Another Day without Electricity

Tuesday, May 11, 2010



All hell breaks loose when there is no electricity for an entire day in Summer. People get easily annoyed and shout/ fight over petty things. I do. Well, the unfriendly HEAT gets into the head, that is all. We, this year, are experiencing a lot of power-cuts and it is awful. There is this one advantage of having our classes canceled. The teachers oblige happily. But without electricity, what are we to do!

We guys play cricket in the scorching heat and we are the only ones in college doing so, presently. Ah, we have the entire playground to ourselves and yes, we are a little too crazy to actually play in that dreadful weather. With only a few days left in the last semester, what do you expect? After playing for a couple of hours, after the amusing fights we get into while playing, after having exhausted ourselves completely and getting all soaked in sweat, we have a long walk to the MUC(Madras University Canteen) only to hydrate ourselves with chilled water, chilled flavoured  soda/ pet bottles of pepsi/ miranda/ 7Up, a grape or an orange candy, whatsoever is available. Ah, BLISSFUL! It is not really easy to put it in words, that very moment when the chilled whatever rushes through your throat. It will be apt to say that it feels like drinking directly from the fountain of youth. It feels like being reincarnated! *laughs*

I have drifted again. Back to the topic! I had planned on watching a movie, downloading a few songs, reading a short story last friday. And when I reached home(after playing cricket), there wasn't any electricity- from five in the evening till ten in the night. Everything flopped. So, there are power-cuts. "They are saving something for the future." Errr.. This beats me.

You have a bar of chocolate with you. And I tell you it is that last one on Earth. What do you do? Eat it ? Preserve it? Eat half of it and then preserve it for the posterity? A dumb analogy, right. But power-cuts in the middle of a summer are even more dumber. Well, it is just that I had a terrible, terrible evening. If only they cut power in winter instead of summer!

I had to sit without electricity for a while even in the exam hall today!

PS
NO MORE POWER-CUTS in summer!!! PLEASE!!!
