Shillong Jottings


Share post:


Power cuts to go on a vacation!
In what can be a fortuitous incident or divine intervention, the state residents are bracing themselves for the unthinkable: a respite from the tyrannical grip of power outages! If the powerful do stick to their words, this year would be finally the year of light.
What would life without power cuts mean? One does not have to schedule your life around those dreaded 6 to 8-hour blackouts. It would be no less than a celebration of normalcy for the electrically-challenged state.
It would also mean no more living in fear of drained laptops and phones, no more serenading the neighbourhood with the cacophony of generator symphonies.
Instead what can you hear? It’s the sweet sound of TVs humming, and WiFi signals buzzing with excitement.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, dear authorities. We’re grateful for this unexpected gift, but please, don’t mistake our jubilation for complacency. Stick to your promises, and we’ll keep the party poppers on standby.
The state residents get excited with the bare minimum, indeed low maintenance.
So here’s to assumably brighter days ahead, where the only power struggle we face is deciding what to binge-watch next!
