What is time?

If you're in Dhaka and you don't have the magical powers to take the wrong side of the road/shut down traffic movement, should the concept of time apply to you? Because on any random day, a 20-minute commute might take 120. The wise folks who recommend walking need to be reminded that on certain roads, functional footpaths don't exist [because reconstruction/development]. Let's not even get into the rampant air pollution that's going to wreak havoc on your lungs and heart.

Coming back to time – it should be declared an obsolete concept for normie Dhakaites, so that when your teacher or boss asks you why you were not on time, you can look them in the eye and say, “Am I? What is this time you speak of?”
