Power Situation in Bombay

I was reading the ECONOMIST Magazine yesterday, the one that had the cover page on the "Overheating of India's Economy". I am sorry I couldn't find the link for that article.

It was a well written piece which concluded with the steps India has to take to maintain the expected 10% growth in the coming years.

One of the few areas they touched were Education and Infrastructure.

Today, while I was browsing thru SUMANASA which is a nice news website, I came across this article on the power situation in BOMBAY..aka 'The Financial Capital of India". Please look the numbers on this chart.

How does this reflect on the Infrastructure ? Where are the "Rupees" that came out of the 8-10% growth being spent ?

they have none but themselves to blame, pls dont equate it to we, including entire india.

first the failed enron, second they din restructure MSEB, etc. so the mumbaikara/maharastrians are to blame.
