    Got the backup today but yesterday our work suffered a lot...Had to shut down the office yesterday and now I have asked my staff to come work on Saturday to compensate the work loss. And it indeed is one of the biggest power failures I have ever seen.

    2 Worse days for Northern India. And power supply was given to Delhi from Bhutan and western grid to run emergency services. Still lots of Rajneeti to hapen on it.

    My clients trust me and none of them complained. Just send them a link to some news website and it should be good :)

    saw this on the news today in the uk, what truck me as odd is they said
    the cause of the loss of power was because some people where using
    to much electricity.
    so if everyone cuts down from 3 > 2 cups of a coffee a day ya good to go :D

    It's not about 2-3 cups of coffee. Electricity production is low and usage is high. Some states are overdrawing from the northern grid. They have a cap of certain usage and they are using beyond that which is causing too much load and getting tripped.

    Maharashtra is fine. I am sure they are saving these off grid issues for the summer. This issue affects north indians mostly, not all indians, as cause is different here.

    Yeah it is hard time, but we have backup and power restored after some time.
    Big cities are okay, but the condition in rural area in unpredictable. I know some palaces where power cut is regularly 10-15 hours on daily basis.
