The second blackout in two days has left more than 600 million people — about half of India’s population of 1.2 billion — without power across the Indian subcontinent.

The outage — one of the world’s biggest-ever blackouts — stopped hundreds of trains in their tracks, darkened traffic lights, shuttered the Delhi Metro and left everyone from the police to water utilities to private businesses and citizens without electricity, according to the New York Times.
