Whenever there is a power shutdown, the UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) kicks on. This is the norm in every other household and commercial establishment nowadays in India.

For me, this indicates that the Government is unable to provide electricity but the citizen is able to afford alternate means of electricity on their own. It shows that the Government is unable to provide basic means of living to it's citizenry 24*7 but the citizenry can take care of itself without Government's assistance for a few hours. Its like a slap on the Government!

If only this was true for water too...Welcome the Rainfall! :-)

I don't think so.. Indians are good in saving money for future, and they are doing the same with Electricity as well. And government is assisting them by providing enough electricity to get their UPS charged. Real slap on the face would be when people start installing solar panels thus not depending on government at all, not even for charging their UPS.
