    Gulf News!!! My Salutes to you. I am resident of Sharjah facing and experiencing these power cuts and seeing your newspaper i understood the severity and the extensivity of the trauma and pain suffered by the residents. Its sad that after all these years SEWA had not done anything to solve this, Shame! I send my family back to my country after experiencing the trauma a month back and now i feel that what i have done is right!!!. Thank You once again for talking for the helpless people who can only suffer all this in silence.

    I am staying in Buhaira Corniche area in Majaz and we experienced a power cut from 12pm -9:15pm yesterday for a 2 bedroom flat for which I am paying a rent of 60k. Conversely, it is a shame that empty flats and offices in the tower next to my building were lit up in darkness when the whole city was sweltering in the heat due to power cut. This building has offices/flats which are vacant for months and are wasting electricity 24hrs.

    I think by switching of the street lights in Sharjah from 10pm to 5am will save a lot of power and by that the duration of these power cuts can be reduced.

    I am staying in National paint area, near UAE exchange. In this area power went on Monday around 10.30 am and it was not restored till 11 O' clock Tuesday night. Really it was a heart breaking sceen that families with their small children were wandering here and there and spending time in Cars and all. In such a peak Summer, power cut without any prior information is very difficult for the residents and I here by request the authorities to provide a time table/schedule for power cuts so that people can atleast adjust accordingly.
