Rajnish Sharma, a resident of Jalandhar, said that when he went to the rooftop, he was left astonished as the range was peeking from behind the clouds. He then called his family to witness this amazing beauty of nature.
Same is the case with another resident, Baldev Singh. He explained it as a miracle of nature and added that it’s time for everyone to think about how they are disturbing the ecological balance of nature through pollution.
