Day Light Saving

April 9, 2009

I simply hate it! This time the clocks will advance one hour from the 15th of this month.

Can someone elaborate how it helps save electricity in Pakistan? 😈

    Saving electricity through DST in Pakistan seems like a grand illusion to me 🙂

    This one hour advancement of clocks kicks off confusion in my mind as I always think it’s actually 9:00 AM instead of 10:00 😛

    I hate it for I’ll have to wake an hour earlier than routine and I know I won’t go to bed an hour earlier than routine due to my roommates late night tv addiction. To the decision won’t save that much electricity but will surely increase peoples’ frustration.

    I didn’t change my own clock & cell phone timing last year. Don’t intend to change as I get confuse w.r.t namaz timings particularly.

    Also while booking tickets or finalizing some event, I have to confirm always about , naya time or purana time. 🙂

    In my opinion our government lives in fools paradise. If it is so easy to save electricity in this way then shouldn`t our government advance clocks by 4-5 hours to get rid of load shading altogether?

    Aadil: I agree!

    BMK: I too don’t change my clocks except for the wrist watch that I often forget to wear 😛

    Yeah even the obituary in Urdu newspaper say that the funeral would be held at 10:00 (purana time)…

    That saving electricity slogan sounds very bogus. Last year when we were following daylight saving we were having the worst load shedding too. So how could it save electricity.
