Quadri decided to make a replica of Taj Mahal to embody his love for his wife. He spent all his savings on the construction of the mini Taj Mahal. He sold a piece of land, his wife’s jewellery, and a few more savings to meet the cost of constructing the structure.

He said:

“Initially, I sold a piece of land for Rs 6 lakh and my wife’s gold and silver jewellery for Rs 1.5 lakh and got the ‘makbara‘ (mausoleum) constructed with the help of a local mason named Asgar. A total of Rs 11 lakh was spent, but now I have to get marble studded on the monument and also to build a lush green park around it, both of which is likely to cost me another Rs 6-7 lakh,”

Three years after he started building the mini Taj, the construction came to a halt as there was no money left. He did not want to ask for any money from anyone to complete the most treasured gift for his late wife.

He added:

“Asgar prepared the dome and constructed the four minars around the central building, which is a little more than 27-feet in height. The structure is built on my own land and I have also tried to plant some trees around it and have a small water body at the back side of the building. However, work has mostly been held up due to finances as marble costs are high. A number of people have offered me money that I have refused to accept so far. This is my personal endeavour for my late wife and embodies my love for her. So I should do this on my own.”

When asked from where the idea of making a replica of Taj Mahal came, this is what he said:

“The doctors initially treated my wife for an ear ailment and could not find any traces of throat cancer. Later I took her to Aligarh Medical College where the doctors told me that she was suffering from throat cancer and had no strength to bear the effects of chemotherapy. We moved in to a plot of agricultural land outside the village. I got a new house constructed for her. Once we were thinking that will anyone remember us after we died! From that, the idea of constructing the monument came.”

TajMahal-3

He summed up his story with these beautiful lines:

“I have told my brother to bury me here by the side of my wife. I have deposited the fees with the Wakf board also. Everything that comes has to go away some day. My wife is dead. I will also die someday. The monument too might not stand forever. I just wish to see it complete before I die.”

salman khan main hoon hero tera

Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab’s son, Sooraj Pancholi and Sunil Shetty’s daughter, Athiya Shetty are debuting in the Nikhil Advani directed movie, Hero, which is set to be released on September 11, 2015. The Pancholi offspring has already gained some infamy thanks to the Jiah Khan suicide controversy. But, you can decide later if you already hate him or not due to his involvement with this case; because this parody of the Main Hoon Hero Tera song is nothing short of comedy gold.

Salman Khan “sang” the (heavily auto-tuned) Main Hoon Hero Tera song, which has created quite a stir among the audience. Clearly, Sallu bhai is taking his role as Sooraj and Athiya’s ‘Godfather’ quite seriously, by going out of his way to launch these two star kids. And, the Shudh Desi Gaane team has paid a wonderfully funny tribute to all the lessons Salman is giving out to these newcomers to make it big in the industry. We will get to see how much effect the ‘virgin Godfather’ actually has on their Bollywood careers soon enough.
