In this 21st century, no electricity directly links to no development in life. Today, our lives is  totally surrounded by electric freak gadgets. Every minute one or the other device used by people requires electric connection. In such scenario, it is out of our imagination that people still are dependent on natural light and with the dusk in the nature the light of their lives also set off.

A great start of development to poor! A fantastic approach to connect to common people!
