Power Cuts

Update: 11:58 p.m. IST
A 13.5-hour power cut at home. Getting through a MSEB phone number is more difficult than trying for KBC 2. At least some people do get a reply from KBC 2. The sun may rise in the west, but no one can get through a MSEB telephone number on the first, tenth, or nth attempt; let alone waiting for someone to answer the phone.
I suppose MSEB's schedule for the day would have been an 8-hour scheduled power cut for load shedding and then a 5.5-hour power cut for maintenance after the half-an-hour downpour that lashed the city this evening.

03:56 p.m. IST
MSEB resorts to power cuts again. Power cuts have re-started in Pune after a 2-month gap. Last Sunday there was a 2-hour power cut, and now, as usual, it seems like there's going to be an 8-hour load shedding schedule set for Thursdays. There's no electricity in office from 10:30 in the morning. A/cs off with fans and computers on.
