People from Jalandhar woke up today to a spectacular view of a mountain range not seen in 30 years from Himachal Pradesh. The range is about 200kms away and was visible after 3 decades due to a drop in pollution. The usual smog hanging in the air cleared causing the blue sky to appear and visibility increased substantially.
The picture was posted by Susanta on Twitter:
“This Dhauladhar mountain range of Himachal , seen after 30 years, from Jalandhar(Punjab) after pollution drops to the lowest level in 30 years. This is approx. 200 km away straight,” wrote a Twitter user and shared an image. It was also shared by IFS officer Sushant Nanda. “What nature was…And what we had done to it,” Nanda wrote.
