Chapter 1: Waking up in History
The love of the great Moghul emperor Shah Jahan for his wife withstands court intrigue, dynastic betrayal, war and death itself when he builds her the greatest memorial tomb of all time: the Taj Mahal.
"God separates two lovers, least did he thought it will become the talk of the town."
"Taj Mahal an ivory white marble mausoleum on the south bank of Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. "
"Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passion of an Emperor's love brought in living stones."
"The Taj Mahal was commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1631, to be built in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal who died on 17 June that year. "
"Uff!! Why did she die, his husband loved her so much, he built such a wonderful tomb for her. My name is also Mumtaz I also want a husband like her".-Said Mumtaz.
"Whatever I should go to sleep or I'll be late for tomorrow's morning classes".
By turning light off Mumtaz went to sleep.
"Hey! Arjumand Banu wake up! Today we had a plan go out for selling silk and you are sleeping".
Hearing a shrill and loud voice while sleeping Mumtaz suddenly wake up. Still half asleep see sat up and when she saw the girl in traditional dress and jewelery was standing in front.
Mumtaz surprisingly asked
"Umm, who are you?"
"Stop making excuses! You just want to sleep more and asking me who I am. "
By this time Mumtaz took a glance around to find out from where this girl came and was dumbfounded. She was not at her house instead she was at a traditional mughal mansion just like the ones she studied about in history.
"Where am I? " She asked shockingly.
The girl who was standing in front of her giggled and said "Now the next question you'll ask is- Who you are? Did you hit your head while sleeping and became dumb."
"This is your house, I am Rukaiya Begum you friend and you are Arjumand Banu Begum daughter of a wealthy Persian noble. Is it enough? Now get up and quickly get dressed or we'll be late for market. "
Now Mumtaz was confused that she actually travel through time and became Arjumand Banu Begum who later will be known as Mumtaz Mahal.
Slowly her mind became clear she got up from her bed. Two maids helped her to take bath and dress up.
While dressing up in mind Mumtaz was thinking about, what she had read in history and what are the events which will happen with her.
