It is a twinkle for months together,
It works for a specific time altogether,
Twinkle does it for 3 hours in the morn.
It recedes to a hole in the post morn.
Then it comes out in the afternoon.
Again for three hours it lights up in the noon
Back it goes down in the dusk.
Remains so almost in a husk.
Appears for an hour from thence.
Quickly disappears from shining hence.
Surfaces again for an hour-long.
Hides itself in pitch dark for little long.
Shoots up from nowhere all at once.
Will it sustain the switch offs in a sense?
What is it all about? you may wonder.
It might be Greek or Latin to you.
Well, that is what we endure everyday.
Switch ons and switch offs of electricity through the day
Make us wriggle in scorching heat
Affect the industrial output in a beat.
Lets the children study with candles lighted.
The administration goes about with mirth elated.
Do you want to know about the place,I am talking?
It is Tamilnadu, the southern state of India, in the awakening,
Nevertheless, they say India is shining incredibly! all the more.
I want to bring to light this failure of electricity to the world more and more
