    The Mughal Empire that ruled over India for centuries had come up with some of the most cruel leaders even. Amongst them was one, Shahjahan who had killed a woman's husband and then married her for her beauty. She died after giving birth to her 16th daughter. Shahjahan, in her memory had built a monument, the one we recognise as Taj Mahal. Beautifully carved monument symbolises love, people say. Shahjahan had chopped of the hands of all the workers who had contributed in the development of the beautiful monument. He did not only chop their hands, but stole their arts from their fate forever. And only an artist knows what his arts means to him.
