The lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 might have forced us to stay at home, but is giving nature a chance to rejuvenate after decades. Cities are witnessing clean air and lesser traffic.
The effect of clean air was also visible in Jalandhar. Here, residents could see snow-clad Himalayan ranges.
After a curfew of 11 days, people in Jalandhar woke up to this enchanting view.
When people of #Jalandhar saw #Dhauladhar range first time ever. Dhualdhar’s mountain ranges lies at a distance of 213 kms from Jalandhar. This is how pollution made us blind !! PC Net. pic.twitter.com/Q0qNmaybJw— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) April 3, 2020
It is being believed that the mountain ranges visible in the pictures could be the Dhauladhar range, which lies at a distance of 213 km from Jalandhar.
Residents tried to capture this once in a lifetime view from the roofs of their homes.

This pic taken from Jalandhr by Pardeep Arora from his balcony shows Dhauladhar Range which is in kangra district of HP. Reminds of old saying on ‘clear day you can see forever’.

Snow-capped mountains could also be seen from nearby areas like Pathankot and Hoshiarpur.
The world seems to be so different with all these mesmerising views.
