Its really tough to find the problem of Electricity where is it true that Maharashtra state have lack of electricity / power distribution or political people are playing their roles by cutting down the number of hours in Summer season.
Its really not good to cut more half hour rather than the regular time schedule of electricity.
Your question was load shading in summer then i think it is somewhat right as we should think about nature to. All we are living in luxurious life and forgetting the nature day by day. Still i feel the load shading should be for selected places and there should be exceptions like hospitals and student hostels.
After some period the prices will go so high that we have to get back to traditional ways of light (E.g. lantern )
