After animals and birds have had their share of fun, it is time for Kanchenjunga, the third-highest peak in the world. The town of Siliguri, West Bengal, which is 100 km away from the peak, woke up to a breathtaking view of the Kanchenjunga, a view which has not been seen for ages.
After Ashish Mundhra tweeted a picture of the mountain flaunting its beautiful snow-capped peaks, it became a sensation, with many others sharing similar pictures in various social media platforms.

According to NASA, North India is suffering an extreme decline in air pollution because of the significant reduction in carbon emission, with automobiles off the roads and factories on halt.
A few days back, we were entertained by another similar news of how the Dhauladhar range in Himachal Pradesh was visible from Jalandhar, after 30 long years. And of the Ganga River cleansing itself magically, almost making itself fit to be consumed.
Such rare happenings are perhaps persuading us to reflect on our selfish deeds. While we wait for the pandemic to clear the path, let us ponder on how we have been trespassing the existence of other creatures, let us think of new ways to thrive well without exploiting and mishandling other living forms while rejoicing over the sights that we do not see every day.
