And, it is definitely a treat for the eyes, especially when you get to see the majestic mountain ranges after so many years, all thanks to the clear skies and drop in pollution levels. Surreal!

I used to have this lovely view of Kanchanjunga each morning from our quarters at Binaguri Cantt when my father was posted there in 1980-1983

That is a beautiful sight !— Nandini C (@nandinic11) April 30, 2020
I remember the blue ‘wall of hills’. Going up from NJP towards Darjeeling, that would be clearly visible as soon as we left Siliguri behind. And add to the feeling that yes, we are going up into the mountains.
This just goes on to show how nature is reviving itself while humans are isolating. It’s time for us to reflect on our actions, it’s time to treat nature and wildlife in better ways. Right?
