  Red Fort
by Manyana

The Red Fort is associated historically with Taj Mahal. It was the palace of the father of Taj Mahal builder.
When that prince decided to build another Taj Mahal in black marble, the father subjected him to prison in the Red Fort. He accused him of wasting money.
So he put him in a place at the top of the Red Fort, where he can see Taj Mahal while feeling disable to build another one. When he got too old to see, the father brought him a big diamon, so he would see the picture of Taj Mahal reflected on it.
