Days are shorter or longer in certain seasons, maybe, by an hour or so. It is His highness, the sun who decides when it should be shorter and when it should be longer.Â Whether it is longer or shorter, it does not cause any inconvenience in a country like India, except on rainy days. At the most, the power consumption could be slightly less or more, depending on the length of days!
But in Vancouver, Canada [there may be other places as well], the nature abides by this rule strictly and sincerely. The sun, here, is a late comer during winter. At 8.00 AM His Highness appears at the distant horizon and sends a flash of light, not powerful enough to send darkness bag and baggage. By 4.00 AM, it is what they call bright and sunny but donâ€™t be carried away; you will soon be reminded of the immortal line: â€œThe sunset and the evening sky!â€
Anyway, you cannot accuse His Highness of any partiality. Come summer, His Highness plays a long innings in Vancouver commencing from 4.30 AM to 9.00 PM!
