INDIA’s PRIDE – TAJ MAHAL


Hey Guys !

Day before Yesterday, I was watching News at CNN-IBN around 10:00 PM or so, they was a debate going on why we all not been able to spread the news that people MUST vote for bring TAJ in 7 Wonders of the World list.

To my surprise only 2% of the Indian Population knows about something like this being done :(.

I immediately voted 'TAJ' by sending sms to 4567.

DEAR FRIENDS, Let's join hands again and pass on this information to maximum people around.

There are two ways to VOTE:
1) Online Voting be visiting New7wonders site
2) Through sms send TAJ to 4567

We are not realizing, millions of people earn their bread and butter only from TAJ MAHAL. I'm really disappointed the way our Government is promoting this, time is running out, results will be out on 7th July.

Let's wrack our brains and spread this message to all. Ideas are more the welcome

TAJ, is INDIA PRIDE and MUST be part of 7 WONDERS OF THE WORLD.

Hey your blog is pretty interesting. Blogrolled you without your consent :-)

10:23 AM  

I had first voted for it almost one year back (or was it 10 months back?), and by now I must have voted for it at least 50 times.

According to a Star News feature which was aired some time back, Taj Mahal was said to be in the front ranks. So chill and keep on spreading the message. Remember 2% turns into 20 million.

Jai Hind!!!

Happy Child day

Children love, they laugh, they care.
Children, bless them, they know how to share.
Children try hard to be what you want,
Sometimes they can't and they start
To cry, that's when a hug or a
Kiss is the tool, no not a spanking
That's not the rule.
Children do good and children do bad,
Children are happy and children are sad.
Children must walk before they
Can run, all of us wake to the
Bright morning sun.
So cherish the children these
Treasures from God, for without
Them the Earth would be nothing
But water and sod.

Wish people stop the pollution and preserve our heritage.

6:27 AM  

yes, i have voted too ! Even though i don't like taj mahal (the hands of people who constructed it were cruelly cut of )

8:30 AM  

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Have a nice day.

thnx for doing such nice work !
love

1:04 PM  

It is a pity indeed. Being the second largest country in terms of population, we still have so few votes!
A few days back, Mridula of Travel Tales, posted a list of world heritage sites ... and it was a poor sight there too .... being the seventh largest in terms of land area, and one of the oldest civilizations, we were no. 7 there in terms of number of sites included in the list.
Do we, as a nation, have no pride in our heritage? Perhaps not. How else will you explain ugly graffitti and state of neglect all over our monuments?

In this particular matter, I have done my bit - voted for the Taj!

9:22 PM  

voted.
TC.

6:01 AM  

Yeah! I've already voted for Taj.

But I still don't understand why the number of people SMSing shud b a criteria for deciding wonders of the world. If everybody is gonna vote for national pride some great wonders wud miss out. I wud've suggested an expert panel but nobody can be an expert on 'wonders'!

2:09 PM  

Hey, are there any set criterias for defining the seven wonders or its totally dependent on peoples vote..............

My vote with TAJ

Smiles :)

10:25 PM  

great shruti!

8:14 AM  

oh i didn't even know abt that!
thanks... :)
Take care

6:02 PM  

the proper term is "7 Modern wonders of the world" the true 7 wonders are the ancient wonders .. why are they called wonders? Because the construction of them were actually wondrous at that time.

1:53 PM  

Hey shruti how are u ?

4:40 AM  

I do agree. I voted. Thanks:-)

6:48 PM  

Stumbled upon your blog.
This is a good documentary on how people were made to believe TAJ as the greatest wonder in India when they were far more superior ones down South.

It's an eyeopener:
