    In suburban Mangalore I have seen such high tension cables twirled, twinned criss cross and suspended on weak concrete poles and very precariously close to house verandah/terraces of building structures. A scary example is that of Urwa Stores near TATA Ginger Office within the Ashok Nagar jurisdiction. If my memory serves me right, not a long time ago, a small child got electrocuted when he put his hand out of his room window. In Bombay we have underground rectifier units to avoid such catastrophe. Mangalore authorities should follow suit and go in line with Bombay system.

    No Safety Wall built on the Terrace. Indian Authorities should bring some changes in their approval system. or else it is a must to change old staff and to replace them with New Young Youths with proper education on Safety.

    I saw in India especially in Mangalore udupi near to the house these wires pass by! For what?

    How much dangerous it is! Why ministry of electricity cannot put insulation cover on it? why so careless?whom to tell who will listen.? I understand putting cable underneath is not possible in India as in India every now and then they are digging the road sides. After Life is lost crying no use at all!
    Few years back husband and wife died due to electrocution while plucking gulf countries you will never see any live or any type of wires in open air.we should learn from these gulf countries.
    Anyway RIP children
    May your soul rest in peace

    Owners of the houses should take care about covering the wire.Already the govt is planning for underground wires. In Bengaluru it is sarted. It may be delayed now .Even live wires passed through plantations which is dangerous ..Sad two kids lost their lives .Condolences to the family.

    Most of the electric wires in Mumbai are underground. Please dont compare with half information in hand.....most of the gulf laborers think great about gulf countries since they have never seen other parts of India or the world for that matter. Every county has their own share of Pros and Cons......please dont compare.

    Boss read before commenting okay
    John mentioned udupi Mangalore
    I know John he traveled almost half of the world
    He is worried about the lost life
    Not half minded or half information.okay
    You better visit Mangalore very close to the roof of house or building these cables pass through
    And when heavy wind rain strucks these will come down risking human and animal life
    Haven't you seen how many birds are dying due to this Indian technology of cables
