Here I read a post related to Massive power failure in North India: Delhi metro services hit. Must say you are explained this in a most interesting way. Love your blog post a lot. I think such big power failure will affect many of the travelers. Not only before today also large number of people depended on metro rails. This is mainly due to the huge traffic. If you go by other vehicles it will take long time to reach your destination. One could not reach on time. This type of power failure mainly affects the people who are working in distance places. I have read in other news blog that there are some trains got stuck in tunnels. That forced them to close all entry points to Metro stations. The Metro Rail officials used emergency services to rescue the passengers stranded in trains stuck in tunnels. And they took them to the nearest stations.

There are lakhs of passengers were stuck as railway services. And Delhi Metro Rail came to a halt following massive power disruption in northern, eastern and north-eastern parts of the country on that Tuesday afternoon. Power outage also affected road traffic, already affected due to water-logged pathways. In Delhi as signals stopped working in the city. Various other essential services were also hit due to power failure.
