Daylight Saving Time means to gain more hours of daylight in the afternoon in order to save electricity and use the natural source of energy and light, that is sunshine to do various tasks. Have you understood atleast a word of what I have said? Neutral

Hihi... Varun, those guys didn't understand what the topic itself is about, thus they didn't grasp anything concerning the picture. The short explanation I gave helped, I guess. Razz

If I'm not mistaken Daylight Saving Time was once implemented in Mauritius in 1982. However, it was later abandoned for reasons which I ignore. Can somebody shed some light on this?

www.timeanddate.com wrote:After years of going without daylight saving time, residents of Mauritius will turn the clock one hour forward at 2am (to UTC+5) on October 26, 2008. Mauritius will be five hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) during the daylight saving period until it turns the clock back one hour at 2am (to UTC+4) on March 29, 2009.

Mauritius' former Energy Minister Swalay Kasenally introduced daylight saving time in 1982 but it was discontinued. The former minister claimed that there was no information campaign prior to consultations with key stakeholders and community groups. At the time, the concept of daylight saving was considered "avant-garde" in Mauritius and ended partly due to political reasons.

Nonetheless, if the results of daylight saving time are successful and they bring benefits in terms of energy efficiency, the schedule will be implemented on a yearly basis. The amount of energy that can be saved from daylight saving time will be the key performance indicator used to measure the success of this initiative. The country’s Central Electricity Board will provide research on the outcome of the scheme.

The two main opposing groups are the BPO sector and religious organizations.

Sincerely, I think it is going to be very beneficial for the Mauritian economy and on a personal basis, I used to hate this implementation because I would have to wake up one hour early, European Champions League matches would always start 23:45 local time, etc. However, after a second thought, I don't think it'll be bad for me too because we don't really sleep for longer periods in the summer.

I got it... Europe makes use of daylight saving time from March to October where as we will start in October to end in March. So, does it mean that those football matches will start at 00:45? Damn it! Mad

Euh...In fact, I don't like him going to bed late for the fact that if 1 day he goes to bed after midnight, the day after the same thing repeats, the day after tomorrow, the same thing again... It goes on like this until I become red with anger. On top, during the day, he feels tired, sleepy and all when he has not gone to sleep on time. Twisted Evil

I'm being careful from now itself such that after marriage I don't have to beg him till late at night to go to bed... Razz

For the moment, daylight saving time has done no big difference in my life except from I feel that I'm eating later than usual, I'm going to bed and waking up earlier than before. Mad

On the contrary, it sounds awkwardly nice to see the sun still there uptil 19.30 or even 20.00 at my place. sunny
