Earth Hour Dilemma

Tomorrow (19th March, Saturday) evening 8.30 to 9.30 pm is the designated Earth Hour. Every year we get an official email about what we should be doing and why we are doing it etc. Thankfully this year it is in the evening. Once it was during office hours during the lunch time which led to some funny moments. Dark corridors, people getting scared by colliding with someone from around the corner etc. It’s broad daylight you say. Well, not exactly when you are in a closed office space where the only light is from the tube lights or bulbs.

But this year’s Earth hour does come with its own share of a dilemma. You all know that cricket is a very important sport in India and World T20 matches are going on. Even though I don’t follow them anymore I know, from the advertisements, that there is an important match tomorrow (19th March, Saturday). Clash of the Titans – India vs Pakistan. It is always a very emotional game where these two countries are involved, thanks very much to the media hype that tries to gain more TRP ratings. And guess what, the match starts at 7.30 pm. Now I stopped watching that game, so I will be able to adhere the Earth hour (which I do every year) but what will the fans of cricket be doing? Lots of people are giving advises to share the screen and watch the match. But what about the stadium? Are they going to switch off the floodlights? Gonna be a tough decision.

      🙂 yeah, may be. As long as the players are playing in the light.

    I wish they would turn off the street lights for one hour between 11:00 pm -12:00 once a week so we can visualize the night sky better.

      Well… We don’t have street lights in most of our areas, so I guess we are compensating for that 😉 Jokes aside, yeah, it would be so good.

          Not that lucky apparently. With the pollution out here we have to be at a higher altitude for that. Next weekend I will get that chance 🙂

                Can you manage a picture of the stars. I’d love to see your skies.

              I will try my level best, Leslie. I have been wanting to do a time lapse on stars but always end up in a place which is more cloudy. Let me see what luck has in store for me this time!
