From today onwards Sri Lankan timezone is back to where it was 10 years back and that is +0530 GMT. Talking about changing the zone three times within a short span of 10 years is not gonna help us at all IMO. But I rather think adopting quickly to the new timezone will prove very useful. Everyone will agree with the fact that reverting back to +0530 won't make the sun rise 30 mins early. You will be aware that the prayers of Muslims are based on the movement of the sun. After the timezone change the prayer before dawn known as Fajr is somewhere around 04:48 which means we have to rise up at that time regardless of the timezone change. But the point is we rise up early as we normally do which is a real good thing and still we also have valubale 30 mins of time in our hands. Like the prayer times have to be shifted there was one other instance where I had to shift the time that we play Cricket in the evening. Of course if we start to play cricket at the time we are used to, we will lose half an hours coz it will become dark at the end. So much to calculate so much to think about. I personally didn't like about reverting back to +0530 but I seem to be enjoying it [Wink]
