Powercut on Sundays...

For the third consecutive Sunday, I have seen a day long powercut in Bangalore. It just drives you nuts when it is the same scheduled power cut for some stupid "maintainence work". What bothers me more is that this happens only on a Sunday, and from 10am - 5pm. The whole area, under 5km radius of the Airport is blacked out on sundays. Around 60% of the households in this area are for sure populated by techy couples, or bachelors working for the neighbourhood IT shop, who only get a Sunday to stay at home, and maybe sip some coffee with a newspaper, under a fan, rather than the usual daily dose of Java code. With bad roads, bad traffic, insanely crowded malls and multiplexes, now one cant even relax at home !
