29th May 2016, Chandigarh.
Thousands of people from Chandigarh are going uphill to Kasauli or Shimla. There’s a huge rush at Yamuna Expressway – the toll plaza that marks the entry to the awesome Chandigarh – Shimla Highway. Well, this is not something new, but it seems special as all of a sudden, the rush on the highway has increased and people can be seen going uphill from Chandiagrh in large numbers. Cars, Bikes with CH number have marked a complete line of vehicles on Chandigarh Shimla highway since morning.
Here’s why everyone seems to be going uphill from Chandigarh.
Reason 1 = Yesterday’s Rain.
It rained heavily yesterday. The temperature has come down by 16 degrees. The rain has been a major factor to push people towards Kasauli & Shimla as the weather over there has become even more pleasant as it is here in Chandigarh.
Reason 2 = Today’s Cool Breeze.
Cool breeze is blowing since morning. Northern sectors are the first ones to fee it and when you get a clear view of he mountains right from the city roads, who doesn’t want to go there. This reason is more specific to youngsters who take this opportunity of cool weather to beat the heat and head to the mountains.
Reason 3 = It’s a Sunday.
Although majority of people living in Chandigarh are studying or working, but Sunday is a holiday for everyone. When you mix Sunday with a prefect weather, everyone in the city has just one destination – Uphill.
Reason 4 = 10th & 12th class results.
Students in Chandigarh, Panchkula & Mohali have done well in their 10th & 12th exams. While 10th class result was declared yesterday, what would be a better option to have a family outing and celebrate the result and of course the best option to go for a day out is Kasauli or Shimla.
Reason 5 = Summer Vacations have Begun .
Majority of schools in Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali have begun with their summer vacations. Many have taken this opportunity to take their kids uphill in the very beginning.
So, what is your reason to go for an uphill drive? Oh, you had not planned it?
Oh, I guess I made your plan. If not today, make sure you plan it for any coming day when the weather becomes good.
