    So most of you would be affected, ( I am too, however thanks to power back up, can atleast be online ). Whats the status? How bad is it?

    Last night the missus reported all street lights not working on the expressway even ( ~ 4 am ).

    The power minister said, this happened last in 2002, however they have restored 60% power.

    The entire North India was shut due to the grid failing, which is approx 300 Mill, maybe even more. UP is included, the most populated state in India.

    And it failed again today. With over 19 states in darkness and more than 60 Crore people affected.

    I agree with what stoney posted on FB today. At such a time our defense systems should be on high alert, this could be a good time for our friendly neighbors to test the strength of our fence.
