How easy it is to preach than practice. One such example was heard only last month in Hyderbad, also called Cyberabad. Representatives from the IT industry had urged the government to reduce the duration of power cuts as they could not run generators for five to six hours. Then there were reports that said that the local government had barred the VIP zones from the power cuts while the private regions continued to suffer. Unfair, isn’t it?
Unlike Hyderabad, in Madhya Pradesh and particularly in Indore, we have been reading reports of all the government offices being instructed by the State not to use air conditioners. Most Indians would view it as ‘divine justice’ as at least once the government offices and VIP zones have suffered the brunt of others’ carelessness.
However, at AnyLinuxWork, we have realized one thing- whoever’s fault it is, consequences have to be borne by all. Hence, we have become all the more vigilant in using electricity wisely. Most employees, instead of choosing to mock at their public sector counterparts, have decided to practice wise consumption of power at homes, offices that they visit or friends’ houses that they go to.
Many of them have been sharing experiences where they have made it a point to switch off bulbs, fans, coolers etc when not in use. Shares an employee, “Even if I use a changing room of a shopping mall, I ensure that I switch off the light before leaving.”
Wow! That sounds very responsible and pretty much like the IO culture that has been so well-embedded in the hearts and minds of our employees. In the last blog itself, we had shared how wise power consumption is steadily becoming the habit of most of our employees not only at offices but also at homes.
That way, IO members feel that they are able to justly return the sacrifice being made by the public sector employees of the State. We truly respect the State Government’s stand on this. And we wish to say that we are with them in saving precious electricity.
Please do feel free to share your ‘power’ smart ideas with us.
