While the entire city revelled into the celebrations of Diwali with no power cut, Airoli residents had a miserable day. The residents’ Diwali celebrations were marred due to hours of no electricity and water, reports Navi Mumbai News Correspondent Milind Tambe. Diwali mornings mean waking up early, wearing new clothes and enjoying Diwali delicacies with family and friends but not for the residents of Airoli. While the residents thought that power supply would be restored in two hours like any other day of load shedding, they were shocked and frustrated as several hours went by with no power. Evidently, there was no water supply either. Leaving residents with no power or water on Diwali day. For several households this meant a mess with kitchen filled with unwashed utensils and clothes spread in a mess. Residents started calling their guests and asked them not to come. Having lost all faith in MSEDC to attempt doing something so that there Diwali is not totally spoilt, residents of Madhuban Society at Sector 6, Airoli, inspired by Gandhigiri – in their words bought a generator for Rs. 7 thousand. While electricity was restored, there wasn’t any water and there was little that residents could do on that front. The MSEDC informed that there was a short circuit in one of the transformers in Mulund that led to the power failure in Airoli. Indeed, one Diwali for residents of Airoli spoilt so bad that Diwali celebrations turned into the worst nightmares of residents.
