Meet The Retired Postmaster Who Built A Taj Mahal For His Beloved Wife

A true love story that will move you to tears.

Faizul Hasan Qadri loved his wife dearly. When she once expressed regret that no one would remember them after their deaths, he made her a vow: that he would build her a tomb that people would speak of for generations. He kept that promise by building a replica of the Taj Mahal in his backyard, in which he buried her after she passed away. On the day he passes on, he wishes to be buried next to her, so that they can be together forever.

Love in India celebrates the triumph of love against the odds... Love in all of its shapes, forms, genders, expressions, and peculiarities. Legal love, and illegal love. Timeless love and lusty love.
