The haze thats surrounds this wonder of the world, has Weathered down its beauty.
The Taj is battling the side effects of intense air pollution. The marble has yellowed in colour over the past two decades.
The visitors can barely appreciate Taj’s beauty from a distance… even a short distance such as its own gate.

The smog has ruined a breathtaking vision.
Weathered – My interpretation is about the pollution in India, which is destroying our national heritage. Not so much the elements themselves, but the people of my country.
Agra is the 27th most polluted city in the world according to one survey. New Delhi is the 11th most polluted city in the world according to the same survey. There are 9 Indian cities amongst the top 20 most polluted cities in the world, according to the same survey.
Is it too late to save ourselves and our national heritage?
