We see romantic love every day, in every movie, in every song, in every novel. And yet, keep in mind that love is not just about having a partner. The best facet of the human being is reflected in each of the actions that we carry out for the good of the people around us that we love so much. But, we all like to feel loved in a romantic way like in great love stories. What better day than Valentine's to pamper your other half with something special?
Unlike the love stories of princesses and knights, real life is usually harsher, although there are still things that are literally built from love. For example, the Taj Mahal, the most famous monument in India and one of the seven wonders of the world, was built to honor the great love that the Hindu prince Shah Jahan felt for his wife when he died. Legend has it that Arjumand became the prince's favorite wife — let us not be alarmed, at that time in India, polygamy was considered perfectly normal — and earned the title of Mumtaz Mahal, "chosen of the palace". The poor woman died giving birth to the marriage's fourteenth child due to complications during childbirth. Shah Jahan, devastated by the loss, built one of the most impressive moments in the world, the Taj Mahal. Romantic, right?
