This is supposed to be a power starved state. The city has two-hour power cuts everyday while in the mofussil it is ten hours and more. And yet, when it comes to political events and politicians’ family weddings, power appears to be literally available on tap. Just passed by Santhome High Road where one side is ablaze with tube-lights, each topped with a flag. Where does the power come for this? And who is paying for it? And surely whoever is celebrating should at least out of a sense of solidarity with the less privileged have avoided this extravagance? Or is that empathy and sympathy only the prerogative of the less exalted?
