I had been to Taj Mahal before during a college trip and I had experienced its magnificence, so I knew what the fuss was all about. Ranjit, being all into architecture and always watching and reading documentaries about monuments, probably knew a lot more than I did but he hadn't experienced its beauty.
Roads in Madhya Pradesh are like hills and valleys; I mean you can find holes in the middle of the road where you can plant trees or even bury people because I think you can probably find some which is 6 feet deep. Agra is about ¼ way from Delhi, which was kind of a rest stop for us, it’s about 125kms from Gwalior (4hrs if you drive like me) and about 215kms from Delhi (7hrs if you drive like me, I drive slow, I think probably an old man on wheelchair can race me) once in Uttar Pradesh, your back can finally rest in peace for the roads are much better. It’s a straight road all the way to Delhi and no chances of getting lost unless you’re blind.
