::Let there be light::

Now that the monster power shut down has rigged the northern and eastern parts of India, you never know when it would hit the southern states. So what to do when the power’s out? Clueless huh!!
How about living a life the “90’s style”?

Write a diary. Oh don’t worry, it’s as simple as typing a Word document, you just need a Pen and a Paper. Go on scribble. See if you can still spell “Obedient” correctly :P

Practice calligraphy – the dying art of beautiful handwriting. Is your n any different from m , w and v ?

For a change cook food. I mean food and not Maggie, although on second thoughts Maggie should be declared as the national food of India.

Talk. This task requires the use of vocal chords. Just use your voice to say the things you type and the facial muscles would take over the function of emoticons. Pretty easy huh.

Go for a stroll in a garden. It’s same as roaming around the Cityville or Farmville. No difference I promise.

Want some music? Remember the massive tape recorder. Massive compared to the mini ipods you got. They would never betray you. Get a pair of batteries, dig your dad’s collection of music cassettes and enjoy the everlasting love songs of Mr India and Phool aur Kaante.

And you thought you would die without the dammed electricity.

{Psss let me publish this before the battery in my laptop gives away}

So what would you do if power failure hits your city?


  1. I would hang around with friends and eat good food :)

    Have come here after ages...good to be reading you again:)

  2. I would go out and do things that i have been wanting to do , what we used to do when we were kids , run amock :) play games meet friends and chilllll

    it might be a blessing if electricity goes away for a week or two :)


  3. Hello
    I would like to use one of your poems for a teaching material about shape poems. I would really appreciate if you could send me your e-mail adress, so we can discuss the terms. I have also tried to add you as a friend in google talk, but I have not used Google Talk before, so I am not sure how it works.
    My email adress is majah@clioonline.dk

    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best regards
    Maja Hansen

  4. Good pointers!!
    No electricity would take me away from my laptop for a while and I would get back to some serious reading!! :D

  5. Hmmm u got me thinking ;) Taking a stroll, music and reading would be my choices :) And talking, most def. if I get some nice gang.

  6. I would simply sleep, Dream. And at times I become a Jesus when there is no power or TV ! But the really best thing you could do if you have a bike and 17 BHP is to go for a ride @ 120 Kmph (minimum) have wind in the hair and fall down somewhere ! :) Hey nice write up btw. Long time since I read you (my fault)


Thank you for your presence!! Don't forget to leave behind a comment. Love, Feedback, Brickbats!! Everything's welcome :)
