Today is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The phenomenon is called 'Summer Solstice'

On the day of the 'Summer Solstice', the sun's rays are perpendicular on the Tropic of Cancer.

In India Ujjain, Ranchi, Durgapur and Bardwan are close to the Tropic of Cancer and on the day of 'solar solstice' there will be no shadow of any object under the Sun in these locations.

Isn't the longest day when we put the clocks back for daylight savings? Its 25 hours long
