Juliet thought that she knew the answer. Visiting Tom’s garage provided her with all she needed. Starting with the wheels from his bike, she dismantled almost everything that he had loved. Then taking items from the disorder around her, she set to work. With the tools of her trade she changed them into sculptures.
Her love for him would live on. His death so young had cut deep into her soul, only time would tell if she could survive. But she would show the world that like Shah Jahan she had lost love. Regret came later.
Shah Jahan had the Taj Mahal built to the memory of his wife.
Rabindranath Tagore would describe the Taj Mahal as “a tear drop on the cheek of time”.
