Next in the series on #excessdeaths that we are tracking State and city-wise across the country: Himachal Pradesh. "Excess deaths" here were just about twice the official COVID19 tally between April 2020 and May 2021:… (1/n)
#Himachal had an interesting pattern. While deaths peaked in May 2021, the excess deaths multiple over the actual COVID19 death count was higher in 2020 (in the 1st wave: 2.8) than in 2021 (1.6). (2/n)
All said, #Himachal seems to be tracking #COVID19 deaths better than other North Indian States for whom full data on death registrations has been available so far. (3/n)

At our @Airbnb_in home #VayuKutir, we have now introduced a delightful new experience - A ride on the the #Kangra Valley, #Himachal toy train from Kopar Lahar (around 20-km from from Vayu Kutir) to #Baijnath and back. This is about the best time in the year for the experience.
Kopar Lahar is a quaint British era railway station on a gently sloping lush green hillside. A nearby clear water stream with a small dam and a lot of birds make it an excellent picnic spot all by itself. There are no crowds even when there is a train on the platform.
The heritage look of the Kopar Lahar station, is evident. The clock on the station, as on all stations on the line, is imported from the UK for authenticity. The 2hr 30 min / 60 km journey to Baijnth costs a princely Rs 15/- Yes, even the ticket cost is heritage!
