In both the locations of my native place as well as in Delhi in a rented accommodation, I do have arrangements to carry out the jo bs even the times when there is consistency in electricity failure. So in the rarest of the rare cases that I may feel irritated otherwise there is no problem.
But it will be very frustrating if we lose our work because of power failure. Everyone will feel very unhappy as they have to repeat the work.
More than the work it is the heat in summer that becomes a issue to deal with during constant power cuts in homes that do not have UPS or backup generator power, it would become hot and humid.

Even this challenging situation would ease
However, we do have a two battery inverter which takes care of the short duration power cuts. We have fitted only LCD bulbs in our residence so that the inverter can take load of many for longer duration.
As far as working on a laptop is concerned, in most of the laptops autosave system is provided. However, while working on an important project, one has to be extra-vigilant and arrange for an UPS at home also.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
Honesty is the best policy.
For the minimal needs of lighting and essential fan for a few hours we have installed an inverter in our home.
For my computer I was using a UPS, but very recently when it was most essential, the UPS also failed .
Due to the inverter charging the current bill increases even when we supposed it to be less due to power failure frequently.
In our place we have the lightning during rains and as precaution I disconnect even the inverter. So, on the whole we are not able to have a trouble free and tension free times. So when the power goes during rains and lightning, practically I stay power less until the lightning subsides.
I can imagine the plight of the students especially during examination time, if they do not have an alternate then they have to suffer.
Although , in the present situation services have improved and power cuts are not too frequent in many big cities .
When I came to Delhi, I had to suffer from power-cuts for 8-10 hours during peak summer season. It was a terrible and hellish experience. Fortunately, the locality where I live now does not witness any power-cut. Overall, the power-cut hours have come down all over India. I hope the power-cut hours become zero in near futture.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
