We got electricity. Finally !!

Most of the world is agog with upcoming Obama's inauguration and I also belong to that part of the world. But I have something else to cheer for which depending on how you look at is equally exciting.

Sisautiya, the village in Nepal where I was born, finally has electricity. Yes. Yes and Yes. This is the village where I spent the first 16 years of life and went to a nearby high school which also did not have electricity. I hope my grand parents have saved the lantern that I used.
