Out of India's 1.2 billion population, 400 million lack access to electricity,where majority resides in Rural areas. Without access they are forced into a life of abject poverty and under-development Northeastern states suffer from extremely low rates of household electrification.
Most people in the rural areas use kerosene lamps for their lighting needs.
Villagers have 1-2 mobile, They take their mobile phone to nearby markets (2-4 km away) for charging or to buy lead-acid batteries.
Kerosene lamps very polluting, with toxic fumes coming out of it poor lighting tougher to study and strenuous for eyes.
Many of them have spent more money in mobile charging than the cost of the mobile phone
