One of the most visible effects of lockdown amidst coronavirus is the reduction of pollution levels around the world.
Science Times reported that last Friday, on April 3, residents of Jalandhar, Punjab have woken up to the magnificent view of the snow-capped Himalayan range.
With the reduced air pollution and smog, the Himalayan mountaintops have become visible to the naked eye. As the people saw this, photographers rushed to their rooftops to capture the impossible moment.
Different social media sites were filled with some delightful images as more and more residents laid eyes on the entire Himalayan ranges. They claimed that this incredible sight last took place almost 30 years ago.
Today morning people in Jalandhar woke up to a massive surprise. They could see what they had not seen for the last 30 years. Right in front of their eyes stood the majestic Dhauladhar mountain range of Himalayas from Himachal Pradesh.
