Village With 24Hours Electricity

*Yo photo chai random gau ko ho hai.

Some GOOD NEWS. Whilst Kathmanduitees face long hours spent in darkness some rural village’s are living in basic luxury! Residents of Parche VDC in Kaski enjoy 24 hours interrupted electricity supply for only Rs100 a month. Now obviously, these residents in the village probably don’t have about a dozen light bulbs in each room and a TV/laptop/stereo/blender and everything but it’s GOOD to know that the rural area is making a progress.

Another news of progress is that Sinam, a village in Taplejung which had phone connections till the late 90’s is being more connected now as more residents are acquiring telephone and TV ownership. In the rural area’s solar power is god-gifted as that is used to supply energy for electricity. I frequently spoke to my grandma over the phone in Sinam till the late 90’s, however after the Maoists worked their magic by destroying the cables Sinam was out of contact from the world. Thankfully the village is back on the road to being connected. Hoping more villages are success stories such as these two. 😀
How luxurious is your gau?
