In search of Mumtaz (Part 1)

She inspired thousands to create the ultimate tribute to woman.
Her inspiration started after bearing the man - 14 children in a span of 18 years.
It took 22 years to complete and is over 243ft tall.
It is a masterpiece of symmetry & style - except where the man lies - in peace - next to his wife.
So we decided to go in search of Mumtaz!!!

Part 1 - On the road - Delhi to Agra
Vishal , Tina & me undertook this quest.
For the uninitiated - Tina is my sister and Vishal is one of my buddies from kindergarden!!

That's Vishal & Tina

Oh - that's Vishal & yours truly!!

The road was calm, the travelling smooth, the air chilly as we left Delhi. Our first stop - the Gas station. Second Stop - highway dhaba for a heavy brunch. We covered the 200kms + distance in about 5 hours to land at the eastern gate of the Taj at 3 PM...

The last 2 kms we, covered by rickshaw!!!
