Monsoon is one of the most cherished seasons for many. While greenery thrives in the season, picturesque landscapes are sights to behold. Mother Nature’s miracles are beautiful and breathtaking, and they have an effortless ability to fascinate. Water rushing from the waterfall was depicted in a viral video. Interestingly enough, water was evaporating and forming clouds rather than falling to the ground.

A clip capturing one such mind-blowing sight from Maharashtra’s Naneghat has gone viral on social media. The video has left netizens puzzled about the phenomenon of water sprawling upwards instead of falling down.
Naneghat is a mountain pass between the Konkan coast and the ancient town of Junnar in the Deccan plateau in the Western Ghats.
The clip shared by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda shows water being sprayed from a hilltop. The lush green hill and hovering clouds rendered a mesmerizing visual treat.
“When the magnitude of wind speed is equal & opposite to the force of gravity. The waterfall is at its best during that stage in Naneghat of the western ghats range. The beauty of Monsoons,” Nanda captioned the clip.
Giving a scientific explanation for water being forced upwards, Science girl, a Twitter handle said huge winds are behind it. “Newton’s first law of motion, an object remains in the same state of motion unless acted upon by a force. Huge winds act on this water’s natural propensity to follow gravity. The magnitude of the two forces is equal, and their directions are opposite,” a Science girl tweeted.
