Baandhkar Suraj Hum Jo Chale
"High rise buildings, well lit malls and shining cars, that is how our cities look in the night. But when it comes to our villages, the picture is not that bright. Streets become dark & desolate after sunset. Kerosene and paraffin lamps are the only options available for lighting. The dim light and the toxic fumes soon fill up the house, affecting livelihood and health of the people. Lighting a Billion Lives is an initiative that strives to change the picture of these un-electrified villages. With the help of solar lighting devices, TERI commits to provide clean lighting to rural households and generate livelihood opportunities in villages. We commit to light a billion lives."
