Yamuna is dying, and so is Taj...

#Agra #TajMahal
As I sat by myself at the end of an exhausting day, I could finally see the world that surrounded the #TajMahal. When the Mu'adhin in a nearby mosque made a call for prayers, I too closed my eyes praying that this was all just a nightmare. It wasn’t.
You’ve seen me a traveller who shares beautiful images and fun stories of the places that I visit, so why I am sharing this today? Well, I indeed debated the need to share this, and the more I thought about it, the more I was convinced it was the right thing to do.
