SAN/001 "Jeb Ghadi" Item Description : This antique Gandhian time piece has been fashioned complete with an ornate minute hand and an hour hand. The clock opens up into a weighing scale with the Taj Mahal nestling on one arm (a symbol of love made by the emperor Shahjahan for Begam Mumtaz Mahal at Agra) and the Red Fort ensconced on the other (a symbol of dignity and freedom at Delhi) . Likewise the Taj, lifts to reveal the mazhara (tomb) of Mumtaz Mahal and the mazhara in turn, lifts to reveal the delicately chiselled form of the Empress in her eternal rest. All these diverse aspects, the timepiece, the weighing scale, the Taj Mahal and the grave of Mumtaz Mahal, to whom the white marble mausoleum had been dedicated by a doting husband, Emperor Shahjahan, way back in 17th century, have been integrated in a natural manner to achieve a symmetry that is at once a tribute to the skill, concentration and dedication of its creator.
