Taj Mahal - A Symbol of Love

One of the 8th Wonders of the World,
A monument of Pride for every Indian,
And every architectures dream....
The Taj Mahal is indeed one of the greatest monuments existing today.
I was barely 6 years old when I witnessed this beauty in person. Though I wasn't mature enough to appreciate everything about it, my trip to the Taj Mahal will always be etched in my memory.

All these things aside, I really don't agree with it being a symbol of love.
I do appreciate and understand the emotions behind the maker of this gigantic structure, and I am sure he loved his wife Mumtaz Mahal a lot.
But I cannot grasp the logic behind doing something for your love after they are dead.
Why not do things for the person you love when they are alive and around you?
People who say they can't express love really amuse me. I mean you don't have to be a poet or a singer or have some super power to do it.
All you need to do is make the person feel appreciated, valued and respected.
Surprise your mom by buying her a saree without any reason or occasion, fix your Dad's car over the weekend, do your wife's laundry when she is out, or go swimming with your kids over the weekend.
All these are definitely bigger symbols of love for me than building the Taj Mahal.
Do I make sense? If not, lets move on to the pictures.

I recently came across this brand called Perfect Cutt and I was amazed by their Insta feed.
beautiful, artistic and classy hand made clutches that looked too good to be true.
But when I was sent two of their pieces for styling on the blog, believe me I was more surprised. Because pics do not do justice to the actual beauty of these clutches.

After a very long time, I came across a clutch that was so beautifully made. Quality fabric, expert craftsmanship and perfect finish. These clutches were pure love.

In this post, I have styled their Taj Mahal clutch and I really cant believe this beauty costs merely Rs.1350, which is hardly $20. Can you believe it? Nether can I!
And just so that you know, Perfect Cutt ships internationally too.
For more updates, you can follow them on FB, Twitter and Instagram.

Also, I want to wish all So-Saree Readers a very Happy Gudi Padwa!
