    Yes. The precautions mentioned by the author are really good and one should follow without fail. In rainy seasons the walls will be wet and if the earthing is not proper there are chances to have a shock. So one should keep this in mind and take care. Another point to be kept in mind is that there will not be any bear wire joints. Such joints should be covered using an insulation tape.
    always confident

    Electricity is a great enabler to us and most of our gadgets and equipments run on it. The author has given a number of good tips for handling and operating the electric switches and appliances. In big buildings sometimes there are leakages in the water pipes and other downhole pipes and as everything is concealed it becomes difficult to find out the cause of water leakage and seepage in the building. So in such cases even in non-rainy season there are dangers if some moisture or seepage enters the switch board. So people living in such old buildings or high-rise buildings should take care in this matter.
    Knowledge is power.
