.



EUROPEAN VISITOR'S ACCOUNTS
25. Tavernier, a French jeweller has recorded in his travel memoirs that Shahjahan purposely buried Mumtaz near the Taz-i-Makan (i.e.,`The Taj building') where foriegners used to come as they do even today so that the world may admire. He also adds that the cost of the scaffolding was more than that of the entire work. The work that Shahjahan commissioned in the Tejomahalaya Shiva temple was plundering at the costly fixtures inside it, uprooting the Shiva idols, planting the centotaphs in their place on two stories, inscribing the koran along the arches and walling up six of the seven stories of the Taj. It was this plunder, desecrating and plunderring of the rooms which took 22 years.

26. Peter Mundy, an English visitor to Agra recorded in 1632 (within only a year of Mumtaz's death) that `the places of note in and around Agra, included Taj-e-Mahal's tomb, gardens and bazaars'. He, therefore, confirms that that the Tajmahal had been a noteworthy building even before Shahjahan.

27. De Laet, a Dutch official has listed Mansingh's palace about a mile from Agra fort, as an outstanding building of pre shahjahan's time. Shahjahan's court chronicle, the Badshahnama records, Mumtaz's burial in the same Mansingh's palace.

28. Bernier, a contemporary French visitor has noted that non muslim's were barred entry into the basement (at the time when Shahjahan requisitioned Mansingh's palace) which contained a dazzling light. Obviously, he reffered to the silver doors, gold railing, the gem studded lattice and strings of pearl hanging over Shiva's idol. Shahjahan comandeered the building to grab all the wealth, making Mumtaz's death a convineant pretext.

29. Johan Albert Mandelslo, who describes life in agra in 1638 (only 7 years after mumtaz's death) in detail (in his `Voyages and Travels to West-Indies', published by John Starkey and John Basset, London), makes no mention of the Tajmahal being under construction though it is commonly erringly asserted or assumed that the Taj was being built from 1631 to 1653.



SANSKIRT INSCRIPTION
30. A Sanskrit inscription too supports the conclusion that the Taj originated as a Shiva temple. Wrongly termed as the Bateshwar inscription (currently preserved on the top floor of the Lucknow museum), it refers to the raising of a "crystal white Shiva temple so alluring that Lord Shiva once enshrined in it decided never to return to Mount Kailash his usual abode". That inscription dated 1155 A.D. was removed from the Tajmahal garden at Shahjahan's orders. Historicians and Archeaologists have blundered in terming the insription the `Bateshwar inscription' when the record doesn't say that it was found by Bateshwar. It ought, in fact, to be called `The Tejomahalaya inscription' because it was originally installed in the Taj garden before it was uprooted and cast away at Shahjahan's command.
A clue to the tampering by Shahjahan is found on pages 216-217, vol. 4, of Archealogiical Survey of India Reports (published 1874) stating that a "great square black balistic pillar which, with the base and capital of another pillar....now in the grounds of Agra,...it is well known, once stood in the garden of Tajmahal".


MISSING ELEPHANTS
31. Far from the building of the Taj, Shahjahan disfigured it with black koranic lettering and heavily robbed it of its Sanskrit inscription, several idols and two huge stone elephants extending their trunks in a welcome arch over the gateway where visitors these days buy entry tickets. An Englishman, Thomas Twinning, records (pg.191 of his book "Travels in India A Hundred Years ago") that in November 1794 "I arrived at the high walls which enclose the Taj-e-Mahal and its circumjacent buildings. I here got out of the palanquine and.....mounted a short flight of steps leading to a beautiful portal which formed the centre of this side of the `COURT OF ELEPHANTS" as the great area was called."


KORANIC PATCHES
32. The Taj Mahal is scrawled over with 14 chapters of the Koran but nowhere is there even the slightest or the remotest allusion in that Islamic overwriting to Shahjahan's authorship of the Taj. Had Shahjahan been the builder he would have said so in so many words before beginning to quote Koran.

33. That Shahjahan, far from building the marble Taj, only disfigured it with black lettering is mentioned by the inscriber Amanat Khan Shirazi himself in an inscription on the building. A close scrutiny of the Koranic lettering reveals that they are grafts patched up with bits of variegated stone on an ancient Shiva temple.


CARBON 14 TEST
34. A wooden piece from the riverside doorway of the Taj subjected to the carbon 14 test by an American Laboratory, has revealed that the door to be 300 years older than Shahjahan,since the doors of the Taj, broken open by Muslim invaders repeatedly from the 11th century onwards, had to b replaced from time to time. The Taj edifice is much more older. It belongs to 1155 A.D, i.e., almost 500 years anterior to Shahjahan.


ARCHITECTURAL EVIDENCE
35. Well known Western authorities on architechture like E.B.Havell, Mrs.Kenoyer and Sir W.W.Hunterhave gone on record to say that the TajMahal is built in the Hindu temple style. Havell points out the ground plan of the ancient Hindu Chandi Seva Temple in Java is identical with that of the Taj.

36. A central dome with cupolas at its four corners is a universal feature of Hindu temples.

37. The four marble pillars at the plinth corners are of the Hindu style. They are used as lamp towers during night and watch towers during the day. Such towers serve to demarcate the holy precincts. Hindu wedding altars and the altar set up for God Satyanarayan worship have pillars raised at the four corners.

38. The octagonal shape of the Tajmahal has a special Hindu significance because Hindus alone have special names for the eight directions, and celestial guards assigned to them. The pinnacle points to the heaven while the foundation signifies to the nether world. Hindu forts, cities, palaces and temples genrally have an octagonal layout or some octagonal features so that together with the pinnacle and the foundation they cover all the ten directions in which the king or God holds sway, according to Hindu belief.

39. The Tajmahal has a trident pinncle over the dome. A full scale of the trident pinnacle is inlaid in the red stone courtyard to the east of the Taj. The central shaft of the trident depicts a "Kalash" (sacred pot) holding two bent mango leaves and a coconut. This is a sacred Hindu motif. Identical pinnacles have been seen over Hindu and Buddhist temples in the Himalayan region. Tridents are also depicted against a red lotus background at the apex of the stately marble arched entrances on all four sides of the Taj. People fondly but mistakenly believed all these centuries that the Taj pinnacle depicts a Islamic crescent and star was a lighting conductor installed by the British rulers in India. Contrarily, the pinnacle is a marvel of Hindu metallurgy since the pinnacle made of non rusting alloy, is also perhaps a lightning deflector. That the pinnacle of the replica is drawn in the eastern courtyard is significant because the east is of special importance to the Hindus, as the direction in which the sun rises. The pinnacle on the dome has the word `Allah' on it after capture. The pinnacle figure on the ground does not have the word Allah.


