For the country where only 15 per cent of its population have access to electricity, Nepal has come a long way. It took 84 years to achieve power generation of 250 megawatt. And only five years to add a whopping 125 megawatt through microhydels, an increase of 50 per cent. Since 1995, community-based power generation and distribution have ushered in a social revolution. Now Nepal's remotest hills generate their own electricity in their backyard. India, despite its vast hydro potential, chooses to ignore this clean and economically viable option.

Kashmir is said to have lost an entire season. Based on responses to a Down To Earth survey, Lian Chawii met residents of select towns in the Himalaya.
