Power cuts are taken for granted in India - Its a shame that we have grown so much in IT and yet we have power cuts in India!..Well it is too much to ask for power when there is no water to wash in Chennai!..How many of the Chennaites would dare drink corporation water?? Let me see if there is atleast one person.?

Well we all know about Indian politics, corruption and how the public sector works!

What can we ask for ? Shorter power cuts..that's all.!

That said - I find it amazing that several ares in NY were without power for 2 weeks ! Wonder how that happened?

I checked the TNEB site for the first time. When you click English, its all in English, When you click tamil, its all english again, except the title of the page.!?
So, did you have power in your place?