INCONSISTENCIES
40. The two buildings which face the marble Taj from the east and west are identical in design, size and shape and yet the eastern building is explained away by Islamic tradition, as a community hall while the western building is claimed to be a mosque. How could buildings meant for radically different purposes be identical? This proves that the western building was put to use as a mosque after seizure of the Taj property by Shahjahan. Curiously enough the building being explained away as a mosque has no minaret. They form a pair af reception pavilions of the Tejomahalaya temple palace.

41. A few yards away from the same flank is the Nakkar Khana alias DrumHouse which is a intolerable incongruity for Islam. The proximity of the Drum House indicates that the western annex was not originally a mosque. Contrarily a drum house is a neccesity in a Hindu temple or palace because Hindu chores,in the morning and evening, begin to the sweet strains of music.

42. The embossed patterns on the marble exterior of the centotaph chamber wall are foilage of the conch shell design and the Hindu letter "OM". The octagonally laid marble lattices inside the centotaph chamber depict pink lotuses on their top railing. The Lotus, the conch and the OM are the sacred motifs associated with the Hindu deities and temples.

43. The spot occupied by Mumtaz's centotaph was formerly occupied by the Hindu Teja Linga a lithic representation of Lord Shiva. Around it are five perambulatory passages. Perambulation could be done around the marble lattice or through the spacious marble chambers surrounding the centotaph chamber, and in the open over the marble platform. It is also customary for the Hindus to have apertures along the perambulatory passage, overlooking the deity. Such apertures exist in the perambulatories in the Tajmahal.

44. The sanctom sanctorum in the Taj has silver doors and gold railings as Hindu temples have. It also had nets of pearl and gems stuffed in the marble lattices. It was the lure of this wealth which made Shahjahan commandeer the Taj from a helpless vassal Jaisingh, the then ruler of Jaipur.

45. Peter Mundy, a Englishman records (in 1632, within a year of Mumtaz's death) having seen a gem studded gold railing around her tomb. Had the Taj been under construction for 22 years, a costly gold railing would not have been noticed by Peter mundy within a year of Mumtaz's death. Such costl fixtures are installed in a building only after it is ready for use. This indicates that Mumtaz's centotaph was grafted in place of the Shivalinga in the centre of the gold railings. Subsequently the gold railings, silver doors, nets of pearls, gem fillings etc. were all carried away to Shahjahan's treasury. The seizure of the Taj thus constituted an act of highhanded Moghul robery causing a big row between Shahjahan and Jaisingh.

46. In the marble flooring around Mumtaz's centotaph may be seen tiny mosaic patches. Those patches indicate the spots where the support for the gold railings were embedded in the floor. They indicate a rectangular fencing.

47. Above Mumtaz's centotaph hangs a chain by which now hangs a lamp. Before capture by Shahjahan the chain used to hold a water pitcher from which water used to drip on the Shivalinga.

48. It is this earlier Hindu tradition in the Tajmahal which gave the Islamic myth of Shahjahan's love tear dropping on Mumtaz's tomb on the full moon day of the winter eve.

TREASURY WELL
49. Between the so-called mosque and the drum house is a multistoried octagonal well with a flight of stairs reaching down to the water level. This is a traditional treasury well in Hindu temple palaces. Treasure chests used to be kept in the lower apartments while treasury personnel had their offices in the upper chambers. The circular stairs made it difficult for intruders to reach down to the treasury or to escape with it undetected or unpursued. In case the premises had to be surrendered to a besieging enemy the treasure could be pushed into the well to remain hidden from the conquerer and remain safe for salvaging if the place was reconquered. Such an elaborate multistoried well is superflous for a mere mausoleum. Such a grand, gigantic well is unneccesary for a tomb

BURIAL DATE UNKNOWN
50. Had Shahjahan really built the Taj Mahal as a wonder mausoleum, history would have recorded a specific date on which she was ceremoniously buried in the Taj Mahal. No such date is ever mentioned. This important missing detail decisively exposes the falsity of the Tajmahal legend.

51. Even the year of Mumtaz's death is unknown. It is variously speculated to be 1629, 1630, 1631 or 1632. Had she deserved a fabulous burial, as is claimed, the date of her death had not been a matter of much speculation. In an harem teeming with 5000 women it was difficult to keep track of dates of death. Apparently the date of Mumtaz's death was so insignificant an event, as not to merit any special notice. Who would then build a Taj for her burial?


BASELESS LOVE STORIES
52. Stories of Shahjahan's exclusive infatuation for Mumtaz's are concoctions. They have no basis in history nor has any book ever written on their fancied love affairs. Those stories have been invented as an afterthought to make Shahjahan's authorship of the Taj look plausible.


COST
53. The cost of the Taj is nowhere recorded in Shahjahan's court papers because Shahjahan never built the Tajmahal. That is why wild estimates of the cost by gullible writers have ranged from 4 million to 91.7 million rupees.


PERIOD OF CONSTRUCTION
54. Likewise the period of construction has been guessed to be anywhere between 10 years and 22 years. There would have not been any scope for guesswork had the building construction been on record in the court papers.


ARCHITECTS
55. The designer of the Tajmahal is also variously mentioned as Essa Effendy, a Persian or Turk, or Ahmed Mehendis or a Frenchman, Austin deBordeaux, or Geronimo Veroneo, an Italian, or Shahjahan himself.


RECORDS DON'T EXIST
56. Twenty thousand labourers are supposed to have worked for 22 years during Shahjahan's reign in building the Tajmahal. Had this been true, there should have been available in Shahjahan's court papers design drawings, heaps of labour muster rolls, daily expenditure sheets, bills and receipts of material ordered, and commisioning orders. There is not even a scrap of paper of this kind.

57. It is, therefore, court flatterers,blundering historians, somnolent archeologists, fiction writers, senile poets, careless tourists officials and erring guides who are responsible for hustling the world into believing in Shahjahan's mythical authorship of the Taj.
58. Description of the gardens around the Taj of Shahjahan's time mention Ketaki, Jai, Jui, Champa, Maulashree, Harshringar and Bel. All these are plants whose flowers or leaves are used in the worship of Hindu deities. Bel leaves are exclusively used in Lord Shiva's worship. A graveyard is planted only with shady trees because the idea of using fruit and flower from plants in a cemetary is abhorrent to human conscience. The presence of Bel and other flower plants in the Taj garden is proof of its having been a Shiva temple before seizure by Shahjahan.

59. Hindu temples are often built on river banks and sea beaches. The Taj is one such built on the bank of the Yamuna river an ideal location for a Shiva temple.

