An unexpected spell of snowfall in Srinagar and Shimla on Monday brought cheer to the locals.
The residents hailed the bout of snowfall as a solution to crop, power and water problems.
Snowfall is good for us and the landlords. It is a solution to many problems like crop, power and water, said a resident of Srinagar.
We were facing illnesses like cough, running nose. Swine flu had also increased and this will be a solution to it, he added.
Locals, hoteliers and businessmen are also likely to benefit as the snowfall will boost tourism in the region.
