Dhauladhar range in Himachal Pradesh is now visible to folks in Jalandhar; pollution lowest in 30 years
While humans continue to sit indoors during the lockdown period, nature continues to restore itself. The sky is clear, there is a noticeable change in air quality and the internet is flooded with videos of fauna returning to their habitats. Amidst all these pleasant changes that are helping people stay positive and sane in these tough times, is a new picture straight from Jalandhar, Punjab.
Amidst the incessant dark and doomed news pieces being circulated related to COVID-19 deaths and active cases around the world, including India, it is also important to focus on the positive side of the stories too. In a pleasant turn of events, an elderly Kerala couple have recovered from COVID-19. They had contracted this deadly virus from their children and grandson, who had returned from Italy and the rest of the family too, have now recovered from this disease.
In light of recent events that have occurred almost all over India, Spicejet, the privately run airline, has offered to lend a helping hand to all migrant workers who are stuck in Delhi and Mumbai. Since a major chunk of the migrant labour in these two big cities comes from Uttar Pradesh & Bihar, Spicejet is offering to run flights, to help the migrants' cause.