60. Prophet Mohammad has ordained that the burial spot of a muslim should be inconspicous and must not be marked by even a single tombstone. In flagrant violation of this, the Tajamhal has one grave in the basement and another in the first floor chamber both ascribed to Mumtaz. Those two centotaphs were infact erected by Shahjahan to bury the two tier Shivalingas that were consecrated in the Taj. It is customary for Hindus to install two Shivalingas one over the other in two stories as may be seen in the Mahankaleshwar temple in Ujjain and the Somnath temple raised by Ahilyabai in Somnath Pattan.

61. The Tajmahal has identical entrance arches on all four sides. This is a typical Hindu building style known as Chaturmukhi, i.e.,four faced.


THE HINDU DOME
62. The Tajmahal has a reverberating dome. Such a dome is an absurdity for a tomb which must ensure peace and silence. Contrarily reverberating domes are a neccesity in Hindu temples because they create an ecstatic dinmultiplying and magnifying the sound of bells, drums and pipes accompanying the worship of Hindu deities.

63. The Tajmahal dome bears a lotus cap. Original Islamic domes have a bald top as is exemplified by the Pakistan Embassy in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi, and the domes in the Pakistan's newly built capital Islamabad.

64. The Tajmahal entrance faces south. Had the Taj been an Islamic building it should have faced the west.


TOMB IS THE GRAVE, NOT THE BUILDING
65. A widespread misunderstanding has resulted in mistaking the building for the grave.Invading Islam raised graves in captured buildings in every country it overran. Therefore, hereafter people must learn not to confound the building with the grave mounds which are grafts in conquered buildings. This is true of the Tajmahal too. One may therefore admit (for arguments sake) that Mumtaz lies buried inside the Taj. But that should not be construed to mean that the Taj was raised over Mumtaz's grave.

66. The Taj is a seven storied building. Prince Aurangzeb also mentions this in his letter to Shahjahan. The marble edifice comprises four stories including the lone, tall circular hall inside the top, and the lone chamber in the basement. In between are two floors each containing 12 to 15 palatial rooms. Below the marble plinth reaching down to the river at the rear are two more stories in red stone. They may be seen from the river bank. The seventh storey must be below the ground (river) level since every ancient Hindu building had a subterranian storey.

67. Immediately bellow the marble plinth on the river flank are 22 rooms in red stone with their ventilators all walled up by Shahjahan. Those rooms, made uninhibitably by Shahjahan, are kept locked by Archealogy Department of India. The lay visitor is kept in the dark about them. Those 22 rooms still bear ancient Hindu paint on their walls and ceilings. On their side is a nearly 33 feet long corridor. There are two door frames one at either end ofthe corridor. But those doors are intriguingly sealed with brick and lime.

68. Apparently those doorways originally sealed by Shahjahan have been since unsealed and again walled up several times. In 1934 a resident of Delhi took a peep inside from an opening in the upper part of the doorway. To his dismay he saw huge hall inside. It contained many statues huddled around a central beheaded image of Lord Shiva. It could be that, in there, are Sanskrit inscriptions too. All the seven stories of the Tajmahal need to be unsealed and scoured to ascertain what evidence they may be hiding in the form of Hindu images, Sanskrit inscriptions, scriptures, coins and utensils.

69. Apart from Hindu images hidden in the sealed stories it is also learnt that Hindu images are also stored in the massive walls of the Taj. Between 1959 and 1962 when Mr. S.R. Rao was the Archealogical Superintendent in Agra, he happened to notice a deep and wide crack in the wall of the central octagonal chamber of the Taj. When a part of the wall was dismantled to study the crack out popped two or three marble images. The matter was hushed up and the images were reburied where they had been embedded at Shahjahan's behest. Confirmation of this has been obtained from several sources. It was only when I began my investigation into the antecedents of the Taj I came across the above information which had remained a forgotten secret. What better proof is needed of the Temple origin of the Tajmahal? Its walls and sealed chambers still hide in Hindu idols that were consecrated in it before Shahjahan's seizure of the Taj.


PRE-SHAHJAHAN REFERENCES TO THE TAJ
70. Apparently the Taj as a central palace seems to have an chequered history. The Taj was perhaps desecrated and looted by every Muslim invader from Mohammad Ghazni onwards but passing into Hindu hands off and on, the sanctity of the Taj as a Shiva temple continued to be revived after every muslim onslaught. Shahjahan was the last muslim to desecrate the Tajmahal alias Tejomahalay.

71. Vincent Smith records in his book titled `Akbar the Great Moghul' that `Babur's turbulent life came to an end in his garden palace in Agra in 1630'. That palace was none other than the Tajmahal. 72. Babur's daughter Gulbadan Begum in her chronicle titled `Humayun Nama' refers to the Taj as the Mystic House.

73. Babur himself refers to the Taj in his memoirs as the palace captured by Ibrahim Lodi containing a central octagonal chamber and having pillars on the four sides. All these historical references allude to the Taj 100 years before Shahjahan.

74. The Tajmahal precincts extend to several hundred yards in all directions. Across the river are ruins of the annexes of the Taj, the bathing ghats and a jetty for the ferry boat. In the Victoria gardens outside covered with creepers is the long spur of the ancient outer wall ending in a octagonal red stone tower. Such extensive grounds all magnificently done up, are a superfluity for a grave.

75. Had the Taj been specially built to bury Mumtaz, it should not have been cluttered with other graves. But the Taj premises contain several graves atleast in its eastern and southern pavilions.

76. In the southern flank, on the other side of the Tajganj gate are buried in identical pavilions queens Sarhandi Begum, and Fatehpuri Begum and a maid Satunnisa Khanum. Such parity burial can be justified only if the queens had been demoted or the maid promoted. But since Shahjahan had commandeered (not built) the Taj, he reduced it general to a muslim cemetary as was the habit of all his Islamic predeccssors, and buried a queen in a vacant pavillion and a maid in another idenitcal pavilion.

77. Shahjahan was married to several other women before and after Mumtaz. She, therefore, deserved no special consideration in having a wonder mausoleum built for her.

78. Mumtaz was a commoner by birth and so she did not qualify for a fairyland burial.

79. Mumtaz died in Burhanpur which is about 600 miles from Agra. Her grave there is intact.
Therefore, the centotaphs raised in stories of the Taj in her name seem to be fakes hiding in Hindu Shiva emblems.

80. Shahjahan seems to have simulated Mumtaz's burial in Agra to find a pretext to surround the temple palace with his fierce and fanatic troops and remove all the costly fixtures in his treasury. This finds confirmation in the vague noting in the Badshahnama which says that the Mumtaz's (exhumed) body was brought to Agra from Burhanpur and buried `next year'. An official term would not use a nebulous term unless it is to hide some thing.

