It was extremely difficult to remember the names of the kings, their eras, and what they did during their reign. And in case these kings happened to be born before the era of Christ then remembering their dates of birth and death was even more confusing. 🙂 Emperor Ashok, for instance was born in 304 BC and died in 232 BC.

For young couples, visiting Taj Mahal is like visiting the temple of love.

I became aware of this song accidentally while I was searching the details of another song of this movie. My search led me to this article on songs of Mayur Pankh (1954) by Richard S.

A little more digging up reveals that I may have inadvertently stumbled upon a movie that is a trivia buff’s delight.

In olden days, love songs would often have words like “Chaand”, “raat” etc in their lyrics. Another interesting variation was where the hero would sing a sing in a moonlit night with tajmahal in the background.
