The residents of Jalandhar were left "amazed" by the sight of the Dhauladhar mountain range, a part of the Himalayan range in Himachal Pradesh. Sharing the pictures of the "first-ever view" from Jalandhar, its residents thanked the ongoing lockdown for cleaning the air to make it possible.
India is in lockdown until April 15 and the city of Punjab saw the most drastic effect of air pollution reduction. The picturesque snow-clad mountain range was visible for the first time in Jalandhar on Friday, over a week since the lockdown was imposed on the midnight of March 24.
Many of the Jalandhar residents didn't miss the chance to capture the beauty from their rooftops. Soon, social media was flooded with the majestic views of Dhauladhar range. Have a look at some of the posts:
Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh also shared the picture of Dhauladhar range from his home rooftop. "Never seen Dhauladar range from my home rooftop in Jalandhar..never could imagine that’s possible..clear indication of the impact the pollution has done by us to Mother Earth Earth globe europe-africa.. this is the view," he captioned the picture on Twitter.
Though the lockdown has brought the country to a standstill with underprivileged being hit the most, the environment has got a chance to cleanse itself. The outcomes of which are clearly visible. One of the major reasons for clean air is a drastic fall in pollution level as there are fewer vehicles on roads and no industrial work.
