India has just seen what may be the world’s largest power cut, tossing more than 600 million people off the grid. This is half of the population. As you can see from the storify below, or read here (NYTimes) or here (Mashable), this is insane. Our power failures in Sri Lanka were scheduled, announced and minimal, and yet they still really hurt the economy and sucked. I can only imagine what Indians are going through.
As a small consolation, you can watch our video above on what sub-continentals can do during these trying times. You can see 10 Things To Do During Power Cuts in the video above, or click through to the YAMU link for some reading. Good luck. Hope the lights come back soon. You never know how much you miss this century until it’s gone.
