Parts of Taj Mahal are turning green again due to the presence of an insect species called The Chironomus Calligraphus in the dying Yamuna River.
Chhath puja devotees have to stand waist-deep amid thick and toxic froth while offering their prayers every year. This thick white foam floats over the Yamuna river. This has become a normal event. People wonder what is the main cause of this white foam over Yamuna river? Why does it happen only at a specific time of the year?
