Golden India: Taj Mahal

Ganesh Saili (Author)
Synopsis Born out of an Emperor's obsession, the magnificent Taj stands today as one of the wonders of the world. Completely shattered by the sudden loss of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the fifth Moghul Emperor, Shah Jahan, took to building a memorial which would not be easily erased from the memory of mankind. Named after the empress Mumtaz Mahal, the 'chosen one of the palace,' the Taj took fourteen years to build, using the labour of twenty thousand workers, and cost five million rupees. Encapsulating the Moghul age, this book presents the love story of an emperor and the tales and legends behind the building of the Taj Mahal. The accounts are enhanced by some superb photographs of the monument and its surroundings.

About the author

Ganesh Saili

Ganesh has been known to cook everything from Banana Fritters to Mutton Chops.  Over a period of 30 years, he has been collecting Mussoorie and Landour memorabilia - old photographs, recipes, menu cards, coasters, place mats, bar stools and bar flies!  Much of this collection went into the making of Mussoorie & Landour - Days of Wine and Roses, which is today a collector's item.  Ganesh has also done some picture books which Ruskin uses on stormy nights to keep his door from blowing open.  When it isn't windy, he appreciates the pictures!  In revenge, Ganesh makes a castle with Ruskin's 80-odd published titles and waits for the wind to knock it down!  Presently, he is working on an out-of-focus pictorial biography of his author friend.
