Jalandhar Sees Snow-Capped Himachal Mountains The First Time Ever
COVID-19 outbreak has changed our lives drastically, but the global environment, too. While humans are staying inside their homes, because of the lockdowns, wildlife is taking over the streets and the air is clear.
Proofs of this changed scenario have been going viral on the Internet. And something similar took place in the city of Jalandhar, Punjab.
Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan took to Twitter to share a picture from Jalandhar. The people in the city witnessed Himachal Pradesh's Dhauladhar range for the first time ever.
He tweeted the image with the caption, "When people of #Jalandhar saw #Dhauladhar range the first time ever. Dhualdhar’s mountain ranges lie at a distance of 213 km from Jalandhar. This is how pollution made us blind.” According to Kaswan, this was the first time that the city saw the ranges, which lie at a distance of 213 km from the city.
Cricketer Harbhajan Singh also tweeted a picture of the view from his house.
After Kaswan shared the tweet, it quickly went viral and managed to garner around 13.9 k likes and many retweets. Users took to the comments section to show their excitement and thank the lockdown for this incredible view. That's amazing!
India is currently under the biggest lockdown with around 130 crore people asked to stay home in view of the COVID-19 outbreak.
