India blackout and electricity power outage – an annotated graphic

Following the widespread power blackouts in India earlier this week, we present this infographic detailing the extent of the outage. It also recalls other major national blackouts in recent years from around the world, from Brazil to China. Britain in the 1970s is not featured. Ahh, we remember fondly those evenings huddled around a camping gaz stove, candles guttering in the winter night.
