Hi Kush,

The legacy .vtk file format you're using does not directly support time. 
In the example you mention (from file-formats.pdf), TIME_LATE is just a 
data array; it does not indicate time support. If you want to load time 
varying data into ParaView using the .vtk file format, you will need to 
load each time step in a separate file as described in the ParaView Guide.
