In this village, there is a big problem with electricity, normally villages have a power cut once a day in a week but in this village, there is no power cut there is no schedule for the power cut. It’s not like there is no light continuously 3 to 4 days but the light goes on in between.
And this is due to the power supply wires are not underground they are from one pole to another pole. In this village, there is heavy rain in the rainy season and at that time there are more chances of the storm and when the storm comes many trees fall and due to this the tree directly falls on the pole or the power supply wires so in this case, it gets two to three days to fix this problem.
