Daily Diary (DD) - Day 32 of 2023

1917hrs:

Day 241 at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square - Dadyaal.

0622hrs

Attendance = 100%
Punctuality = 68%
164 days on time or early of 241
Punctuality surplus = 39 minutes 
Punctuality Consistency Status = 6 days 

Note: 144hrs completed at Square this morning, at precisely 0805hrs. Our punctuality deficit has reverted back to a surplus once again. It took 6 days of round the clock presence to do so, otherwise we were spiralling downwards in our punctuality performance. our punctuality remains at 68% though, down from an all time high of 69%. It could still take over a week of further consistency (currently 6 days) to hit 70%, which is a bare minimum for any public activist.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 31 of 2023

1748hrs:

Day 240 at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square - Dadyaal.

0651hrs

Attendance = 100%
Punctuality = 68%
163 days on time or early of 240
Punctuality deficit = 59 minutes 
Punctuality Consistency Status = 5 days 

Note: 120hrs completed at Square this morning, at precisely 0805hrs. A welcome contrast in the weather today. The sun is almost always welcome (For about 320 days of 365 in a year to be precise, while 45 days of rain sprinkled throughout the year is necessary too).

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 30 of 2023

1037hrs:

Day 239 at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square - Dadyaal.

0744hrs

Attendance = 100%
Punctuality = 68%
162 days on time or early of 239
Punctuality deficit = 128 minutes 
Punctuality Consistency Status = 4 days 

Note: 96hrs completed at Square this morning, at precisely 0805hrs. It rained ferociously and incessantly since yesterday evening. Contingencies were activated but it was still a challenge.

I did get up earlier than 0744hrs but the phone battery was dead. Rain was lashing down and it took time to reactivate.

....

I will endeavour to begin writing down my thoughts publicly, on a more regular basis. Of course I do write daily and copiously but as the level of interaction with my co-citizens is intensifying and we have reached a critical stage of our journey, our people need to be kept informed in real time of developments as they emerge.

There remains misunderstanding over the critical importance of population census data in 21st century governance. We are making inroads though, via our Sunday 'Legal Experts Q & A' Twitter Space @jkapublicagency.

I think it is high time that I repeat the importance, which I have been highlighting gradually since 2012.

160 days on time or early of 237

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 26 of 2023

1725hrs:

Day 235 at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square - Dadyaal.

0805hrs

Attendance = 100%
Punctuality = 67%
158 days on time or early of 235
Punctuality deficit = 327 minutes 
Punctuality Consistency Status = -5 days

Note: We still haven't broken this belated spell but we did decide yesterday to stay put in the Square 24/7 as from today. We will subtract 60 minutes from the punctuality deficit every day by presuming - for the record - that we are beginning every day at the Square at 0700hrs. Let's see what each coming day delivers.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 25 of 2023

2357hrs:

Day 234 at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square - Dadyaal.

0921hrs

Attendance = 100%

Punctuality = 68%

158 days on time or early of 234

Punctuality deficit = 322 minutes 

Punctuality Consistency Status = -4 days

Note: When you drift away from your punctuality target for 4 days in a row, you know it is a slippery slope. Can we redeem ourselves from this point onwards?

1221hrs:

Day 233 at Maqbool Bhat Shaheed Square - Dadyaal.

0826hrs

Attendance = 100%
Punctuality = 68%
158 days on time or early of 233
Punctuality deficit = 241 minutes 
Punctuality Consistency Status = -3 days

Note: We've now been late for 3 days in a row, hence the -3 denoted in the last row viz. Punctuality Consistency Status. The positive aspect is that the time of arrival is gradually making its way back to the 0800hrs watershed.

Note: We seem to be spiralling downwards in our pursuit of punctuality. Something needs to be done to overturn this impending disaster.
