My grandparents had come to visit me a couple of months back. They are from a small town in Gujarat and pretty new to city life. The last time I went there, they still didn't have 24-hour electricity at home. One evening I was watching the highlights of an old cricket match. My grandfather suddenly commented that Jadeja will hit a four in the next ball. I was surprised that he was right. I looked at him, and he told me that he had been following India's live matches for more than a year. But how? They didn't have electricity. It was the wind power project which has lit up almost 40 remote villages in Gujrat. The news kept me smiling for days.
