Letter Published in The National UAE on 1 March 18 The Taj is India's pride and should be preserved with care
I refer to your report Taj Mahal's dome leaves cleaners with a quandary (February 27): what an interesting read. India's world famous monument, the Taj Mahal, requires routine maintenance to preserve its appearance. It receives millions of visitors each year. This famous mausoleum is India's pride and should be preserved and maintained to the highest standard, even though there is some risk involved, particularly when cleaning the dome of this centuries-old structure. Though debates rage, there can be no compromise with either the preservation or the safety of the workers. I sincerely hope that the government will take careful measures to clean our treasured monument.
