Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace)

Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace) at Night.
Hawa Mahal, Jaipur  was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, and designed by Lal Chand Usta in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god. Its unique five-storey exterior is also similar to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas that are decorated with complex lattice work. The original intention of the lattice was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen, since they had to follow strict "purdah" (face cover).

Why this picture is here?

Friends I am not a writer but would like to share the most shocking experience of my life.

7 yrs ago I saw her first glimpse back when I was a teacher and she was my student. Sometimes in life you come across such people who are hard to forget. She is one such person. I had never seen a girl with more energy, excitement in her eyes as she would conquer the whole world, unaware of her own ravishing exquisite beauty. She was perfect naïve 18 yrs old girl.
