I woke up in the morning in bed on last Sunday as the steadily
rotating fan halted and I started sweating. I turned my head to check
the switch and understood that the power supply was off. I walked in bath room to brush up. The water was cold. I switched on
the heater and let it on, in the hope that electricity will come back.
I could not have toasted bread, dosa and hot chocolate as the electric stove is not on. I finished my bath with cold water, as quickly as I could. Then I got ready and went
out to have breakfast. I sat on the sofa and thought of what I could do the rest
of the day.
Normally, I would have watched the TV for some time, but it was
off. I used the headphone and radio on my cell phone to listen to music
for some time. When I had enough of it, I went off to complete my assignments.
It was dark without the lights, so I opened the windows and drew the curtains
aside. I opened the door into the balcony. I worked on my study
table and completed the engineering, maths and Science assignments. There remained my
English, Russian and French tasks.
I went to a garden in my house and sat there for a
while. Then I wanted to water the plants. But the
electric motor wouldn't turn on. I mowed the lawns and then returned to
the living room. I told my my father that an inverter is essential.
He said he had just ordered one.
We went out for the lunch, as we could not cook. The mixer
and the oven did not work. The inside of the refrigerator was getting
warmer. But, we couldn't do much. We returned later in the afternoon. I could not work on the
computer either, as it was off. Normally, I would play some games for
some time and then work on some sites.
I inquired if there was power supply at my friends house. I
had gone there to watch the cricket match. When it finished, I
returned home. Still, there was no electricity. We brought two
emergency lamps in to the living room and all of us sat there for the rest of
the evening. We discussed a lot of things relating to all of us.
I went to the nearby restaurant to bring some snacks for the
evening for all of us. We took our dinner and retired to our bed rooms.
We switched off all the lights and gadgets in the living room and the
hall. I sat in the balcony on a chair and relaxed. I enjoyed the
cool breeze touching my face and hands from time to time.
After two hours in the night I was getting sleep. So I lied
down on the bed and kept the fan switch on. I slept off and woke up next morning but with the fan rotating. I liked it so much at the instant.
With renewed energy I got up and got myself ready for breakfast and school.
