Mayawati is wise in
making a monument to her greatness.
The demonstration of her greatness will be the monument itself: In
no other evidence is needed.
We love the Taj Mahal.
The Taj sent Bengali Tagore into rapture (“a teardrop on the cheek of time”). Gujarati
Gandhi, less sentimental, saw it immediately for what it was: a monument to
cruelty. He thought of the peasants taxed to pay for its marble, the villagers
who lost their land to its gardens.
What was Mumtaz
Mahal’s achievement? She bred. She produced 14
children, including Aurangzeb, in 19 years of marriage. What were Shah

difficult to understand why it should not be allowed to be finished.
On 10 July, the Supreme Court said: “If a democratically elected
government decides to do something without misappropriating public
money, there is little courts can do.” This seemed like a sensible
thing to say.
Building monuments is
economic activity, unlike corruption. The money will go to quarries, sculptors,
labourers, cement plants, dealers and transporters.
The argument is that a monument isn’t particularly functional.
But then neither is Mumbai’s Rs1,600 crore Rajiv Gandhi Setu, whose
design forces rush hour drivers to detour 1.2km in the opposite direction.
Mayawati will go down
as a revered figure in history for Indians.
She is guaranteed to
