On the subject of Mughal Gardens...

The Times of India reports that the World Monuments Fund, a New-York based heritage protection body, has selected one of India's oldest Mughal gardens, the Aam Khas Nagh in Sirhind, Punjab to be put on its 2012 World Monuments Watch List.

Four months after the announcement, the bad news is that the Punjab Government has as yet done nothing to seek the funds for the upkeep and restoration of the crumbling Mughal garden.
