98% of India lacks adequate clean water and power

Surendra Rao, formerly India’s top electricity regulator, said the national grid had a sophisticated system of circuit breakers that should have prevented such a blackout. But he attributed this week’s problems to the bureaucrats who control the system, saying that civil servants are beholden to elected state leaders who demand that more power be diverted to their regions — even if doing so threatens the stability of the national grid.

btw, power (and clean water) is a luxury for 99% (sorry, maybe 98) of india’s population. most have to source on their own, if they can – not always easy. i would say most of indians might actually be feeling happy about this – good, let the others taste what we live in prepetuity.
