The washing machine was spinning. The ceiling fans were whirring. And my husband’s music was blasting. Then all of a sudden. Nothing. Silence. There was no power.
Living in Mumbai, we’re blessed with a 24 hour power supply, guaranteed. So, when there’s a power outage there’s definitely something up. It didn’t take too long to find out what.
A man from Reliance Energy had dug a hole right near our house. Without warning, he’d dug up the cable and cut it. To perform some maintenance works apparently. He was in the middle of repairing the cable when we discovered him.
When will it be fixed? “In about one hour.”
