Indian Standard Time
Indian Standard Time is the official name of IST, which is the abbreviation for Indian Stretchable Time. IST is used to determine when will an event occur in India. It involves a lot of knowledge of Fuzzy logic and elasticity, as IST is known to be very elastic in the hands of Indians. IST is also written as GMT+5:30, which means that the event for which the time is written may start as much as five-and-half hours late. This assumes that people following GMT are punctual. In India, the railway do not follow the IST so they are always late. Most of the trains are late by many hours. You can clearly feel the meaning of IST if you have to wait in a railway station.
