ताज महल यानी तेजो महालय

Hidden, Shocking and Amazing Truth on Taj Mahal To read about Prof. P.N. Oa, visit - Article on Taj Mahal - Visit - BBC says about Taj Mahal---Hidden Truth - Never say it is a Tomb

No one has ever challenged it except Prof. P. N. Oak, who believes the whole world has been duped.
In his book Taj Mahal: The True Story, Oak says the
Taj Mahal is not Queen Mumtaz's tomb but an ancient Hindu temple palace of
Lord Shiva (then known as Tejo Mahalaya ) . In the course of his research Oak discovered that the Shiva temple palace was usurped by Shah Jahan from
then Maharaja of Jaipur, Jai Singh. In his own court chronicle, Badshahnama, Shah Jahan admits that an exceptionally beautiful grand mansion in Agra
was taken from Jai Singh for Mumtaz's burial . The ex-Maharaja of Jaipur still retains in his secret collection two orders from Shah Jahan for surrendering the Taj building. Using captured temples and mansions, as a
burial place for dead courtiers and royalty was a common practice among Muslim rulers.

For example, Humayun,Akbar, Etmud-ud-Daula and Safdarjung are all buried in such mansions. Oak's inquiries began with the name of Taj Mahal. He says
the term " Mahal " has never been used for a building in any Muslim countries from Afghanisthan to Algeria . "The unusual explanation that the term Taj Mahal derives from Mumtaz Mahal was illogical in atleast two respects.

Firstly, her name was never Mumtaz Mahal but Mumtaz-ul-Zamani," he writes. Secondly, one cannot omit the first three letters 'Mum' from a woman's name to derive the remainder as the name for the building."Taj Mahal, he
claims, is a corrupt version of Tejo Mahalaya, or Lord Shiva's Palace . Oak also says the love story of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan is a fairy tale created by court sycophants, blundering historians and sloppy archaeologists Not a single royal chronicle of Shah Jahan's time corroborates the love story.

Furthermore, Oak cites several documents suggesting the Taj Mahal predates Shah Jahan's era, and was a temple dedicated to Shiva, worshipped by Rajputs of Agra city. For example, Prof. Marvin Miller of New York took a
few samples from the riverside doorway of the Taj. Carbon dating tests revealed that the door was 300 years older than Shah Jahan. European traveler Johan
Albert Mandelslo, who visited Agra in 1638 (only seven years after Mumtaz's death), describes the life of the city in his memoirs. But he makes no reference to the Taj Mahal being built. The writings of Peter Mundy, an
English visitor to Agra within a year of Mumtaz's death, also suggest the Taj was a noteworthy building well before Shah Jahan's time.

Prof. Oak points out a number of design and architectural inconsistencies that support the belief of the Taj Mahal being a typical Hindu temple rather than a mausoleum. Many rooms in the Taj ! Mahal have remained sealed since Shah Jahan's time and are still inaccessible to the public . Oak asserts they contain a headless statue of Lord Shiva and other objects commonly used for worship rituals in Hindu temples Fearing political backlash, Indira Gandhi's government tried to have Prof. Oak's book withdrawn from the bookstores, and threatened the Indian publisher of the
first edition dire consequences . There is only one way to discredit or validate Oak's research.

The current government should open the sealed rooms of the Taj Mahal under U.N. supervision, and let international experts investigate.

'Troop cut depends on ground situation'

A.K. Antony
Car Nicobar: Stating it was his dream that soldiers should return to the barracks in Jammu and Kashmir, Defence Minister A.K Antony said here Sunday that this depended on India's neighbours ceasing support to terror groups in the country. "It is my dream that the soldiers can go back to the barracks (in Kashmir). It is the dream of the government, but it depends on the situation on the ground," Antony told reporters here. "Terrorists are getting support from across the border. That is a fact (and unless this ceased, there could be no withdrawal of troops)," Antony, who was here to inspect the post-tsunami rehabilitation measures being undertaken in this southern island of the Andaman and Nicobar chain, added. Pressed on the issue, he said: "At the appropriate time, we will review the situation. Whether (this will happen) tomorrow I can't say. There have been several rounds of discussions. Everything depends on the emerging security scenario." Pointing out that the government had sent the army to combat terrorism when it erupted in Kashmir in 1989, Antony said: "The threat is still there. We don't want to deploy the armed forces (in Kashmir), but what do we do? We have to protect ourselves against terrorism." "Their (the security forces') working conditions are extremely difficult. We don't want this situation to continue," he added. Pressed on a timetable for the troops withdrawal, Antony said this depended on the recommendations of the security forces. "The armed forces and other security forces must tell us (when the time is ripe for withdrawing troops)," he maintained. Asked whether he expected a solution to the Kashmir crisis as long as a military government ruled in Pakistan, Antony replied: "Mere statements are not necessary. Action is needed." The issue of troop withdrawal from Jammu and Kashmir has been raised by the People's Democratic Party, the state's major ruling coalition partner, which has threatened to withdraw from the alliance if its demand was not acceded to. It is also demanding withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act from the state. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh invited PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to Delhi for talks to defuse the crisis. The two held two rounds of talks this week.

എന്റെ ഹറ്ദയം

ഇരുളിന്‍ മഹാ നിദ്രയില്‍‍ നിന്നുണറ്ത്തി നീ
നിറമുള്ള ജീവിത പീലി തന്നൂ...
ഏന്‍ ചിറകിന്‍ ആകാശവും നീ തന്നു
നിന്‍ ആത്മ ശിഖരത്തിലൊരു കൂടു തന്നു
ആത്മ ശിഖരത്തിലൊരു കൂടു തന്നു

ഒരു കുഞ്ഞു പൂവിലും കുളിറ്‍ കാറ്റിലും
നിന്നെ നീയായ്‌ മണക്കുന്നതെങ്ങു വെറെ
ജീവനുരുകുംബോളൊരു തുള്ളി ഉറയാതെ നീ തന്നെ നിറയുന്ന പുഴയെങ്ങു വേറെ
കനവിന്റെ ഇതളായി നിന്നെപ്പരതി നീ വിരിയിച്ചൊരാകാശമെങ്ങു വേറെ..?

ഒരു കുഞ്ഞു രാപ്പാടി കരയുബോഴും
നേരത്തോരരുവി തന്‍ താരാട്ടു തളരുബോഴും
കനിവിലൊരു കല്ലു കനി മധുരമാകുബോഴും കാലമിടരുബോഴും
നിന്റെ ഹ്രുദയത്തില്‍ ഞനെന്റെ ഹ്ര്ദയം കൊരുത്തിരിക്കുന്നു
നിന്നിലഭയം തിരഞ്ഞു പൊകുന്നു

അടരുവാന്‍‍ വയ്യ....!!
അടരുവാന്‍ വയ്യ നിന്‍ ഹ്രുദയത്തില്‍ നിന്നെനിക്കേതു സ്വറ്‍ഗം വിളിച്ചാലും
ഊരുകി നിന്നാത്മാവിന്‍ ആഴങ്ങലില്‍ വീണു പൊലിയുബ്ബോഴെന്റെ സ്വര്‍ഗം
നിന്നിലടിയുന്നതേ ... നിത്യ സത്യം!!!
