        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1
            = OffsetDateTime
                  .parse(
                      "2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Prints dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
  
        // Subtracts the number of months
        System.out.println("Date1 after adding months: "
                           + date1.plusMonths(-120));
