Daylight savings for the whole world doesn't make sense to me. What good would it do for countries like India? Are you saying that people will be relieved from their office earlier? Of course not, offices will adapt their timings and everything would be the same again, or people would be overworked. It makes sense only for countries closer. to the poles, where the daylight hours are actually drastically altered in different seasons.

Rightly pointed out, Tanthetha. It doesn't make sense in India kind of countries due to 2 reasons. .1. Advancing the clock increases working hours. .2. No need of such saving as we have almost same number of day and night hours. Apart from that: This was proposed to mitigate energy crisis to avoid dependency on erstwhile OPEC. Now OPEC also decentralised and doesn't have erstwhile hold.
No mam, basically in India we need this system to be followed which will change our human culture in long run n though there are many advantages of daylight saving . It would be very helpful in countries like India for enhancing the youth towards work and in return they’ll get a extra tym for there extra activities
Mam, can you please make a video about origin of languages and its role in the development of the human kind?
Definitely ma'am because it brings many advantages over some disadvantages. In a big latitudinal spread country like India need Day Light Saving in two ways 1. Advancing/deferring clocks seasonally. 2.Making at least 3 time zones. Even for energy saving one related institute also advocated to immediate shift to new time zone in eastern india. Thanks ma'am

Even today India's so many informal businesses, agri labourers adjust ourselves seasonwise since many centuries.
