The ever elusive power. A thing which is non existent especially in summers as power-cuts prevail. Often used interchangeably with the word Bijli, this is a term which all politicians claim has been given to all Indians and free to farmers of Punjab, but people are yet to see it in their homes


"Oh ho, light gaye, bahar ja k dekhi apne hi gaye hai ya sarea de udi hai"
("Oh no another power cut, go check outside if its our house only or everyone is reeling from it)
