This weekend when DST changes came into effect, I was thinking this( exactly when the time was set behind by an hr).
Would DST be accepted in India at all? Well, it may sound funny.
In Chennai, some parties may protest against it, some may plan for a hunger strike.
All the “Raaghu Kaalam”, “Yema Gandam” “Nalla neram”, “Ketta neram” etc will go for a toss.
The panjamgam has to be re-written. Pattali makkal katchi and Hindu munnani may claim that this is illegal and plan for a dharna.
Famous astrologers like “Mei Meiyappans” will start delivering lengthy lectures in prime slots to boost the TRP of some channels.
Congress party may get into another scam by crediting the MP’s salary twice during midnight and blaming the re-clock.
So many clock towers across the state would be attended to during mid night!
Multiplexes may screen a special show during the DST time change and charge double the price!!
Jokes apart, I am amazed how the Developed nations cope with this without making a big fuss of it.
It only reminds me of the saying “In the game of chess, sometimes you have to make a move backward to move forward, similarly in life !!”
They don’t mind going behind another hour to make life n work easy. Its time we too accept some logical changes and get ahead in life.
