Dim lit chronicles of the lady and the lantern: Look at how a single lantern can both defy and define the darkness of mundane life. Darkness is the tragic hero of the catastrophic phenomenon we call life. In general assumption we all hate or fear the sense of any dark matter but in actuality these time of gloominess are the signifier of the brighter side of affairs. And that tiny bit of light that guides us through the dull corridor of uncertainty is the leap of faith that reignites humanity inside us.
The curse of living in a third world country often knocks at our daily life in different forms. The unglamorous occurrences of load-shedding have certainly become a frequent visitor and have successfully designed a vast impact onto our lives. As much as we hate this state of affairs we cannot deny we all have some mesmerizing memories of power cuts.