81. A pertinent consideration is that a Shahjahan who did not build any palaces for Mumtaz while she was alive, would not build a fabulous mausoleum for a corpse which was no longer kicking or clicking.

82. Another factor is that Mumtaz died within two or three years of Shahjahan becoming an emperor. Could he amass so much superflous wealth in that short span as to squander it on a wonder mausoleum?

83. While Shahjahan's special attachment to Mumtaz is nowhere recorded in history his amorous affairs with many other ladies from maids to mannequins including his own daughter Jahanara, find special attention in accounts of Shahjahan's reign. Would Shahjahan shower his hard earned wealth on Mumtaz's corpse?

84. Shahjahan was a stingy, usurious monarch. He came to throne murdering all his rivals. He was not therefore, the doting spendthrift that he is made out to be.

85. A Shahjahan disconsolate on Mumtaz's death is suddenly credited with a resolve to build the Taj. This is a psychological incongruity. Grief is a disabling, incapacitating emotion.

86. A infatuated Shahjahan is supposed to have raised the Taj over the dead Mumtaz, but carnal love is again a incapacitating emotion. A womanizer is ipso facto incapable of any constructive activity. When carnal love becomes uncontrollable the person either murders somebody or commits suicide. He cannot raise a Tajmahal. A building like the Taj invariably originates in an ennobling emotion like devotion to God, to one's mother and mother country or power and glory.

87. Early in the year 1973, chance digging in the garden in front of the Taj revealed another set of fountains about six feet below the present fountains. This proved two things. Firstly, the subterranean fountains were there before Shahjahan laid the surface fountains. And secondly that those fountains are aligned to the Taj that edifice too is of pre Shahjahan origin. Apparently the garden and its fountains had sunk from annual monsoon flooding and lack of maintenance for centuries during the Islamic rule.

89. The stately rooms on the upper floor of the Tajmahal have been striped of their marble mosaic by Shahjahan to obtain matching marble for raising fake tomb stones inside the Taj premises at several places. Contrasting with the rich finished marble ground floor rooms the striping of the marble mosaic covering the lower half of the walls and flooring of the upper storey have given those rooms a naked, robbed look. Since no visitors are allowed entry to the upper storey this despoilation by Shahjahan has remained a well guarded secret. There is no reason why Shahjahan's loot of the upper floor marble should continue to be hidden from the public even after 200 years of termination of Moghul rule.

90. Bernier, the French traveller has recorded that no non muslim was allowed entry into the secret chambers of the Taj because there are some dazzling fixtures there. Had those been installed by Shahjahan they should have been shown the public as a matter of pride. But since it was commandeered Hindu wealth which Shahjahan wanted to remove to his treasury, he didn't want the public to know about it.

91. The approach to Taj is dotted with hillocks raised with earth dugout from foundation trenches. The hillocks served as outer defences of the Taj building complex. Raising such hillocks from foundation earth, is a common Hindu device of hoary origin. Nearby Bharatpur provides a graphic parallel.
Peter Mundy has recorded that Shahjahan employed thousands of labourers to level some of those hillocks. This is a graphic proof of the Tajmahal existing before Shahjahan.

93. At the backside of the river bank is a Hindu crematorium, several palaces, Shiva temples and bathings of ancient origin. Had Shahjahan built the Tajmahal, he would have destroyed the Hindu features.

94. The story that Shahjahan wanted to build a Black marble Taj across the river, is another motivated myth. The ruins dotting the other side of the river are those of Hindu structures demolished during muslim invasions and not the plinth of another Tajmahal. Shahjahan who did not even build the white Tajmahal would hardly ever think of building a black marble Taj. He was so miserly that he forced labourers to work gratis even in the superficial tampering neccesary to make a Hindu temple serve as a Muslim tomb.

95. The marble that Shahjahan used for grafting Koranic lettering in the Taj is of a pale white shade while the rest of the Taj is built of a marble with rich yellow tint. This disparity is proof of the Koranic extracts being a superimposition.

96. Though imaginative attempts have been made by some historians to foist some fictitious name on history as the designer of the Taj others more imaginative have credited Shajahan himself with superb architechtural proficiency and artistic talent which could easily conceive and plan the Taj even in acute bereavement. Such people betray gross ignorance of history in as much as Shajahan was a cruel tyrant ,a great womaniser and a drug and drink addict.

97. Fanciful accounts about Shahjahan commisioning the Taj are all confused. Some asserted that Shahjahan ordered building drawing from all over the world and chose one from among them. Others assert that a man at hand was ordered to design a mausoleum and his design was approved. Had any of those versions been true Shahjahan's court papers should have had thousands of drawings concerning the Taj. But there is not even a single drawing. This is yet another clinching proof that Shahjahan did not commision the Taj.

98. The Tajmahal is surrounded by huge mansions which indicate that several battles have been waged around the Taj several times.

99. At the south east corner of the Taj is an ancient royal cattle house. Cows attached to the Tejomahalay temple used to reared there. A cowshed is an incongruity in an Islamic tomb.

100. Over the western flank of the Taj are several stately red stone annexes. These are superflous for a mausoleum.

101. The entire Taj complex comprises of 400 to 500 rooms. Residential accomodation on such a stupendous scale is unthinkable in a mausoleum.

102. The neighbouring Tajganj township's massive protective wall also encloses the Tajmahal temple palace complex. This is a clear indication that the Tejomahalay temple palace was part and parcel of the township. A street of that township leads straight into the Tajmahal. The Tajganj gate is aligned in a perfect straight line to the octagonal red stone garden gate and the stately entrance arch of the Tajmahal. The Tajganj gate besides being central to the Taj temple complex, is also put on a pedestal. The western gate by which the visitors enter the Taj complex is a camparatively minor gateway. It has become the entry gate for most visitors today because the railway station and the bus station are on that side.

103. The Tajmahal has pleasure pavilions which a tomb would never have.

104. A tiny mirror glass in a gallery of the Red Fort in Agra reflects the Taj mahal. Shahjahan is said to have spent his last eight years of life as a prisoner in that gallery peering at the reflected Tajmahal and sighing in the name of Mumtaz. This myth is a blend of many falsehoods. Firstly,old Shajahan was held prisoner by his son Aurangzeb in the basement storey in the Fort and not in an open,fashionable upper storey. Secondly, the glass piece was fixed in the 1930's by Insha Allah Khan, a peon of the archaelogy dept.just to illustrate to the visitors how in ancient times the entire apartment used to scintillate with tiny mirror pieces reflecting the Tejomahalay temple a thousand fold. Thirdly, a old decrepit Shahjahan with pain in his joints and cataract in his eyes, would not spend his day craning his neck at an awkward angle to peer into a tiny glass piece with bedimmed eyesight when he could as well his face around and have full,direct view of the Tjamahal itself. But the general public is so gullible as to gulp all such prattle of wily, unscrupulous guides.

