Another timer script with a riddle

Here is another script by TM Shruti from Mumbai for the role of a timer with a riddle. Just like before, it’s humorous, thought provoking and manage to include audience engagement. Have a read.

Here’s a funny riddle for you. Why do security guards feel exhausted and weary guarding the Big Ben clock tower?

Ans. – Because they are all working around the clock.

Watching time is clearly an effortful task. Since I have been skipping my gym for few months now, I am playing the role of a Timer today to compensate.

As a timer, my role is to let the speakers know their time limits while they are on stage.

For the prepared speech section, the time allotted is 5 to 7 minutes. At 5 minutes I will flash the green card, at 6 the yellow and at 7 the red card.

For the Table Topic session the time allotted is 1 to 2 minutes. At 1 minute, I will flash the green card, at 1.5 the yellow and at 2 the red card.

And for the speech evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, at 2.5 the yellow and at 3 minutes the red card.

There is a grace period of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speech.

I hope all the speakers strive to be within their allotted time limit. I will be back with my report towards the end of the meeting.

Thank You

Thank you TM Shruti for this wonderful script.
