Is this possible it with opengl?Kindly guide me.

In principle YES.
There is more than 1 Possible solution. Depends on your requirements.
From ... Draw a high tessellated Quad with the Texture ... to ... manipulating the Z-Value of you screen pixels in Shader.

Thank you for your reply.

Can you provide me link to download OpenGl for windows along with manual/references? Because I searched a lot but I could not able to find Opengl.
On this site, there are too many products so I am confused which product I should select for my project.

Thank you in advance.
