custom city timezones
This is the best I can do:
I would like to change LA to Santa Clara, London to Cambridge and Kolkata to Bangalore.
Is there anyway to accomplish this?
Basically you just pick one that's in the same zone as you are. I normally go with Chicago even though I'm no where near Chicago. It's in the Central Time Zone and that's really all that matters.
Sorry, I did not explain myself well.
The timezones are correct, I want to change the city name.
example: we have an office in Bangalore India. It has the same timezone as Kolkatta. But I cannot set the timezone to Bangalore, only Kolkatta. Which is fine for the most part, but I prefer if it said Bangalore.

You have not given enough details like what distro you are using. What Desktop environment, or Window Manager, (which is what I use mostly. Like my screenshot shows. JWM).

The little horizontal info bar in my screenshot is conky. It should be easy to find a canned setup that you can tweak for what you want.
Google is my friend when I needed yweather in JWM. It will be your friend for conky and different clock timezones.I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

If you have the gnome panel you can click on the time/calendar
expand locations > edit > +Add > location name > type your city
Santa Clara, Cambridge and Bangalore all show up and you get the weather info
as well: condition, temp, wind, sunrise and sunset times.
Thanks, but I am using opensuse and kde.
I tried looking for a weather plasmoid but could not find anything suitable.
Is it possible for you to fill the following table ?
+/- Local +/- UTC LA Santa Clara London Cambridge Kolkata Bangalore For example LA -10 from local -8 from UTC
Santa Clara UTC -8
Cambridge UTC 0
Bangalore UTC +5:30
You can work out your local difference, taking in consideration Summer Daylight Savings Time is UTC +1
