Having travelled across India, I have noticed how different the time is in different parts of the country. It is quite possible to visit a city, such as Delhi, but experience it on a different time scale than if you were visiting the same city, such as Chennai or Mumbai. I’ve found this to be true of many cities around the world. If you are traveling to another country, try to learn how the locals live and adjust your time accordingly. This can be especially important when travelling by plane.
Assam tea gardens
Located in the north-east section of India, Assam is a region surrounded by majestic Himalayas and beautiful valleys. It is also the home to the world’s best-loved black Assam teas.
Its tropical climate gives Assam tea gardens the ideal conditions for manufacturing tea. The Assam Tea Industry has grown from a small scale to become a major industry today. It has 600 tea estates and produces approximately 1.5 million pounds of tea per year. The Assam Tea Gardens contribute a huge amount of the state’s economic value.
Assam tea gardens are known for their lush green landscapes and scenic spots. They offer employment to both women and men of all ages.
However, the Assam tea garden community is vulnerable and has limited access to healthcare. Most estates lack sanitation facilities and poor drinking water. The area also faces the risk of catching diseases such as diarrhoea and jaundice.
Assam tea gardens produce the finest tea. The tea has a rich flavour and is also known for its antioxidant properties. It is said to fight cardiovascular diseases, strengthen blood vessels and promote metabolism.
Assam tea has a strong hold on the domestic market of India. In fact, 80% of the country’s tea exports come from Assam.
Daylight saving time
Unlike most countries, India does not observe Daylight saving time. However, it has been experimenting with one-time clock advancement. Changing the time zone would reduce energy consumption and help the country fight climate change.
This is one of the reasons why the Indian government recently announced that it will move to a single time zone. The IST (Indian Standard Time) is now five and a half hours ahead of UTC. It’s a small improvement, but it could save the country a few billion units of electricity each year.
The practice of setting clocks an hour ahead of UTC in the spring and fall is known as Daylight saving time. It’s practiced in 70 countries.
The reason behind this is that the time of day changes in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The sun sets early in the northeastern part of India and rises earlier in the western part. In the winter, this means a loss of daylight hours.
Changing the IST to one that’s five and a half hours ahead of UTC could help the country reduce its carbon footprint, boost its resoluteness to fight climate change and lower its peak electricity load by 17 to 18 percent Located in the northeastern part of India, Assam is home to the ‘Seven Sister States’. Each state has a unique set of time differences. The main difference between Assam and the rest of India is that the sun rises earlier in Assam than in the rest of the country. This leads to shorter days and less daylight hours. This, in turn, impacts productivity and electricity consumption.
