    Don’t let there be no Street Light 

    Vasai people, (I actually mean non-Mumbai people) I think each you could easily recall the day when there was no light at your place the whole day. I can, because it was just yesterday!! Morning time there was no current and I thought it might be due to the load shedding; I waited, waited till noon…but no use! Sunil called up and as you could guess, he was really pissed off! He was even ready to come out gather crowd and stage a violent protest!! I had to cool him down.

    Alright, now these people tell that there is shortage of electricity, they advertise, they broadcast and appeal to the masses to make a difference! They tell save electricity, save our future, save for the next generation. But, but these fools don’t practice what they preach.

    Here’s why:

    Getting Wasted


    I shot the above pic with my N73 at about noon! I first thought, it might be due to some maintenance work, but I had to give these people a call and report about it after about an hour and half as I got back from church!

    They seemed concerned as I reported them, and thank God, there was an immediate action! (though it took them an hour)

    I just wonder if such things happen in my place, what would be the condition of other areas? They might be so lazy or irresponsible that they might keep the street lamps burning throughout the day…and when they are actually needed at night-time, they will be put off due to load-shedding!!

    Then there even is such a waste of energy in the city area, where no creature is worried about saving energy, there are such small rooms with FOUR air conditioners!

    Tell me:

    Have you ever experienced power cut-off?

    How did you deal with it? Did you just keep waiting or you went out with friends?

    How is the power supplier in your area? Reliable or not?

    Load Shedding…real-time! 

    The other day I was just doing some work on my machine, it was important, but then I had to throw it away. Because my machine is not backed up by any big power supply and it has a mere 15Min of UPS support I had to, had to shut it down.

    In case of an interrupt, I always save the work and shut down the machine as soon as possible cause the battery is small and would soon exhaust damaging the components.

    Light's Gone 😦

    Light’s Gone! has been the tag line since years. Just now I had to say it again, but you guessed it right!

    People got used to this situation, which gradually grew to a big present problem, as they could do very little. Some grouped and sat for ‘dharna’, others took out processions, some even agitated with the management of the power supply board. There were many agitating through violence-breaking the government offices.

    The power overload is dropped by straight away cutting off the power supply. The problem existed years before I was even born and I have seen it getting worse year after year. As I started to give it a thought I always asked myself: why does Bombay doesn’t have this problem? Soon I knew that Bombay is the nation’s pride and it will not be able to stand up and face the world without power! It’s true. But whenever I travel in this city my mind gets fucked up witnessing the extreme wastage of power. I don’t really know what mentality many of these people have.

    A Cartoon

    I attended a class in the suburb. You will see the room; it was such an undersized place, and it had a total of FOUR AC’s for it! And some of the professor’s would not proceed with lectures until all of them were on full swing!! What the hell. This is just a tiny absurd example, I am sure you may have seen many in your day-to-day life.

    A quick google search and you may find a lot about this problem; this is what the state government has to explain.

    So let’s hope for a bright future and let’s spread the word: SAVE ENERGY! Bye, I have got some important work to be done.
