    Hi Huma,
    Here in US they would change the time during the Halloween time, in Oct. But President Bush has signed last year that the saving time should end in the 1st sunday of November.
    You are great, yaar. you think of work, but for me, 1 hour extra means 1 hour extra sleep:redface:

    Hi Aruna,
    They say that by this way they can save energy and so on.
    This practice is very irritating. Before you get adjusted to one time, the time changes.
    during the saving time starts that itself is a disaster--1 hour rest is lost and are more prone to accidents on the roads, etc.
    When you do have to change the time?

    Hi dear ladies

    The time had changed at 02:00 AM Sunday - so we are already almost a day behind our folks in India...
    At least this change gives a longer time window to be calling our people back in India :redface:

    Cheers!
    Charu..

    Hi Sriniketan,
    Thank you for reminding the time change. When we call my son at Minneapolis, we call him only after making sure the US time.
    Love,
    Pushpavalli
