Agra, March 21: The city of the Taj Mahal has got its own anthem and it is being played at road junctions, schools and colleges as a part of the ongoing Taj Mahotsav.
The 11-day Mahotsav will end March 26.
Titled ‘Mere Agra, oh mere Agra…’, the song was launched Sunday by Mayor Anjula Singh Mahaur. Its CDs are being distributed in schools to popularise it.
‘Mere Agra, oh mere Agra…’ has been penned by eminent poet Shiv Shankar Sharma and sung by pop singer Babul Supriyo. Adesh Srivastav has composed the music.
The song, which glorfies the monuments, the Yamuna ghats and the poetry of Ghalib and Mir, is an initiative by the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran to motivate people to work for the city’s growth and promotion.
