Weekend without E!

June 19, 2010

Bangalore and Electricity do not go together and especially on weekends! Grrrr…..!!! Needless to mention, we have inverter to cope up with it. But how long???

As usual, I got up thanking god its Saturday and I can sleep a lot lot more in the mornings! And was about to doze off when power went off. In my half awake state, I calmed myself on seeing the black inverter box next to my bed.  The fan was still on. Zzzzzz…..! But then after 3-4 hours, inverter’s battery drained off and me too! I just could not imagine my weekend start without electricity. I had some good plans to cook tasty food. Undeterred to give in, I decided I will continue with my plans as usual. And I am really happy now writing this piece which otherwise would not have been possible.

I could prepare the planned dhaba sytle food.. more details @

And unexpectedly, the evening (yes there was no electricity till evening) turned out beautiful.  We stayed on terrace full evening under slight drizzle with mild music and few books!  No electricity made it a perfect weekend evening.

Wow! First time, no complaints for electricity!

I just enjoyed.  And will not write more but rather share few pics which Darshit took.

    Thank god the rain gods are lenient towards us! So, the heat is bearable and we can enjoy small pleasures in the terrace! Next time, you are on apartment hunting, check for places with 100% backup! It helps! 🙂

      hehehe… I am sure you will still be getting many such chances becoz inverter works only for 3-4 hours and bangalore electricity mostly goes off for 8-9 hours 😛

    way to go!!
