Load Shedding means discontinuation of the supply of electricity. It happens when the supply of electricity is insufficient. In order to cope with the shortage of supply of electricity, the authority concerned stops the flow of electricity to some areas for some time. It is almost a daily occurrence inour country. There is hardly any area which is not affected by it. When the supply of current is stopped in an area, the whole area plungers into darkness. Shops, factories, houses, hospitals, etc. are mainly affected by it. Life comes to a standstill.
Mills and factories stop functioning for the time being. If it is continued for several hours,the production hampers seriously. The students are affected by it if it occurs at night. They site idle in the dark closing their books. Owing to load shedding food kept in the refrigerators gets rotten. The commodities kept in the cold storage get spoilt. Air-conditioners and fans stop functioniong. Load shedding is a curse to the patients in hospitals. So lode shedding is a great problem. It should not be allowed to continue. We want to get rid of this problem. As such, we want that our government should think over the matter and take necessary steps to check it as early as possible.
