It was an anti-climax of sorts as French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Saturday visited Taj Mahal without his girlfriend Carla Bruni, contrary to intense speculation that the former supermodel would keep her date with the 17th century monument of love.
But Sarkozy kept the hopes alive of his returning with Bruni as he said in his farewell message at the architectural marvel -- "See you soon again".
The French leader, who came to India on Friday on a two-day visit, took time off his tightly-packed schedule to visit the Taj amid heightened media interest, particularly in view of the guessing game over whether Bruni would accompany him.
"Unforgettable," wrote the 52-year-old in the visitor's book in French about the Mughal monument built by Shahjahan for his beloved wife Noor Jah.
