This wouldn't happen, if they have a timing device that switches off municipal street lights at the crack of dawn.The photo pertains to my JLB Rd. neighbourhood in Mysore. During our morning walk my wife and I occasionally run into a municipal staffer on a bike doing the rounds of power switch-boxes fitted on every other electric pole. On this morning I was late for the walk; so was the switch-man.
