One of India’s best-known love stories involves the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and his wife, whose name we won’t reveal so that you can fill it into 11-Across, in today’s Crossword. The couple was married for 19 years and had 14 children before she died during childbirth.
Legend has it that Shah Jahan went into secluded mourning for a year after her death and when he finally emerged from his room, his hair had turned white, his back was bent and he appeared gaunt. With the help of his eldest daughter, who helped him rise above his grief, he began planning the design and construction of a mausoleum and garden for his beloved wife – what would eventually become the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world.
The love story of American bank robbers Bonnie and her husband (16-Across), on the other hand, was far more action packed. The criminal couple travelled across the US with their gang during the Great Depression, robbing banks and even murdering people. They evaded the police for over three years before they were caught.
As the quintessential gunman and his moll, their story still captures the imagination, as is evident in hundreds of movies filmed and books written about them. Theirs was a story of love on the run, which ended in their gruesome deaths during a shoot-out with the police.
