      Hello Mr Vijay,

      Bijli Bachao is a private entity. The competition is conducted by Ministry of Power and Bureau or Energy Efficiency. Would suggest you to contact them.

    One of the ideas for painting that comes to my mind is depicting a well lit and well ventilated room with curtains open and children playing/studying enthusiastically/happily! Just a thought! Please feel free to add more ideas!

      Great Idea. I think a good look at the website can give some ideas on what can be done. Bureau’s website http://www.beeindia.in also has pictures of last year’s winners. Another idea that I can think of is of an imaginary world where everything runs on solar, wind or water (a setup of a farm can be ideal).
