HISTORY MEME : (1/7) pairings - Salim & Anarkali
In 1615 , Mughal Prince Salim (later Emperor Jahangir) , son of the great King Akbar , fell in love with dancing girl Nadira. She was nicknamed ‘Anarkali’ (blossoming flower. Blossoming pomegranate) for her exceptional beauty. Salim fell in love as soon as he saw her. But, the emperor could not accept the fact that his son wanted to make a low-born dancer empress. He started pressurizing Anarkali and devised all sorts of tactics to make her fall in the eyes of the young, love-smitten prince. When Salim came to know of this, he declared a war against his own father but the mighty emperor’s gigantic army proved too much for the young prince to handle. He was defeated and sentenced to death. This was when Anarkali intervened and renounced her love to save her beloved. She was entombed alive in a brick wall, right in front of her lover’s eyes. Some people, however, say that she did not die. The tomb was constructed on the opening of a secret tunnel unknown to Salim. It is said she escaped through that tunnel and fled the place, never to return again.(+)
