Don't misteek this as Rahul Kaal although times sometimes look as such in India right now.
Rahu kaal is the most inauspicious 90 minute duration of a day according to Hindu religious calendar.
Believers never begin any activity, which may include significant as much as insignificant activities, during that patch of time.
They believe, any undertaking at those hours meets certain failure or it may even lead to unforeseen and unrelated disasters striking them.
The custom is so deeply entrenched in the psyche of the community, even the faith-fence-sitters avoid beginning important endeavors in that time window.
I wouldn't be surprised if "Atheists conferences" and Scientific/Secular/Communists' projects and non-Hindu persons too follow this rule!

Usage

The terrorists have attacked the police station but the Inspector saab won't start his jeep for another 17 minutes. You see it is still Rahu Kaal.