105. That the Tajmahal dome has hundreds of iron rings sticking out of its exterior is a feature rarely noticed. These are made to hold Hindu earthen oil lamps for temple illumination.

106. Those putting implicit faith in Shahjahan authorship of the Taj have been imagining Shahjahan-Mumtaz to be a soft hearted romantic pair like Romeo and Juliet. But contemporary accounts speak of Shahjahan as a hard hearted ruler who was constantly egged on to acts of tyranny and cruelty, by Mumtaz.

107. School and College history carry the myth that Shahjahan reign was a golden period in which there was peace and plenty and that Shahjahan commisioned many buildings and patronized literature. This is pure fabrication. Shahjahan did not commision even a single building as I have illustrated by a detailed analysis of the Tajmahal legend. Shahjahn had to enrage in 48 military campaigns during a reign of nearly 30 years which proves that his was not a era of peace and plenty.

108. The interior of the dome rising over Mumtaz's centotaph has a representation of Sun and cobras drawn in gold. Hindu warriors trace their origin to the Sun. For an Islamic mausoleum the Sun is redundant. Cobras are always associated with Lord Shiva.


FORGED DOCUMENTS
109. The Muslim caretakers of the tomb in the Tajmahal used to possess a document which they styled as "Tarikh-i-Tajmahal". Historian H.G. Keene has branded it as `a document of doubtful authenticity'. Keene was uncannily right since we have seen that Shahjahan not being the creator of the Tajmahal any document which credits Shahjahn with the Tajmahal, must be an outright forgery. Even that forged document is reported to have been smuggled out of Pakistan. Besides such forged documents there are whole chronicles on the Taj which are pure concoctions.

110. There is lot of sophistry and casuistry or atleast confused thinking associated with the Taj even in the minds of proffesional historians, archaelogists and architects. At the outset they assert that the Taj is entirely Muslim in design. But when it is pointed out that its lotus capped dome and the four corner pillars etc. are all entirely Hindu those worthies shift ground and argue that that was probably because the workmen were Hindu and were to introduce their own patterns. Both these arguments are wrong because Muslim accounts claim the designers to be Muslim,and the workers invariably carry out the employer's dictates.
The Taj is only a typical illustration of how all historic buildings and townships from Kashmir to Cape Comorin though of Hindu origin have been ascribed to this or that Muslim ruler or courtier.
It is hoped that people all over the world who study Indian history will be awaken to this new finding and revise their erstwhile beliefs.
Those interested in an indepth study of the above and many other revolutionary rebuttals may read this author's other research books.

Problems of Life

1st Story

Once Krishna and Balaram were passing through a forest, after getting tired they stopped near a tree. They had some fruits and lie down under the tree, soon after some time they got slept. At the midnight while they were sleeping a big Monster came and started laughing on seeing two humans. Today I won’t sleep hungry…he thought. Hearing his voice Balaram woke up and saw the big Monster standing in front of him. He got scared, he was so big and was looking like a big mountain standing in front of him. The Monster started laughing again…Balaram started shivering, Monster grew in his size and Balaram shrank. Again he laughed, Balaram again shrank in his size and the Monster grew more. By seeing his size the Monster laughed more loudly and further grew in size and Balaram screamed Krishna…and felt unconscious on the ground.
Hearing his brother’s scream, Krishna woke up and he also saw the big Monster laughing on him. He asked him what do you want? The Monster got surprised by seeing the courage of Krishna and tried to make him scary but this time he shrank in his size and Krishna grew up. Again Krishna asked him, what do you want? This further lead to the Monster shrank in his size and Monster tried again but this time he shrank so much in size that Krishna took him in his hands and kept him in his belt.
In the morning when Balaram woke up, he said to Krishna: you know what happened in the night, a giant Monster had come to kill us. From the god’s grace we were saved. Then Krishna took the Monster out from his belt and asked if this was the Monster…!!!!

Moral: If you run away from your problems it will come back in bigger shapes and if you stand firmly against it and fights back it will shrank and run away.

2nd Story
Once upon a time in a small village of Jamnagar two kid’s bholu and somu used to live. Bholu was 9 years old and somu was 6 years old. One day the two friends were playing in the niche of the village. Suddenly bholu fell down in a well present in the corner of the field, he started screaming but no one was there to hear his cry apart from the little somu. Somu ran towards the well to help his friend but he was unable to do anything…he looked around for someone but no one was there to help his ailing friend. Without making a second thought he took the bucket present there and thrown in the well and asked bholu to catch it tightly and he started pulling the rope…he kept on pulling until his friend was saved. He was very happy on seeing his friend back, they hugged each other and suddenly they started thinking what they will tell at the home as they might get punished for their act.

When they reached their village, everyone started asking for being so late. They told each and every thing happened in the ground. But nobody believed them and everyone started laughing on their story. Sarpanch of the village told his father that because of the fear they are telling some stories as how can somu being so small can save bholu who is so build up and much bigger in size than him. But there was a wise man in the village Bhagwan Das, he said I believe them Somu had saved bholu. Everyone was surprised as Bhagwan Das was considered as the most wise and respected person in the village. They asked him the same question that how somu can save bholu, he didn’t even have a match. Bhagwan Das laughed and said they are telling the same thing no…they are explaining how he threw the bucket in the water and pulled until he assured that bholu is safe. Everyone was shocked, then Bhagwan Das spoke, see where somu saved bholu, nobody was present there to tell somu that he can’t do it, nobody…not even somu himself...!!!

Moral: Anyone can do anything…only one person in the world can stop you from achieving something and that is none other than YOU.

Yet Another Love....Story...!!!!

Mayank was a very ordinary boy but still very different from other guys specially guys of his own age group. He born and brought up in a small city of Baitul in M.P. With utmost difficulties and troubles he studied in a reputed school where he got the admission partially because of his marks and partially because of sacrifices made by his family members to bear the extra expenses.
At the very first day of his so called reputed school he felt like being an alien in the human world because everything felt different from the things that he had seen till that day, that Volleyball court, the big cycle stand where he went to park his new bicycle, students coming in big cars and some with their bodyguards, those big buildings and smart class-rooms, the big cricket ground, lot of big laboratories and the big Library. Everything looked as if these were pretty different from what he has till now in his school.  One thing that he felt amazed after seeing was the game of Volleyball; though that was the first time in his life he had seen that game but he felt a unique attachment with that game but the irony was he doesn’t even know how to play that damn game.

