Do you all know Where the First Wax Museum was established?
I had no idea about this until I visited Kanyakumari and got to know that India’s the First Wax Museum was established in Kanyakumari,interesting isn’t it,being just a small tourist and pilgrimage site in the southernmost tip of India..I was really amazed to know this and was really excited as I had never been to a Wax Museum.
Though this Museum is not as big as Madame Tussauds Museum in London but good enough for a first time visitor like me…
And some of the Personalities wax statue I saw there..The administration is trying best to get many more Wax Statues of different Personalities and I wish them all luck,Maybe next time when I am there I can see more of them.
Now Please allow me to showcase them.. 🙂
My First Encounter was:Charlie Chaplin-The Great Comedian as the world knows him.
“To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!”
My Next Encounter was with:Amitabh Bachchan-Big B,the Shahenshah of Bollywood.
“Rishte mein to hum tumhare baap lagte hain, naam hai Shahenshah”
From the Movie Shahenshah
Next I met was:ShahRukh Khan-Most famously know as the King Khan and the King of Romance of Bollywood.
“Kabhi Kabhi Kuch Jeetne Ke Liye Kuch Haar Na Padta Hai, Aur Haar Ke Jeetne Wale Ko Baazigar Kehte Hain” From the Movie Baazigar
Look whom I met Next:The King of Pop-Michael Jackson
“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.”
Now all the way from China-I met-The Kungfu King-Jackie Chan
“Do not let circumstances control you. You change your circumstances.”
The Next I met was our very own-Superstar of South-Rajnikanth
Next I met was Pope Benedict XVI:
“The fact that the Lord can work and act even with insufficient means consoles me, and above all I entrust myself to your prayers.”
Pope Benedict XVI
Now the Time to meet our very own–The PM of India-Dr.Manmohan Singh:
“My top most priority is to deal with India’s massive social and economic problems, so that chronic poverty, ignorance and disease can be conquered in a reasonably short period of time.”–And Our PM Sir is doing that in great way,Right Indians!!!
Ok lets hurry to the Next personality,don’t waste much time on our PM.. 😛
So next I met was-The Great Indian Cartoonist Shankar:Kesava Shankara Pillai
The last and the Final Personality I met was the great of all time–The Great Theoretical Physicist-Albert Einstein:

Wax museums can be so cool,albeit a bit creepy sometimes, Harsha. But, I really enjoyed this! I always get a kick out of seeing American figures from another country’s artistic viewpoint! 🙂
