Plinky—you might as well ask what is more amazing the apple or the zucchini, it does have an answer, at the same time it is not comparable.
One being man made the other being nature’s creation.
I am like John McCain I believe in evolution, but I also believe,when I hike the Grand Canyon and see it at sunset that the hand of God is there also.
The wonders of Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols of speech nor by speech itself. The resources of the graphic art are taxed beyond their powers in attempting to portray its features. Language and illustration combined must fail says John Wesley Powell I guess lot of them must agree with him, I cannot for I have not seen the Grand Canyon.
Rabindranath Tagore the poet Laurette of india says Taj is the tear on the face of tertenity and more often termed as a symbol of eternal love. American novelist Bayard Taylor asked”did yo ever build castle in the air? Here is one brought down to the earth and fixed for the wonder of ages.”
“Properly speaking the sultan’s memory is more pertuated by this building than that of his favourite for everyone who saw it would involuntarily ask who created it?”is Ida Pfeiffer’s comment, definitely I for one agree with her.
But coming back to plinky’s pesky query, amazing is standing on top of Grand Caynon and drinking the Taj Mahal tea! At the end of the day the most important monuments we can leave for our children is the earth. We should give it in the spirit of love.
