Agra (IANS) An hour-long film, “Yamuna ka Dard” (The Pain of the Yamuna), was released here Wednesday in a bid to highlight the pollution in the river and the likely damage it could cause to the Taj Mahal.

Produced by students of journalism and mass communication of the Central Hindi Institute, the film was released by Surendra Sharma, president of the Braj Mandal Heritage Conservation Society.

“The Yamuna is dying a slow, painful death. It is not only the victim of pollutants discharged by upstream cities and industries, but also of criminal negligence and intriguing silence from pollution control bodies,” he said.

Poonam Chauhan, who scripted the film, told IANS: “This is not exactly a documentary. We have a proper story line, inspired from mythology. We have interlaced the script with lots of interviews with both common people and experts.”
