We notice in the newspaper and on TV channels that PEPCO is spending million on adds telling awam how to save electricity. Truly speaking awam is fed up of being told what to do and what not to do and now they have reached a stage where they would do what they think is best for them. Putting AC on 26oC is not practical because in this heat the room is over heated. It does not dry even your perspiration. Now what people do is have the AC on 18oC for half an hour and when the room cools down then change it to 22oC only then you have a comfortable time. Awam insists that our rulers should have their ACs on 26o and then sit with their designer suit and tie and tell us how they feel. - Col (r) R. M. AKHTAR, Lahore, via e-mail, July 4.