Mayank was not a very sigh kind of a boy but he doesn’t bothers much what others were doing and thinking about him. His first year of his high school (10+2) i.e. the 11th standard was very quiet and spent mostly in his adjustments with the standard or the way of living of other students. No. of times he was treated as underdog as apart from the usual studies he won’t take active participation in any cultural/ co-cultural activities of the school but he really spent the quality time in learning the Volleyball. His hard work paid him in good time as he was selected in the team in his very first year and sooner he became one of the most potential players of the team.

Time went like the dried leaves of autumn and soon he came to 12th standard.  Mayank never thought of being a headliner but a stalwart. Now he was considered as one of the sound characters who can do well in studies as well as sports. Soon, in the mid spring of his 12th, he was appointed as the captain of the school volleyball team and he had to lead the team for the annual central zone school champion’s trophy. This was one of the biggest events of his life; he was feeling as if he was walking on the seventh heaven. Modern Public School, Delhi was hosting the event and nearly 24 different Modern Public Schools across the country were competing in the different sports. The event were about to start in Mid November, so he had a sound span of two months and he had to make the most of those two months. September’ 05, the Teacher’s day was being celebrated in the school but Mayank was in the Volleyball court busy with his coach and sports teacher Mr. Santhosh Rai Chand, discussing the team strengths and weaknesses. Mr. Santhosh a retired army major had a very terrifying build-up. The 6 ft tall retired major have a unique habit of puffing a special Swiss made cigar and  that too while discussing the minutest of the artifacts of the game. Practicing on Saturdays and Sundays soon became a routine for the Mayank’s team; he was giving his everything to make an impression as the captain and try to bring the trophy back to home. The last time the school won any finals in any of the sports was way back to 2000 but after that it was a mere drought for the school and Mr. Santhosh and the management was banking heavily on the Volleyball team. The team was comprised of 9 very talented volleyball players of the school, 5 from commerce section, 2 from the biology section and 2 including Mayank from the Maths section. The team was good but Mayank knows that mere class players can’t win matches rather it’s the performance on a particular day decides on which way coin will flip. So Mayank doesn’t wants to leave a single stone unturned and was giving his 100 percent to get 100 percent of his team. Soon days passed and the deciding month of November came. The event were about to start from Nov’8th and they have to leave by Nov’5th, the first match of the M.P.S baithul was with M.P.S Kolkata on Nov’9th.

Their traveling plan was quite unique as first they have to go M.P.S Kanpur for some formal verification as Kanpur was the main governing body of M.P.S Society and from Kanpur they have to leave for Delhi. Jansatabdai Express left at its scheduled time of 1900 hrs from Baitul Railway Station for Kanpur Central. They reached Kanpur the next day by 900 hrs railway times, the sports secretary of the M.P.S society was present with some of his officials and some other teams from different sports may be of M.P.S Kanpur itself.

Mr. Santosh took the charge of completing formalities with other officials and the teams were busy in having their breakfast. Mayank was sitting on the window seat of boggy no. S4 with Nitesh his best buddy in school and a great chess player was trying some fresh prepared Jalebis.
Train was about to leave by 1000 hrs but thanks to the railway department for making it wait for 1 more hour. Mayank got up to wash his hands and the moment he turned he got a hard blow on his head by a big VIP suitcase. Full of choler he rose and was about to scold the person responsible for the blow but what he saw made him a statue at least for a minute or two…!! A very pretty face was in front of him saying sorry while handling the big suitcase. He was unable to see anything apart from that parrot green dupatta flying on his face. His amnesia got broken from her sweet voice….”I am so sorry…!” Then only he realized that he needs to help the girl. After they settled down the luggage she sat on the seat just opposite to Mayank. Mayank was feeling like being in a magical world, nothing was there in the train apart from that beautiful face. I am so sorry….again she said this time he replied hey…no issues…it was my mistake I hadn’t seen you hiding the pain on his face. Hi…I am Mahi….Mahi Singh...Saying that she gave her hand for shake hand and Mayank just took her hand in his and kept staring at her saying without a word.
After she jolted her hand and his friends started hollering he came to reality and said hi…!! ammmm Mayank... He again saw her face…she was smiling…he was just getting lost in that smile…finally he asked her if she was from MPS Kanpur? She was also going to the same place where he was going…actually the students from MPS Kanpur had to join them…and she was representing the Badminton team of MPS Kanpur. After few minutes train started its journey all the way to Delhi. During that period of time Mayank and Mahi had their formal introduction. Mahi and Shruti had their seats in S4 and rest of the students of their school had their seats in S1 thanks to their unscheduled plan of participation. Mahi and Shruti were best friends and both were the 12th standard science students. Shruti was participating in Basketball very fair taking care of her gifted height.
The train reached Delhi at around 1900 hrs on the same day and after their strange journey of 8 hrs from Kanpur Mayank and Mahi went with their groups. After that Mayank hadn’t seen her on that day…he also thought why she would be interested in him and went busy with his friends…enjoying the hospitality of MPS Delhi.
The tournament was to start from Nov’8th and their first match was on 9th with MPS Kolkata which was the last champion of the game. Other games were about to start from 8th only. Mayank started focusing on the practice and was looking forward for the first match with local team of MPS Delhi on Nov’9th but in some part of his heart he was having a feeling of getting a glimpse of Mahi…he can’t get her away from his mind. On Nov’9th during his first practice match Mayank was leading his team from the front. He was standing at the place of smasher and had earned three great points for his team by his unstoppable smashes. They only needed three more points to win their first match. Just after the eighth rally when the game started Mayank came at the place of server, he was about to do his favorite under arm spin serve suddenly in the sitting stand he saw the same pretty face of Mahi…and before he think something else he had served and the ball went way away from the court loosing the service to the opposite team. His teammates were asking him and he was seeing the smiling face of Mahi…after his coach went to him he started focusing on the game and this time he was happy…very happy…from the deepest layers of his heart. They won the match easily and after the match Mayank went to see Mahi…and after twenty minutes of his search he was able to figure out the prettiest face. They talked almost an hour before shruti came looking for her.

