Prayer behind Taj Mahal

Though once sacred river of Jamuna, behind Agra's Taj Mahal is now almost a polluted river, people from across the country come to this place to pay their respect for the mother river during morning. This is all for their rich cultural heritage which we, the Indian feel proud of. The shot depicts a mother has come to pay her thanks to mother Goddess after fulfillment of her "secret wish for a birth of baby during Chhat celebration".
