Eastern India (27 north as what you said) is relatively hot because summer's sun angle can up to 86°.
So late sunsets in such "hot" places (same like places such as Brisbane, Tokyo, Singapore, Jakarta, and other tropics and low subtropics) just exhausting, and waste the use of air conditioning, in my opinion.

But do some of those you really need air conditioning? Tokyo or Brisbane you don't need it though if you can handle 27C room temperature and a dehumidifying fan.

You need a.c. in Tokyo. My brother went there last August and he said that the weather is horrible. Worse than the tropics such as Jakarta, Singapore, etc. I checked the data for August 2013 and found that the lowest high was 29c and average high was about 32-33c. It goes above 35 like once a week. On one of those days, August 11, the "low" was 31c.

I always wondered why Nepal was 5 hours 45 ahead of GMT and not 5h30 or 6h, but this link explains it:

Quote:
Nepal was initially 10 minutes ahead of India when India set their time using the longitude that passed through Calcutta. Later they switched to Hyderabad, which is further west. So this meant we were an extra five minutes ahead of them [...] We calculate time using the longitude of the mountain Gauri Shankar, which is almost the centre of Nepal
What's the deal with Nepal's weird time zone? | Lex Marks the SpotLex Marks the Spot

Hmm... I'll be there in June where it's still comfortable. But with the noticeable season lag, August will be the hottest. Interesting.

Doesn't have a signifcant affect in winter but in summer sunrise is quite a bit later than it would normally be at 55North. Almost 5am instead of 3am.

I think we have the same sunrise times as eastern america in the summer and the same sunset times as eastern america in the winter.
Korea follows same time zone as Japan does but both they don't observe daylight saving time.

Mexico city earliest sunrise is on Saturday before 1st sunday in April. It's because located on 19°N (high enough for equation of time effect already less significant than latitude, so in that kind of latitude, sunrise theoritically go earlier and earlier from about January to June) and has DST (still low enough of latitude) So sunrise in late winter is earlier than in midsummer.

Here's a time zone irony: for as long as Ireland has been an independent country (going on 100 years now) it has always used a time zone based on London time, yet for most of the last few decades of British rule when it was actually governed from London it had its own time zone based on Dublin time, which was 25 minutes behind GMT.
