What is blue wire in light switch?

A standard 2-wire illumination circuit is shown in Figure 1. The brown cable is alive (also known as a permanent switch), which brings the active energy to the switch. The blue cable is known as a live switch and brings the energy to the light. The live switch is alive only when the switch is on (this is where it takes its name).
