These days citizen of Patna wakes up to foggy morning . Though last week was quite clear and people were relaxing and enjoying the chill winter . But, suddenly as chilly north-western winds from the Himalayas begin sweeping the Northern Plains it has not only reduced the temperature but also marked the season with very dense fog, which dramatically reduces visibility and makes days colder by cutting off sunlight.
