Candle Lit

The dark side of marriage: The bridegroom holds a candle next to his bride during a wedding ceremony due to blackouts in Padang, West Sumatra, last Sunday. State power company PT PLN said the blackouts, which were also felt in the neighboring provinces of Riau and Jambi, were inevitable because several turbines at its power plants were damaged.
