Well, if you are a tired city dweller, caught in the midst of the chaos of the city, you would probably love to be in a place ….far away in the palms of nature……and now after the Corona Lockdown…..a place which has rested, recharged, rejuvenated itself …..more tranquil, peaceful, and restored to the Glorious “Blue Hills” it was many a centuries back.
Ooty doesn’t need too much of an introduction. A small city set amidst the Blue Hills like it is called, where the clouds kiss the tall eucalyptus trees and a city surrounded by endless dense vegetation and wild life reserves, cascading waterfalls with ever flowing brooks and the silence is enchanting, only to be made lyrical by the chirping of birds, the dance of peacocks, and the cool temperatures which makes the place truly a magical piece of creation.
Impact of Corona Lockdown in Ooty
Ooty, like the rest of the world, has had its due share of a ‘Break from the routine’.
When we watch the
1. Deserted Ooty roads with flower bed
2. Calm Ooty Lake
3. Brooks and Streams with crystal clear water
4. Bisons and herd of deer around the hills of Ooty
5. Elephants invading the human territories
6. Birds and butterflies ever so happy
7. Improved Air Quality Index
It is all together a new hill station – A nature restored age old Ooty – Much needed lock down not only for Ooty but for all hill stations to rejuvenate.
Chill winds are roaming the streets which were once punctuated by the ever swarming tourists who come to this place hoping to get cured from the pandemic called Stress.
The restoration of its beauty is still in progress.
“Corona Lockdown became good for Ooty! From this experience, the environmental law may be amended in the future to impose lockdown period in all hill stations for a short time at regular intervals like the fishing barrier period to keep the nature intact and without affecting the lively hood of the residents there. It is not going to be far away.”
If anyone want to have the feel of century old Ooty, they should visit it immediately after the Corona lock down is over and before it is polluted again.
The folks of Ooty, who are so used to have tourists from all over invading their private space, have really got an opportunity to distance themselves from the routine and are basking in the ever so peaceful environment which is truly a gift in this small city blanketed by peaceful clouds, which are ever so closer, the serenity to be surrounded by hills and valleys with lush greenery.
