Can you believe the life without electricty? Thats what happening in our country. Our country Electricty board is providing electricty for only 8 hours a day. Then how can we do the works. So I cant get enough time to work in computer. Can you spend time without electricty in your home? Give some suggestion to our government?

Hi umeshthapa! Oh I am really sorry to learn of that. I don't think I will ever be comfortable without electricity. I am so used to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, there are other remote areas here in my country that still have electricity for 8 hours and less and in some areas, don't really have electricity at all. These areas are very, very far and mostly are in the mountainside. But I think that our government is doing their best in allocating more funds for this areas so they will be supplied with more energy/electricity. I really think that this is very costly and unless there will be investors who will be putting up electric companies, the process will be kinda slow. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Gosh I just couldn't imagine daily life without electricity. Here in Italy it can happen that during a thunderstorm (usually in the summer months) the electricity is cut but at the most for a few hours and then it's back to normal again. The last time I can remember it be off for a longer time was thirty years ago after some heavy snow falls which caused branches to break and fall onto the power lines. I use electricity for cooking instead of gas and to be without it would be quite a problem. Then no computer or television uhm, doesn't bear thinking about. I guess I could go back to reading but by candle light. What about hospitals and factories in your country - are they without it too? The 8 hours that you have it, I assume you know when that will be? Is it every day only 8 hours? Gosh I really think ti would take me a long time to get used to being without it because I am so used to having it. I guess that unless I stop and think, I don't always realise how lucky I am

Here in America we have an almost constant flow. For us a blackout is a rare and distressing thing. Partially because it happens unexpectedly. I am sure that the government is trying to conserve resources because though fuel is plentiful they don't want to pollute the environment and because they don't have the resources to build more power generating plants. Hydro electricity and wind energy however are viable alternative to using radioactive materials. But once the flow of electricity becomes constant it will propogate itself, just as it does here in America, this will lead to higher costs for power, because if you h ave it constantly you will use it constantly. Some is better than none though. There are many countries and many places where electricity is not available outside of the large cities. And even if it were available to them they wouldn't be able to afford it.

Our country is second world largest country having water supply. But our country cant build new hydro electricty power house to supply enough electry. From this year we got such problem. Because new house are bulding up but supply is constant.

We don't have that problem very often here, occasionally in real bad weather we will lose power, or if someone has an accident and hits a power line or something, but most of the time the power is readily available. The longest ours has ever been off is one full day, and we were worried about our frozen and refrigerated food. It would be difficult to be in your situation. I hope it gets fixed for you.

Yes electricity is important to everyone in my country also there are power cuts but there are regular ups and downs of electricity so that i am not able to operate my computer properly. Power cut 8 hours a day is a very big problem i think it would be fine if some one invents a computer that can run with out using electricity.

Hi umeshthapa, nowadays our daily life is quite relying on electricity. In this modern world if without the supply of electricity we surely would feel handicapped as almost all the appliances, equipments, facilities and etc are depending on electricity. Luckily I live in the area where we could enjoy the facility of electricity supply of 24 hours per day. What a pity it is there are still lots of people in my country who live in the remote areas still couldn’t enjoy the supply of electricity totally and some areas have electricity supply for certain hours only every day. The authority concerned always promise to develop the said areas with basic facilities of electricity and water supply and the inhabitants there still have to wait for the further construction. I would feel annoyed and couldn’t do anything if the electricity supply breaks for few hours. So I could imagine how tortured the people are living in places without any electricity supply Happy posting and have a nice day.

i also can;t beleive life without electricity . as i am also indian , i know that in india we get electricity for 8 hours in some areas. and in summer we get less hours sometimes because of the less electricity production .with this less electricity, many are getting problems in their day to day life.and even farmers are effecting with less electrcity. govt should take steps for producing more electricity and give full time supply .lets hope that new govt will solve all our problems soon after when they come. as now i am in kuwait ,here we don;t have electricity problem because of less population here. here this govt takes good steps for electricity and here we get 24 hours electricity without fail. yearly once or like that ,here electricity will go ,because of any major problems here. so like this govt policies ,india should also maintain . for indian govt ,if they first reduce population, they can produce more electricity i think in future.lets hope for so.
