Electricity in the air.
2005-02-25 oochappan

Electricity in the air.


Almost impossible in Madurai to take a shot without electricity wiring, everywhere in the most chaotic way, wires ... wires ... and wires in the air.

Electricity is provided by the government.
Without warning on the most unexpected moments people here have to cope with power cuts, companies have to wait patiently and in the mean work is shut down too.

And then suddenly it works again,
Then, a man from the company comes by with a big smile on his face expecting some encouragement, pocket money, for his accurate interventions to make the power supply back in order sometimes after two hours or more. These collections happen often as a kind of ritual. Question of who is pulling the strings here.

Maybe not a postcard but on top of actualities.
