When fiction takes a factual turn

Anarkali the most fictitious courtesan born supposedly  as Nadira Begum is found in history books.

While at school we had this lesson about this lady who had an illicit relationship with the then crown prince Jehangir. And as a punishment she was buried alive building a wall around here brick by brick until she was fully enclosed

I have seen this movie with tears in my eyes little knowing that this was fiction. To top it all there is a real tomb  in her memory!!!!

Wonder what else is there in history, fiction taking a factual turn.

Written by grace

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family
