The hotel that has been attacked recently by persons who believe that their way can be forced through violence.
The team was doing research for the project “The most beautiful people in the world” and actually one person was found close to the Taj Mahal Hotel.
Lakshmi Mukeshjado was claiming she was the most beautiful.
Her portrait was made right in front of the famous hotel.
Where a pool view room costs $ 960 (743 €) a night.
Next, we went with Lakshimi to an area called a slum.
A walk of 5 minutes from the Taj Mahal Hotel.
Makeshift houses where people live having an average annual income of $ 500 ( 387 € ).
One year of work not enough to rent a room for one night in the Taj Mahal Hotel.
As long as we live in a world where there are people who believe it is acceptable to rent a room in a hotel for $ 960 a night while nearby people try to survive on $ 1,36 a day, we can expect a reaction.
It makes people extreme and desperate and in the name of a political conviction, a philosophy or a religion they start shooting and bombing.
Of course it is unacceptable to use violence.
But this is physical violence we condemn.
There is also moral violence coming from the rich exploiting the poor.
The terrorist doesn’t mind who he or she kills.
This conscious elimination of consideration for fellow human beings is also executed by the rich tourist staying in a $ 960 a night hotel room while people nearby live on a Dollar a day.
The Countesses weren’t staying in the Taj Mahal Hotel.
They didn’t even go in there to eat or have a drink.
They are not violent.
