Tell us about the top five places you’ve always wanted to visit.

I’ve always wanted to visit Agra(India) to see the Taj Mahal. It has so much history, I’d love to visit the inside of the building to know everything about it.

The next place is the , “The hanging Gardens of Babylon.”

Some stories indicate the ‘Hanging Gardens’ towered hundreds of feet in the air. But the archaeological explorations indicate a modest height, but still impressive.

The city of Babylon under king  Nebuchadnezzar 11 was a wonder to ancient travelers. Greek Historian, Herodotus wrote in 450 BC, “in addition to its size Babylon surpasses in splendor any city in the known world in those times.

Number three is the Pyramids in Egypt.

The most famous pyramids are those found in Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.

Number four is “The Colosseum In Rome”

The Colosseum is situated east of the Roman forum.Its construction began in 72 AD under emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under his successor and heir Titus.

The fifth I’d love to visit is Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu is situated on a mountain ridge above the sacred valley.It was built by the Incas who abandoned it after a century.It was declared a Peruvian historical sanctuary in 1981 and in 1983 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2007 by an  internet worldwide poll, it was voted one of the New Wonders Of The World.

All of the images are from Wikipedia, which I copied, thank you.

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What  would your seven words be?

365 Writing Prompts: Bookworms

Grab the nearest book. Open it and go to the tenth word. Do a Google Image Search of the word. Write about what the Image brings to mind.

The tenth word is: FIRST


Google Image: A circle divided into ten parts, first part is shaded,the color is green.

The image green brings to mind a lot of things such as a green garden, green with envy, green grass, green apple, green bananas and so on.

Color is extremely important,it helps us to relate through sensation, we react towards a specific color. When someone is jealous we say he/she is,’green with envy,’ we don’t always associate green with envy, there are a lot of  green things that are soothing, such as green grass, the grass reminds us that nature is coming alive, when we see green apple we feel the sensation of something sour, whereas green banana tells us it’s not ripe yet, but then again some green bananas, called plantains can be cooked we don’t need yellow plantains.

When we think about traffic lights, green tells us to go,yellow means caution and red tells us to stop.These signs are necessary it gives us the kind of freedom we need in a world full of vehicles and people, it teaches us the need for safety by using different colors of lights.

Color shows celebration of life in a variety of ways, in some parts of the world people paint their faces using different colors. Statues and monuments are built and painted in vibrant colors. They are done that way to attract tourists who visit these places and help to improve the economy of that place.

History tells us colorful tales through archaeological sites, architecture, art and literature. The story of “Taj Mahal” in India is famous which tells us it was built in memory of Mumtaz Mahal , Emperor Shah Jahan’s wife.

Taj Mahal song in Bengali Translation and post by Ranu

song: Taj Mahal

Music and Lyrics  : Dilip Sarkar

Singer; Mrinal Chakrabarty

On the edge of the river Jumna

lies hundreds of dreams,

the mystery of the white stones

of mortals and immortals.

the pain of separation

and sick at heart.

Taj Mahal,Taj Mahal,

You are a picture

drawn with the paint brush

of a poet.

You have spread your wings

towards the path of heaven.

Today Mumtaz is not here,

Shah Jahan is not here.

Still love casts its ,

soft green shadow.

Taj Mahal,Taj Mahal,

you are an immortal

part of history.

You are standing firm

depicting the memory of

pain and love!
