time 2

July 9, 2016

Nyango: Past time or time in a history is called nyango. It somehow happens to be a time that catches many people still sleeping. They mostly asked from the others or consult their watches to find out when is it in the day. For this reason, Nyango is always a missed time but confirmed later in the day.

diceng/dieceng: Transitively, this is mid day 12:00pm. Remember that modern time is measured using clocks, watch on our wrists, phones etc. Traditionally, time was measured by shadow. When shadow aligned to us, we become in the middle of the the sun, it is also a time you are able to see sun a full length, colour, strength etc. It is also however a time people need to rush work because things could get darker, emergencies could come in leaving an finished work extending work to future days. Bad for the society hence let's beat the sun.

otieno: Do you know that the sun have stripes in the afternoon? It is because of its rays and changes in direction and distance of its rays stretches pointing towards or away from us. It looks as though a crushed object and objects powering out of it elusively.

Obwora: When the sun is going down, you do not see it especially when you are living on the eastern side of a undulation. You only see the rays coming out of it hence we call that Obwore. The funny thing though is it happen everyday of the year excluding cloudy days.

Wuor: We have nothing but rather have fear and be mindful of the beasts of the night. Remember that Beasts are things that eats, killed, threatens, invades etc a home people, villages etc. Owuor things are lions, hyena, snakes etc.

P.S: There are things that do not add up for me with modern time based locations, size of Earth, distances on earth from one country to the other etc. What do we measure on the clock that exists on earth, why is it important that the differences between those time are respected. Where do they come from. Take bottom south, top North, West and North does not add up. Actually what is time itself in our daily lives and things around us?
