Internet is full of pictures showing abundance of flora and fauna during lockdown period.

It is extremely astounding to see mountains from a distance of over 200 km. An officer of Indian Forest Service (IFS) Praveen Kaswan shared a picture from Jalandhar on his Twitter account. He could see the Dhauladhar range of Himalayan mountains from Jalandhar. And it was first time that he viewed this range so clear from a distant city in Punjab.

The officer tweeted the image with an attractive caption that reads “When people of #jalandhar saw #Dhauladhar range first time ever”. Dhauladhar lies in Himachal Pradesh approximately 213 km from Jalandhar. But people weren’t able to see the mountains due to pollution. According to Kaswan that was the first time that the mountains were visible from Jalandhar.

Cricketer Harbhajan Singh was the first to react to the tweet of Kaswan that went viral with 1.3k likes and many retweets. Many users took to comments section to pour their excitements and some even thanked the lockdown for the scenic view.
