Everybody is supposed to switch off electricity for an hour in an attempt to save earth. I personally find it amusing as we are doing our bit by not using electricity as we hardly ever get it anyway !:bonk Advertisements in the media make it sound as if the entire population of the world is living in the lap of luxury , people are shown holding candles and sweating it out. The bitter fact is that potable water and electricity is still a dream for many. It sounds like Earth Hour is only for city people .
