Power fluctuations!

Am not sure if BESCOM is doing some kind of regression testing in Madivala. But the power situation over the past few days is crazy, if not weird. Power goes off once every 3 hours. And the duration of power cut ranges from 2 seconds(yes, there was a powercut for 2 seconds) to 2 hours.

Its really crazy. The power goes, when I want to iron my clothes, use the mixer, or watch a sports event. No idea, for how many more days we have to put up with this?

Is it like this in other areas too?

    Yes, Yes yes

    Our tubelights blink, bulbs bow out for 2 seconds and harm every electornic equipment. Unscheduled load scheddding for 1 hour in morning and evening is mandatory – this is the fate of padhmanabhanagar (ward 55) which our CM affectionately calls “his place”

    I had to buy new voltage stabilizers and get my TV repaired due to this. BESCOM has the track record of saying
    a) Faulty wiring ( never mind if house is 5 years old only)
    b) We cant help if coconut tress shed things on powerlines for this surge…Jayanagar and JP nagar residents are proof for this

    This is the worst kind of powersupply BESCOM does.
