Vantage point

Sunday, December 08, 2002

The sun sets at 5:30 p.m. and it's pitch dark by quarter to six. As I sit writing this at 6:15 p.m, I wonder if it would not be sensible for India to adopt the concept of daylight saving time during winter, and divide the country into at least 2 timezones. Imagine how it would be for someone in Nagaland? Dark at 4 p.m, I am sure.

Now if only we could convey this to the Members of Parliament. Hahh, fat chance, considering how they love to adjourn the LS for some reason or other. These folks keep spending so much taxpayers' money for meeting every few months and rush to the well for some adjournment motion or the others, its almost like stealing

So is India a democratic country or a kleptocratic country?
