Great article about why it's important to at least try to pronounce names correctly. Having grown up with "difficult" names, it was tough always hearing, "oh that's hard, do you have a nickname?". Or you start to be known by your physical attributes only - "the Indian girl with the dot and pigtails." Instant self-esteem killer. Now having kids and realizing how much thought goes into choosing your child's name, the importance of this comes rushing back. Your name is special. Your parents (bio or non) put thought and meaning into it. Let's try to pronounce our names correctly- it may be hard, but we can do it! 💪🏽this is also why we keep our traditional food names. These go back for generations and evoke many fond memories. We honestly don't think the food would taste the same if we changed the name :)
Taj Mahal , "the epitome of love" , I can't get enough this monument of immeasurable beauty. The beauty of its magnificent monument is such that it is beyond the scope of words. It is a MUST to see before you die. The thought that come into my mind while admiring the Taj Mahal of Agra is not just it's phenomenal beauty , but the immense love which was the reason behind its construction. It was constructed by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal , with whom he fell in love at the first sight . Taj Mahal is the epitome of love and Romance . The purity of the white marble ( self cleaning ) , the exquisite ornamentation , precious gemstones used and it's picturesque location , all makes a visit that gain a place the most sought - after tours in the world. We woke up very early to bit the crowd and went straight to have a picture before wandered around to this magnificent building. I DRESSED UP in an Indian attire and people thought that I was getting married and never thought that it's a wedding attire for a groom what I wore but I dressed up intentionally just to have a nice photo . It is the LOVE behind this outstanding monument that has given life to this monument - THE TRUE SYMBOL OF LOVE. #tajmahal#exploreindia#ig#travelindia#seetheworld#travelworld#travel#travelshots#bucketlist#travelbucketlist#incredibleindia#colourfulindia#explore#globetrotting#globetrotter#photography#instagram#instaphoto#instatravel#love#monument#truelove#traveltheworld#wanderlust#india
