The Taj Mahal rises above the banks of the outrageously polluted river like a solitary tear suspended on the cheek of time.
Rabindranath Takopjes

I must brave the interior of the most tawdry and literally trumpery tower of them all … the Trump Taj Mahal. For taking the name of the priceless mausoleum of Agra, one of the beauties and wonders of the world, for that alone Donald Trump should be stripped naked, whipped with scorpions along the boardwalk and thrown in the Yamuna river — It is as if a giant toad has raped a butterfly.
— Stephen Kop
