Sirohi, December 26
The desert state of Rajasthan is experiencing a record dip in mercury this year with the hill station of Mount Abu experiencing snowfall and the city of Churu, the gateway to the Thar, recording zero degree Celsius.
People on the high rocky Aravalli plateau of Mount Abu near the Gujarat border woke up to snow-covered grounds, and glass sheets on vehicles.
Northern India is in the grip of severe cold with many parts experiencing cold wave conditions. Fog leading to poor visibility has continued to disrupt road, train, and air traffic.
