Clock time

Five or ten minute increments before or after the hour or quarter past or half past or a quarter to positions are generally seen to be enough to describe time in Gujarati, although with digital clocks, you may use exact minutes.

Pona baar MA paanch is five minutes to a quarter to 12 with the MA suggesting before and paanch meaning 5 minutes, so this phrase says 5 minutes to a quarter to twelve.

Addhi ne paanch is five minutes past 2.30 with the NE suggesting AND, and the paanch meaning five minutes so this means five minutes past two thirty.

Dodh ne paanch is five minutes past 1.30 with the NE suggesting AND, and the paanch meaning five minutes so this means five minutes past one thirty.

1.05 
Ek ne paanch-Lit: one and five
1.10 
Savaa ma paanch-lit: five minutes before a quarter past one
1.15 
Savaa ma : quarter past one
2.20 
Savaa be ne paanch-Five minutes after a quarter past two
3.25 
Saara tran ma paanch-Five minutes to half past three
