Most of the public are skeptic that anything would be done in this regard and are waiting for Kudankulam Nuclear power station to get operation believing that this could rid us of some of the hassles. However, the agitation headed by one Mr.Udayakumar, a former employee of the plant and now a major activist against the plant continues impeding all attempts to initiate the reactor.

However the distinctiveness of a weekly pattern has been revealed during power-cuts on Tuesday (early midnight 00:45hrs - mirroring the same timing last week.) The existence of a pattern will, at the minimum help us easily work around this temporarily.
