    There are power cuts in my city too allthough the situation is not as bad, we have two hours of power cut daily mostly in the afternoons and most of us use invertors powered by batteries but in the suburbs and small tows and villages I have heard they have 10 to 12 hours of power cuts. Just wondering how do houses manage and what about commercial establishments, schools and hospitals?

    Sir, thank you for your reply, and I admit that in marking your statement on positive attitude in bold red was a mistake, and indeed a positive attitude is a great thing. And thank you for pointing it out.

    However, just taking it as it comes will only embolden the authorities who are not keen on providing the people with the necessities that they are entitled to. What perplexes me is how those whose businesses run on electricity (even schools - it would be such a disgrace to force the kids to learn in classrooms where the ACs/fans lie worthless) are not uniting and joining hands in protests.

    Please do not mind my saying it, but I say it as I see it - People are very punctual in gathering in thousands for any rally where someone is busy shouting Death to America or Jihad on India - Something that serves absolutely no purposes. But they never do the same when their kids are perspiring from heat and their machines are sitting idle producing nothing.

    Actually, I too am speaking from experience, as my past too was very similar to what you are facing there. But then, I saw the villagers joining hands with the urban population to protest against the power cuts - they did not care where the govt. was supposed to get the power, but they showed clearly that the government won't be in power next time if it continued.

    Soon, the power cuts reduced to 2-6 hours per week, and mostly on weekends.

    I may be wrong here, but this is what I experienced that in a democracy, people have not one but many ways to show the authorities where the actual power lies. Unless they do that, things don't change, and if they do, they do for worse.

    Your title is wrong, it should have be "No Electricity since morning (Welcome DEMOCRACY)"

    Now that is a perfect title.

    Damn that sucks. Being from Rajasthan, our loadshedding is quite high compared to the other states and provinces. However from where I am, we have a maximum of two hours of power cuts throughout the day (usually around the afternoon) and that too when everybody is leaving from work.
