    // object
    time_t current_time;
  
    // pointer
    struct tm* ptime;
  
    // use time functin
    time(&current_time);
  
    // gets the current-time
    ptime = gmtime(&current_time);
  
    // print the current time
    printf("Current time:\n");
  
    printf("Beijing ( China ):%2d:%02d:%02d\n",
           (ptime->tm_hour + CST) % 24, ptime->tm_min, ptime->tm_sec);
  
    printf("Delhi ( India ):%2d:%02d:%02d\n",
           (ptime->tm_hour + IND) % 24, ptime->tm_min, ptime->tm_sec);
    return 0;
