Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

The Taj Lookalike

In the south of India and in a hurry ? Want to see the Taj but have no time to get to it. Want something like the Taj experience and that Diana moment on the bench - Look no further.

Baba ka Maqbara is the place for you - it is a replica of the Taj in the Deccan. Built by Aurangzeb's son on the outskirts of the town of Aurangabad as a tribute to his mum Begum Rabia Durani it is to all intents and purposes a Taj Lookalike but without the crowds.


  1. Well, who would have guessed that! Very cool!

  2. Marina, if you have a very strong stomach, read up about the history of Aurangzeb.

    Aurangzeb is the Mughal version of Vlad the Impaler of Romania.


  3. Yes totally aware of what an awful person he was - this is his son however building it to the memory of his mum. Thanks for leaving a comment. MM
