Friends, today I’m not going to talk about PHP , Ajax or MySql either. I’m going to talk about the disaster and hurdle I’m facing here in Nepal as web developer in this stone-age country.I haven’t found any place to show my frustration so I’m sharing my grief out here in this blog.
Well you might be thinking why this person is so frustrated??? The main reason behind this is electricity cut off.We’re facing daily 8 hour electricity cut off which government named as a load shedding.And no electricity for 8 hour means a lot for the developers like me.While you are writing a code for the particular module and if you are interrupted by some reason it will take another 1 hour to get back to place where you were before. Interruption for 8 hour per day is really frustrating at all. I’m a coder and i collect bucks for me and my family by writing code.I get paid for the hourly basis. How the f$#k will survive if i can’t write the code???
And further adding to my frustration, Nepal electricity Authority has decided to increase the 8 hour load shedding to 11 hour,if there will not be any rain in Next two week.So I’ve to face this situation until the next heavy rainfall because electricity production in our country massively depends upon the hydro-power.Which means I’ve to wait until rainy season if there will not be any rain in next two week. I’ve to spend the half of the day without electricity. What should i do at that time? Now I’m shouting at myself why did i become a programmer or IT Professional?? Why didn’t i chose another field where electricity is less needed for daily routine??
Now somebody will say if you really need electricity that much why don’t you use generator. Right, i can use the generator but where the hell is Petrol and Diesel in our country?? If you go to any petrol station, you can find two board attached , NO DIESEL and NO PETROL. If you see a very long queue of vehicles and motorbikes somewhere around a petrol station then you can easily guess that this station is distributing petrol and you can join the queue but its not sure weather you get the Diesel or Petrol or not!!!
God please help me !!!!!!!
