To the delight of the tourists as well as orchardists of Himachal, the queen of hills, Shimla as well as renowned tourist destination, Manali received first snowfall of the reason. With the first snow fall of the season coming well in time, the tourism industry is expected to revive in the coming days. On the other hand, the apple growers are also getting a ray of hope that climate will be good for the better apple crop next year seeds of which have already started sprouting with the first snow fall.

Whereas the Manali and adjoining areas got good deal of snowfalls, Shimla received few flakes, but the nearby areas like Kufri, Naldehra, Theog received couple of inch snowfall which took the area back to the fresh hopes and expectations of rich apple crop. The snow fall has ceased for the time being but there are hopes for a good winter season this year. Perhaps, hoping against hope is what the life is all about. Cheers to all!
