Load shedding or power-cut has become a common affair of our daily life these days.
Electricity plays a very important role in regulating modern life. Any interruption in the supply of this vital item of energy. Therefore, puts the whole system out of gear and paralyses our life.
Load shedding occurs when generation of power is less than the demand and it creates problems of far reaching consequences in the economic and social development of the country. Mills and factories become idle, industrial production declines, workers are retrenched. Social order suffers a great damage. students suffer in their study, straining their eyes in dim candle lights.
The housewife gropes in the darkness in the kitchen. the shops have to close down. Men in the cinema halls spend hours in stuffy suffocation for failure of the supply of current. People return home after a day's hard work only to enter a dark den. The entire life-domestic and industrial comes to a standstill.
