Yesterday night at 9 PM, the entire nation followed the instructions sent out by the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. As per the appeal of the Prime Minister, the citizens turned off all the lights of their respective houses. They then came out in their balconies with candlelights and stayed out for 9 minutes.
A few citizens did not follow the guidelines, citing that turning off all lights at one time will affect the electrical grids. There was a chance that the electrical grids would get affected because a majority of the power supply was not used because of the vigil.
Fortunately, there was no such incident like that last night as the claims of the opposition members proved absolutely wrong. Aaj Tak’s Executive Editor, Anjana Om Kashyap, sent out a tweet about the same this morning. Her tweet has gone viral on the internet, receiving over 75,000 likes inside 12 hours. Nearly 12,000 Twitter users have also retweeted her tweet.
Here’s a look at what Anjana wrote:
कोई ग्रिड तो नहीं फेल हुआ।कुछ के ब्रेन ग्रिड में शॉर्ट सर्किट ज़रूर हो गया।मोमबत्ती ब्रिगेड को मोमबत्ती से एलर्जी के लक्षण दिखे।जस रौशनी हुई तस प्रजा में ही अब खोट दिखने लगी।लगता है पड़ोसियों ने भी इनकी बात नहीं सुनी!

The Executive Editor of India’s leading news channel sent out a message to the citizens in Hindi. Her tweet translates as follows:
“No grid has failed. Some brain grids have a short circuit. The candle brigade has seen symptoms of allergy to candles. It was only now that the lighted eyes started to show a fault. The neighbors did not even listen to them!”
