A group of students from Northwestern University are spending spring break in India on an educational exchange.

The students- and their professors- are creating a documentary called Water Pressures.

They are learning about water conservation techniques at the Jal Bhagirathi Foundation, which focuses on the Thar desert region of Rajasthan in India.

The students were there for World Water Day 2010 and participated in a parade Monday. That parade, led by a woman carrying an urn of water through the streets of Jodphur, promotes conservation.

The documentary will be released by World Water Day 2011.
