Power cuts are bitter experiences happened in life. All of a sudden the power goes out at night unprepared , it has become horrible to search out the alternative source of light at home instantly. There may be generator or inverter or torch lights or wax candles to light the home.


It is no doubt a fact that power cuts are rare in city life ,but frequent in rural life now a days. If the power goes out suddenly at night in the summer season , It throws out tantrum and puzzles the household members how to finish the household chores in the evening if the alternative arrangement of emergency light are not made quickly.. Generally the provisions for emergency light are not made in normal times when there is no scope of power cuts. But if such a situation develops when there goes out of power for a considerable length of time. due to snapping of high voltage electrical wires in the farflung areas or the bursting of transformer etc. It takes a longer time to get it repaired. The heads of the families face the challenge of making arrangement for emergency alternative source of power in the evening . It is really easy to procure the alternative arrangement of light, but the life becomes hell without fan or air conditioner. The middle class people suffers a lot for whole night without electricity. If the supply system is not restored at night or in the morning , it becomes a big problem for the supply of drinking water for discharging the normal household chores It is really difficult to.Attend schools,colleges and offices and other duties. Power cuts create acute disturbances in normal work .Everybody heaves a sigh of relief when the power lines are restored within quickest possible tiime.

Utility of electricity in normal life.

Electricity has become so important in daily life that ,without it, we can never think of life. The residents of high rise multi-storied buildings may face difficulties in their movement and supply of drinking water if the alternative backup plan of power exists in the building in normal times. The industries make provisions for mini captive power plant or generators for running the offices and the factories. The municipal corporations arrange for alternative power supply to ensure the supply of drinking water to the residents of municipal corporation areas. The state government and the central government make the alternative provisions of power to run the hospitals in times of emergency of power cuts . The Railway authorities have also made a separate arrangement for running the local trains in case of power failures. The banking authorities and the financial institutions have also made separate arrangement to run their normal transactions in case of emergency. In times of crisis there should be alternative arrangement for provisions of lights in every household to tide over the untoward situations of life.


Now a days electricity has become part and parcel of life. Electricity is being used in every sphere of life. In fact electricity manages every household chores of life. Uses of electricity lessen the physical labor of human beings. Emergency preparedness should be made in case of power failures for all the times to come.
