Flashback 10-15 years
Summer hols were always associated with load shedding. 8 – 10 hrs, sometimes even more and all unscheduled at granny’s place in a remote village in UP. We’d be surprised if we had any power supply at all. Inverters did’nt exist. Generators reserved for the night and afternoon siestas. The situation hasn’t changed much now.
Cut to the present at home, Mysore.
Supposed Rainy season. No Rains, No hydro power … unscheduled load shedding up to 8 hours, inverters crash…long forgotten gas lamps have been unearthed, generator sales; irrespective of the fuel prices have increased. KRS is dry…. bloody heart breaking, when you have had too many fun picnics there… its depressing to visit it now. Only tourists go there now, locals don’t even visit that place any more.
If it wasn’t for the weather, there would be no difference between the present and the past.
