Sure India is making headlines every day with its infrastructure and technology, but rural India is still backwards in many aspects. A few villages in India still live in darkness without electricity. A village in Leh district called Photoksar nestled between two major high altitude passes of Ladakh, finally got power supply for the first time since the independence. It is a life-changing event for the residents of the village who lived in darkness for 73 years.
Residents Celebrate The Advent Of Electricity
Quite ironically, in a country where there are breakthrough technological advancements, certain hamlets are still celebrating the advent of electricity. Chairman and Chief Executive Councillor (CEC) Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Leh Tashi Gyalson inaugurated the NHPC power grid line for Photoksar village.

Studies Will Now Be More Convenient For Students
The residents are jumping with joy with the power supply in the village. The residents feel that electricity will help their children do well in their studies who would otherwise study using lamps and lanterns. The power supply will now make their lives much more convenient. You Can Now Buy A Piece Of Land In Ladakh With This New Law.
5 More Ladakh Hamlets To Get Electricity
Tashi Gyalson lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi to electrify the remote village. PM Modi launched the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana, and the energetic efforts of Ladakh after 70 years of darkness. The government is also working tirelessly to bring electricity to five other hamlets including Yulchung, Nyraks, Skyumpata, Lingshed and Dipling in the coming years.
Let us hope that light comes to every place in rural India.
