Miracles: – The physical world is governed by very defined laws. The gravity pulls down everything. An object needs to exert force to attain a certain velocity. The laws of physics strictly govern the physical world and no body in normal circumstance is able to violate these laws. Since times immemorial human kind has been amused by miracles. The miracles are in fact nothing but gross violation of these physical laws (explained very well by science). Lord Jesus walked on water and even raised a dead man. Those miracles are till date enumerated by the clergy.
The east has always amused the west. The yogis from the east are understood to have miraculous magical powers. The snake charmers and the rope trick were very famous in the west in last century. This blog enumerates best miracles of India which even science is unable to explain.

It is a well known part that water and humidity is biggest enemy of any sort of structure but Taj Mahal irespite of being on the banks of river Yamuna survives since long rather humidity and water is an essential requirement for the specially engineered foundation of the Taj Mahal. The civil engineers have a prescribed load bearing level which a wall can take, the dome of the Taj Mahal exerts many times the pressure prescribed for a safe building. No iron has been used in the construction of the Taj Mahal yet the building stands solid as a rock. It is a fabled myth that when the foundation laying process of the Taj Mahal was started the faults crept in and the king prayed before the sufi saints Abdullah Bukhari and Jalaal Bukhari who were four brothers. These sufis consoled and promised the king that they themselves will take care of the evil forces and the building sure will be built. The graves of these Bukhari brothers. Encircle the Taj mahal and it’s a local fable that these sufi saints still guard the monument of love.
