Timeless love in Agra
Moving through life, through cities, through emotions, through technology, through relationships: humans have been celebrated for being a most adaptable species for our ability to move through change. It’s a continuous swim against an unending tide.
I think that people treasure images and monuments of great beauty and history because they are the most timeless things around us. A monument’s lifespan exceeds that of a person who is bound to time and bound to change. It represents a constancy that doesn’t exist in the rest of our understanding of the world we live in.
The Taj Mahal is one of those monuments. While every visitor (including yours truly) comes with a specific lens, emotional history, and hope and desire for the future, the backdrop of the Taj and the intention that inspired it remains timeless, unchanging and beautiful.
