Life in Darkness - A Photo Essay by Bikash Malakar

Electricity Crisis in Nepal

The electricity crisis in Nepal has been worsened by 10 years of war, which ended in 2006 and produced an inhibiting effect on any new investment; corruption including electricity theft and a steep rise in demand. The resulting cuts affect almost everyone - schools, private hospitals (government ones have special electricity provision), and businesses.

Serious attention to ending this crisis is needed to save Nepal from entering a vicious circle of unemployment, unrest and instability.

The Life in Darkness collection documents the winter of 2009 of the people in the Kathmandu Valley, when they had no electricity for as long as 16 hours a day.

    it's sad that such things are still happening in the 21st century.

    it's not that these things happen, but they happen in so many countries. even some fast developing countries have this. there are places where they don't hesitate to spend tens of thousands of dollars for electrical devices, but still have electricity issues....
