It is just amazing to see sometimes, what a simple intervention, like installing a light bulb can mean to a person.
Meet Dipika who lives in a place surrounded by a vast spread of mangroves, pretty close to the creek meeting the sea. Her family has been living there for decades and relied on Kerosene lamps for lighting all these years before we had the opportunity to serve them.
Dipika, who has recently become a mother shared some interesting things with us on our recent visit to her. She told us they keep a light bulb ON all night. We were quite curious to know why? She told, “Keeping lights ON all night helps them to be more secure from snakes and mosquitoes, ensuring a much safer environment for her newly born daughter”.
All this, just through a light bulb.
