Shillong Jottings

The twinkling saga!
As we make our rounds to Khyndailad, the burning question on everyone’s mind isn’t about traffic anymore – it’s a spotlight concern: “When will they take off the festive lights?”
Christmas is a distant memory, and we’ve bid farewell to the new year, yet the state government seems to be stuck in a festive time warp. The twinkling stars and crescent moon still adorn the city.

Sure, credit where it’s due – the city underwent a magical transformation under the shimmering lights. But here’s the thing: it’s about time for the government to move beyond the temporary glitz and invest in some permanent lighting, especially street lights. Many corners of the city are swallowed by darkness, and it’s about time we shed some light on that issue.
Now, let’s talk about the elephant in the room – what if this prolonged light show leads to a power shortage for the common folks in the months to come? It’s a concern shared by many. So, while we appreciate the festive spirit, maybe it’s time for the government to think about a more sustainable and well-lit future for the city.
