The Taj Mahal
Some one asked me to write a post that would promote the whole Taj voting thing. So here goes;
I think Taj is an ugly structure. The first (and only) time I saw it, I was completely unimpressed. It may be good for a cemetery but for a monument it is ugly, dirty and boring. It reminded me of the S.V.Sekhar Vaal Paiyan dialog "ponatha veetulaiye vechirukeengala" (is the dead body still in the house?). I promised to myself that I would never set my eyes on anything as ugly and disgusting as the Taj. Unfortunately I saw Arundati Roy's photo on paper. But never mind.
I wish it is not selected for any sort of wonder list. Everybody builds a cemetery. Why wonder? I hope the whole Internet voting things turns out to be a fake. I wish for some sort of a snub/nose-cut for all those software engineers who are using their precious bandwidth to send forward mails on this. The companies that employ such idiots and still make a profit must be on the list. It is certainly a wonder. I wish the 'mera bharat mahaan' pride that filled all these people on the Taj voting issue turns into phlegm. I will request someone to break 500 coconuts in front of Siddi Vinayak Temple if this happens. I'll also ask Vairamuthu to pen a song "Hype'unna Hyp'u Velaikennai Hype'u".
