GUDDA, India (CNN) -- In Gudda, a village with very little, residents are literally beaming. Just two years ago, villagers had never seen light after dark, unless it came from the moon. Then, solar light arrived and changed everything.
Children in Gudda stand on rooftops near a solar panel. Solar power first arrived two years ago.
1 of 3 "When the lanterns first arrived, the villagers asked, 'What is this?' " says Hanuman Ram, the local solar engineer. "I explained to them how it worked. Then slowly, as people saw it, they said, 'Wow, what a thing this is!' "
This is nice, it was a good idea, these people experienced modern technology.

That certainly makes us southern rednecks feel better because we've had electricity for decades. :D
