HI Suma,
To calculate the running time you can take the TimeSpan and get the Difference from the current date and the input date and from the Timespan you can get the Date and time difference of the Time Sapan properties.

For eg

private void calculateTime()
DateTime dt1 = DateTime.Now;
DateTime dt2 = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-7);
TimeSpan ts = dt1.Subtract(dt2);
int totalsec = ts.Days;
Response.Write(ts.Days +" Days");
Response.Write(" " + ts.Hours+" Hours");
Response.Write(" " + ts.Minutes+" Minutes ago");
catch (Exception ex)

Please "Mark As Answer " if this post help you.
