Arun Shrivastava has visited the Taj Mahal five times in the last 50 years. However he remembers his first visit in 1965 the most when he was awestruck by the monument and kept visiting it as often as he could.

"I remember the words of President Bill Clinton after visiting Taj, He said there are two types of people in the world -- the first are those those who have seen the Taj Mahal and the second are those who have not seen it.

And now I too have joined the first category," he writes as he shares this picture shot during one of his more recent visits.
