define('TIMEZONE', 'Africa/Harare');

$targetDate = new DateTime('2015-11-24 11:57:00');
$runningDate = new DateTime('2015-11-24 12:08:00');
$time = new DateTime();

$remaining = $targetDate->diff(new DateTime());

// not done
if( $time < $targetDate )
echo $remaining->format('%a D - %H:%I:%S');   //--> 86 D - 19:44:24

// done
elseif($targetDate < $runningDate )
print "The time has been reached show this messagt till runningdate is reached";
elseif($time > $runningDate )
print "";
