FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. Why does the Sun Rise Two Hours Earlier in Arunachal Pradesh than Gujarat?

Ans: There is a time difference of two hours between Gujarat and Arunachal Pradesh. But, the time along the Standard Meridian of India passing through Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh is considered as the standard time in the whole country.

The latitudinal extent of India has direct influence on the duration of the day and night in the country. As a result, the sun rises two hours earlier in Arunachal Pradesh than Gujarat and the watches show the same time in both of the places.

Q2. How is the Location of India in Asia?

Ans: India is located in central Asia. Our country has such a fine strategic location due to the trans-Indian Ocean routes. The Indian Ocean connects the European countries with the countries of East Asia. The Deccan Peninsula helps India to connect with West Asia. It is because of this reason; this ocean is named the Indian Ocean.
