After over three weeks, the monsoon revived in Himachal Pradesh with heavy rains lashing many parts of the hill state on Friday.
Normal life was disrupted in many places as traffic moved at a snail's pace due to heavy rainfall and fog.
Light showers broke the dry spell in the state on Thursday.
Farmers have heaved a sigh of relief and are hoping that the rainfall will continue for the next few days to put an end to the drought-like conditions in the state that had started to affect the crucial apple crop.
