  • A Poem so meaningfully written

    The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet neatly
    tucked under four corners of a mattress located in a hospital; busily
    occupied with the living and the dying. At a certain moment a doctor
    will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all
    intents and purposes, my life has stopped.

    When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my
    body by the use of a machine. And don’t call this my deathbed. Let it
    be called the bed of life, and let my body be taken from it to help
    others lead fuller lives.

    Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby’s face
    or love in the eyes of a woman.
    Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but
    endless days of pain.
    Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his
    car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.
    Give my kidneys to the one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week.
    Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find
    a way to make a crippled child walk.

    Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary, and let
    them grow so that, someday a speechless boy will shout at the crack of
    a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window.

    Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the
    flowers grow. If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my
    weakness and all prejudice against my fellow man.

    Give my sins to the devil. Give my soul to God. If, by chance, you
    wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who
    needs you.

    Palace in Barhanpur where Mumtaz died

    Pavilion where Mumtaz is said to be buried

    NOW READ THIS…….

    No one has ever challenged it except Prof. P. N. Oak, who believes the
    whole world has been duped. In his book Taj Mahal: The True Story, Oak says
    the
    Taj Mahal is not Queen Mumtaz’s tomb but an ancient Hindu temple palace of
    Lord Shiva (then known as Tejo Mahalaya ) . In the course of his research

    Oak discovered that the Shiva temple palace was usurped by Shah Jahan from
    then Maharaja of Jaipur, Jai Singh. In his own court chronicle,
    Badshahnama, Shah Jahan admits that an exceptionally beautiful grand mansion in Agra
    was taken from Jai SIngh for Mumtaz’s burial . The ex-Maharaja of Jaipur
    still retains in his secret collection two orders from Shah Jahan for
    surrendering the Taj building. Using captured temples and mansions, as a
    burial place for dead courtiers and royalty was a common practice among Muslim rulers.

    For example, Humayun, Akbar, Etmud-ud-Daula and Safdarjung are all buried
    in such mansions. Oak’s inquiries began with the name of Taj Mahal. He says

    the term ” Mahal ” has never been used for a building in any Muslim countries
    from Afganisthan to Algeria . “The unusual explanation that the term Taj
    Mahal derives from Mumtaz Mahal was illogical in atleast two respects.

    Firstly, her name was never Mumtaz Mahal but Mumtaz-ul-Zamani ,” he writes.
    Secondly, one cannot omit the first three letters ‘Mum’ from a woman’s
    name to derive the remainder as the name for the building.”Taj Mahal, he
    claims, is a corrupt version of Tejo Mahalaya, or Lord Shiva’s Palace . Oak
    also says the love story of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan is a fairy tale created
    by court sycophants, blundering historians and sloppy archaeologists Not a
    single royal chronicle of Shah Jahan’s time corroborates the love story.

    Furthermore, Oak cites several documents suggesting the Taj Mahal predates
    Shah Jahan’s era, and was a temple dedicated to Shiva, worshipped by
    Rajputs of Agra city. For example, Prof. Marvin Miller of New York took a
    few samples from the riverside doorway of the Taj.

    Carbon dating tests revealed that the door was 300 years older than Shah Jahan.

    European traveler Johan Albert Mandelslo, who visited Agra in 1638 (only seven years after Mumtaz’s
    death), describes the life of the city in his memoirs. But he makes no
    reference to the Taj Mahal being built. The writings of Peter Mundy, an
    English visitor to Agra within a year of Mumtaz’s death, also suggest the
    Taj was a noteworthy building well before Shah Jahan’s time.

    Prof. Oak points out a number of design and architectural inconsistencies
    that support the belief of the Taj Mahal being a typical Hindu temple
    rather than a mausoleum. Many rooms in the Taj Mahal have remained sealed
    since Shah Jahan’s time and are still inaccessible to the public . Oak
    asserts they contain a headless statue of Lord Shiva and other objects
    commonly used for worship rituals in Hindu temples Fearing political
    backlash, Indira Gandhi’s government t ried to have Prof. Oak’s book
    withdrawn from the bookstores, and threatened the Indian publisher of the
    first edition dire consequences . There is only one way to discredit or
    validate Oak’s research.

    The current government should open the sealed rooms of the Taj Mahal under
    U.N. supervision, and let international experts investigate.