Mayank’s team was performing really well in the tournament, they had won three matches in a row and now MPS Baitul was in the semifinals. The tournament was to end on 13th of November and Mayank hadn’t seen Mahi after they met during his first match. He was thinking if he would be able to see her and as the tournament was approaching towards its end his worries were also escalating. She might be busy in her game…and why in the world will she come to meet me…he thought. Anyway he has to concentrate on the semis as they have a real chance to win the tournament. However for him reaching in finals was more important than winning the tournament as Nitesh has informed him that Mahi has reached into finals of the Badminton tournament. Reaching into finals…why was it so important than winning the game…? Nitesh asked him…!!! Then Mayank told him about the Prom night…he told him that all the teams who failed to enter into finals had to leave on 12th morning itself and all the finalists will attend the closing party of the tournament which includes a Prom night party. Again he will have a chance to meet Mahi…may be for the last time…!!!
After winning their semifinals, Mayank was going for an outing with his teammates as they hardly had any team to see the eccentricity of the National Capital. When he was stepping out of the school premises he saw a group of girls coming from out and Mahi and Shruti were also there. Mayank desperately wanted to congratulate her for winning the Badminton tournament (On the same day he cleared his semis, she won the finals). He went towards her but to his utmost surprise she moved away with her friends…as if she didn’t saw him at all…or…she just neglected him…like an unknown person…why the hell I cares…let her go…I don’t need to go to her…he thought in his mind and joined his friends who were waiting outside. Let alone be the anger he had but in some part of his heart he got hurt. How can she do like this to him…he thought…they are big school girls…they have their own attitude…Why in the world they will bother about some small town guys like them. This event proved a boon for him and his team as he was more focused on the game and was giving his everything to win the finals. He was not even thinking of her…not even for a moment…after coming to know that they have to compete with the MPS Kanpur in finals he was feeling like having a golden opportunity to show what a small city guy can do…she will be there to support her school in the finals and he wanted to make that opportunity a count by defeating her side and showing his class of game.

At 1600 hrs of Nov’12th the finals of volleyball event was scheduled, Mayank and his team reached the court at 1500 hrs only. As this was the last outdoor event of the “BACON – Lets bring it back” (The proud name of the sports tournament) lot of spectators were present in the ground to witness the finals. But Mayank was waiting for only one spectator…to whom he want to show his game…he was eager to see her witnessing the defeat of her school team. The game started with the whistle of the refry and a sharp pointed tennis serve came to their court and before anyone could react it made its mark. MPS Kanpur was a really good team to play…Mayank’s side were lagging…it was a five set game and they had already lost two sets in a row…now they had had to win all three sets to hold the BACON. Mr. Santhosh was explaining some points to the team when Mayank saw Mahi…sitting in the left stand in the 3rd row…wearing a white churridar…she was amazingly beautiful…Mayank thought something in his mind and went to his coach. After a break of ten minutes…and after the fixed relay…the game started again…Mayank jumped forward and saved a brilliant smash made by the opposite team’s smasher…they won the next two sets…now the game was standing at two-two…final set will be crucial and decisive one. He had to get those fifteen points (as it was the last set only fifteen points were needed to win it). MPS Kanpur was leading with 9-4; crowd was cheering the winning side. Prashant took the serve and sent to kapil…kapil boosted it in the air…Mayank took a bright jump in the air and smash…nobody moved…he scored…they got the point…he saw in the crowds…again after sometime he scored three more points. At the next relay, they were standing at 13-11; they needed two more points to clear all the mess. Captain himself took the charge of serve and shoot a plain swing serve…someone tried to shoot back it in air but it swigged round and went out of court…now game point and match point…everyone was looking at him…Mayank throw the ball in air…took the highest possible jump that he could gave a sharp hit on the ball…it went like a bullet to the opposition’s court…but they were not ordinary team too…received the serve…lifted it…boosted and smashed back to their court…again Mayank made a smart jump towards his left and saved the smash…lifted the ball…Prashant boosted it…and Ravi chipped it over the net…blockers moved…but till then ball was already put down…they had made the history…they have won the beacon…they jumped over one another…Mayank looked in the sky and then in the stands…she was not there…!!! Nitesh came and gave him a tight hug…you made it man...I knew it…only you could have done that…he said. But Mayank was looking in the stands with his empty eyes…Nitesh realizing the thing…asked him to forget her…and they moved away to lift their Beacon…!!! That night went in celebrations and party…

The closing day of the ceremony…Nov’13th was full of speeches and presentations of so-called big delegates followed by some cultural events but the main attraction was the Prom Night party which was scheduled to start at 8’O clock in the night. Only 40-50 students along with some officials were there…thanks to the protocol of having finalists only…!!!
The party started with the usual RJ’s bash…and soon spread among students…Mayank was not feeling comfortable as he was quite new to these kinds of parties and places…so, he better thought of staying away from the league and watching the things progressing. He saw Mahi…she was looking stunning in her yellow dress…but she was busy with her friends…he wanted to talk to her…but couldn't get the chance…after an hour of having snacks and drinks (soft ones off course) RJ made the announcement of the Ball dance… (Ball dance is a form of dance which only couples can do). Guys had to ask their Pal’s hand for the dance and that opportunity became the biggest thorn for Mayank. He wanted to ask Mahi for the dance but he was unable to get the courage for that. Nitesh asked for the hand of Shruti and went to the floor…now he was standing alone in the corner…seeing everyone dancing…he felt more bruised when a guy asked Mahi’s hand and she went with him for the dance. He started thinking…why he is thinking so much of this girl…see her class…do he even match with that…how could he dance with such a good girl…ok..Fine she had talked him once or twice rather…so what…its very common for them…he thought. He kept staring at his empty glass…hi…some sweet voice came to his ears…he turned around…Mahi was standing…he didn't said anything…again she said…hi…the glass he was having felt from his hands…after the breaking of glass wake him he said sss…sorry…haa..hi…sorry… I didn’t seen you…he said…yeah…that’s why I came to you no…Mahi replied…congratulations…you made your school proud…I saw you play…really you are a class player…thanks…thanks a lot…and many congratulations to you also…sorry I couldn't saw your game… I was busy in my semis on that day…Mayank said. Can we dance…she asked…Mayank was looking at her…then he said…I wanted to ask you but couldn't…I know…you won’t…she said…and started smiling again...but I know nothing about dancing…don’t worry it’s not a rocket science just follow my steps…ball dance is one of the easiest form of dance…she said. Slowly…slowly…following her steps…Mayank started dancing…that was one of the best moments of his life…he never thought of he would be holding her hands and dancing with her. They danced for more than an hour… Mayank asked her...can we go out…? as this may be our last meeting… !!! I want to talk to you…they went to terrace of the school.  It was a full moon night…sky was filled stars glittering in the illuminating light of moon…as if they were sharing their happiness with them.

They talked about everything...right from their families to friends...schools...their likes...dislikes...anything and everything...they went on talking whole of the night...still they had whole of the world to share with one another...Mahi told him that he was the best guy she had ever met with and Mayank told same for her.

Indian History…it’s still a Mystery

India a land of Honor... India a land of Cultures… India a land of Traditions... India a land of Pride… really India is widely incredible in so many things not only in terms of diversity of language, traditions, cultures and people but also in terms of its Mysterious history.

