I would like to point out that "midday" may or may not be exactly 12 Noon
Standard Time at a given place. We need to know the sunrise and sunset for
the place and calculate the daylight duration, half of which is then to be
added to the sunrise time to arrive at the midday time. For instance, the
sunrise for Bengaluru is 6:09 AM IST and sunset is 6:22 PM tomorrow. The
daylight duration would be the time period between sunrise and sunset,
which in this case is 12 hours 13 minutes. Half of this is 6 hours 6.5
minutes. Adding 6 hours 6.5 minutes to the sunrise time 6:09 AM gives us
12:15:30 PM as the  midday time. Obviously, this time could change from one
date to another, depending on the sunrise and sunset times at the place on
the given date.
