The world is divided into 24 time zones (sort of), with hourly divisions between each zone, which makes it relatively easy to figure out the time in another country. Some countries and/or cities operate in a time zone out of sync with this system, with their clocks shifted + or - 30 mins, 45 mins, 15 mins, etc from the nearest time zone boundary. For example:
Tehran, Iran is +3h30m from GMT, or -30 min from Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Kabul, Afghanistan is +4h30m from GMT, or +30 min from UAE.
India and Sri Lanka are +5h30m from GMT, or +1h30m from UAE.
Kathmandu, Nepal is +5h45m(!) from GMT, or +1h45m from UAE.
Yangon, Burma is +6h30m from GMT, or +2h30m from UAE.
Darwin, Australia is +9h30m from GMT, or +5h30m from UAE. Check, if summer time applies in Darwin. Note that most of the rest of Australia operates normally.