Pick any book… surf any site… what you come to know… ask any historian… ask any professor… what they will tell to you… All these sources will tell you one and the same thing… that India was invaded by the Aryans in somewhat around 2600 B.C and the Aryans spread their region in all the regions spreading from Kashmir in North to Narmada in south, Afghanistan in west to Bihar in east. The region is termed as SAPTA SINDHU as seven rivers were termed in the Vedas and other books of that period.        

One more common thing you will find in the facts provided by them… all of them have ambiguity regarding two facts… first from where these Aryans came to India where they were of the Indian origin only or they came from some distant place in Middle east and second what was before the so called Aryan Invention… or how was the Pre-Aryan period if there was any..??

Mesopotamia “The land between the Tigris and Euphrates” is considered as the place where the first civilization of the world born. The present day Iraq is considered to bestow with the fortune of having most ancient civilization which occurred somewhat around 5000 B.C. After that came the Egyptian Civilization somewhat around 3500 B.C. The ancient and now extinct language of Egypt under the Pharaohs has written records dated back to 3000 BC and then the bronze-age culture of the Indus valley came that flourished from about 2600-1750 BC in India.

But the question is that was this really true…? Was Indian civilization which is called as Indus Valley Civilization was not the first civilization..?? Then what about our epics The Ramayana and the Mahabharata…? Why these epics talks about the things that happened thousands of years before the occurrence of Mesopotamian civilization…are our epics were just stories and myths as told by the west at number of places.

Then why after successfully inventing first atomic bomb of the world “Oppenheimer” said that this is not the first time humans have made an atom bomb rather it’s the first time in modern period and quoted the lines from “Bhagwat Geeta” saying “I became the death…destroyer of mankind” and surprisingly the text from Geeta talks about the “Brahmastra” most deadliest weapon of that time which follows a parabolic path and reaches its target and cause the same destruction an atom bomb causes in the very same way.

What about the pyramidal structures of The Great Pyramids of Egypt… from where the Egyptians got to know about the geometry when we were the ones who invented geometry and spread in the entire world. What about the Sumerian civilization of southern region of Babylonia in present-day Iraq the site of the Sumerian civilization of city-states that flowered during the third millennium BC. Can’t it be possible that will be talking about the SU-Meru? In Sanskrit (the oldest language and once most prosperous language of mankind) a mountain is called as Meru and in many of the old Hindu texts the Kailash Mountains are called as Su-Meru meaning Supreme Holy Mountain.  Many texts and ancient stories of Mesopotamian civilization have a direct or indirect resemblance with our texts and stories. Say for example: Hindu scriptures and Vedas talks about Sura and Asura the very same references were made in the ancient scriptures of Mesopotamia. They talk about a very mighty river of that time which died completely after the deadliest war of that time. Even our Mahabharata talks about the great mighty river Saraswati which got dried after the Great War of Bharat called Mahabharata within the Kuru Clan.

Dr. S. R Rao the father of Indian archaeology after an extensive research of over a decade on Krishna found a lot of proofs regarding the existence of Dwarka as it was talked about in Geeta. He found the whole of the wet dwarka which is now emerged in the sea a few kilometers away from the present day dwarka.

Dr. M. Prabhakaran after doing a whole life research on Ancient Nuclear wars wrote in his book about his findings. In his book he stated that few sites nearby the dried river-bed of river saraswati have found with tremendous amount of nuclear radiations even higher than which is found in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Skeletons found in the site of Kalibanga in Hanumangarh in Rajasthan and the human skulls found with highest ever found nuclear radiation dated around 5000 B.C in Rajasthan. All these things points to one and only one thing... a mystery...!!!

Isn’t possible that the Indian civilization was the first civilization of Mankind on earth and it shall be called as Saraswati Civilization rather than Indus Valley civilization and after the great war of Mahabharata the people of the region got spread around the world especially in Middle East and flourish themselves.

Whatever be the fact… whatever may be the truth… one thing I can say that Indian history is still a very big Mystery.

Vicious Circle of Life

Life is a very unique gift from the nature to all the living being in the world.
It's unique panorama of spreading colors and happiness in different ways is quite illustrative.

Life is a vicious circle...not only for any one food chain or other but for everything...the point from where it starts....after gaining all  the experiences and seeing all the fruits of the season it comes back  to the same point again.
 We can find that property of nature in everything, take the example of our universe....scientists says...it started with a point and from that time its expanding and after some time again it will go from infinity to  singularity.
This vicious circle exists everywhere....even in our life style.

Loksabha elections 2014

India the largest democracy in the world is going to face yet another dance of democracy and that too in the holy month of April. The month which we Indians celebrates as our new year, the month in which we starts the life with new rays of hope and ambitions, the month in which farmers starts putting seeds for new life, the month with which our financial year starts. Overall a month of new fruits, new looms, new blossoms and this time it will show the country a new way of life, a way which will be productive, a way which will be ever growing, a way which will be full of ideas and zeal to lead the life in the best possible way.

No doubt that only two political parties are leading in the front for the top embassy in the center of country, “Congress and BJP” one which is ever ending omnipresent from the time of British the big All India Congress which now do the politics under the umbrella of “United Progressive Alliance(UPA)” an alliance full of so called secular and seclude minded political giants consisting of “Samajwadi Party(S.P)” of Mulayam singh Yadav and his heir son Akhilesh Singh Yadav, the arch rival of S.P “Bahujan Samajwadi Party(BSP)” of Mayawati (in U.P), “Rastriya Janta Dal (RJD)”   of Lalu Prasad Yadav, RLD (Rastriya Lok Dal) of Ram Vilash Paswan, “Jharkhand Mukti Morcha(JMM)” of Sibbo Soren in Bihar and Jharkhand, Naveen Patnaik in Orrisa, CPI, CPM and their arch rival Mamta Bennarji  in West Bengal, DMK in Tamil Nadu, Sharad Pawar in Maharastra, National Conference in Jammu & Kashmir led by CONGRESS in the center. The whole bunch of these political gurus will be led by the congress stalwart Mrs. Sonia Gandhi heir Rahul Gandhi and a gallop of congress men.
The other side representing the common middle class society and working for the majority rather than resting on the minor class politics “National Democratic Alliance(NDA)” consisting of “Shiv Sena in Maharastra”, “Akali Dal led by Prakash Singh Badal in Punjab”, “Rastryiya Swayam Sevak Sangh, Bajrang Dal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and a no. of hindu organizations seeing the man of BJP as the last hope of hindus”, “KJP in Karnataka”, “AIDMK led by Jayalalitha in Tamil Nadu” with “Bhartiya Janta Party” led by Gujarat Strong Man “Narendra Modi” in the center.
Lot of parties are there in a fray of changing royalties and jumping for the sake of powers, but for that it has wait for the final whistle of the elections. Still 6 months are there for the elections which will witness a lot of changes in the royalties, stages and political shreds.
