Students campaign for Tajs inclusion in Worlds Seven Wonders list

As the Taj Mahal faces a tough competition from other architectural designs in the world to be included in the list of the seven wonders, school students in the city here have launched a campaign, urging people to vote for it.

Agra, May 30 : As the Taj Mahal faces a tough competition from other architectural designs in the world to be included in the list of the seven wonders, school students in the city here have launched a campaign, urging people to vote for it.

A group of students, carrying placards and singing motivated song 'Hum honge kam yaab' promoted the beauty and architectural design of Taj Mahal.

They urged people to vote for the monument so that it becomes one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

"The whole India should vote for Taj Mahal and make it number one," said Prayashi, a student.

Scores of tourists from across the globe come here every year to have a rare glimpse of the beautiful monument.

"I feel that it should be included among the seven wonders because the architecture is good, it has been well measured and constructed. So, it should be in the seven wonders," said Swati, a tourist from Jaipur.

As voting continues for the seven wonders, the Taj Mahal has been included in the list of 21 finalists by the New 7Wonders Foundation, a privately funded organisation.

The 21 finalists in this list also include Rome's Colosseum, Jordan's ancient city of Petra, Britain's Stonehenge, and the Great Wall of China. These were shortlisted on January 1 by a panel of experts chaired by the former head of UNESCO, Federico Mayor.

The new seven wonders will be selected on the basis of number of votes from across the globe. The names of the winning landmarks will be announced in a live broadcast on July 7, 2007 in Portugal.In the 17th century, Mughal Emperor Shahjahan built the Taj Mahal as a symbol of his enduring love for his wife Mumtaz.It stands on a marble platform in the city of Agra, 200 km south of Delhi, and is surrounded by ornamental gardens.
