You can try calculated field and CASE statement for instance 

CASE 

WHEN Datediff(hour, [@field:Date], GetUTCDate()) <24 THEN CAST(Datediff(hh, [@field:Date], GetDate()) % 24 AS varchar) + 'hrs' +   CAST(Datediff(mi, [@field:Date], GetDate()) % 60 AS varchar) + 'mins'

ELSE CAST(Datediff(dd, [@field:Date], GetDate()) AS varchar) + 'days' + CAST(Datediff(hh, [@field:Date], GetDate()) % 24 AS varchar) + 'hrs' +   CAST(Datediff(mi, [@field:Date], GetDate()) % 60 AS varchar) + 'mins'

END

HI MayMusic,
Thanx for your answer... its working but there is some issue...  FYI..my current date time of the pc is 06-20-2018 11:22 AM (I have also attached screenshot)

- Record created on 06/20/2018 00:42:12   is displayiing (-2hrs-3mins)
- Record created on 06/19/2018 21:52:49 is displaying (1hrs47mins )
- Record created on 06/19/2018 05:18:47 is displaying (0days17hrs21mins)

so my query is why it is displaying result in - value for record created today and can we discard 0 days if record is for today and if its older than today then we need to display value in days only not require hrs and min...

Hi MayMusic,

We got this issue fixed.. I m just updating here so it can be helpful for someone else too...

To implement this solution you need a Timestamp Data Type field and Calculated fields.

Let us say that the name of the Timestamp Data Type field is "Timestamp".

*****
Than Calculated field 1 will be looked like the following:

CASE
WHEN GetDate()>[@field:Timestamp]

THEN 
GetDate()-[@field:Timestamp]

ELSE [@field:Timestamp]-GetDate()
END

*****

And Calculated field 2 will be:

CASE
WHEN DatePart(day,[@calcfield:1]) = 1

THEN 
Convert(nvarchar, DatePart(hour,[@calcfield:1]))+':'
+Convert(nvarchar, DatePart(minute,[@calcfield:1]))+' hours ago'

ELSE Convert(nvarchar, DatePart(day,[@calcfield:1]))+' days ago'
END

*****

Also, if you would like, you can have all of this code in one Calculated field:

CASE
WHEN DatePart(day,
CASE
WHEN GetDate()>[@field:Timestamp]

THEN 
GetDate()-[@field:Timestamp]

ELSE [@field:Timestamp]-GetDate()
END) = 1

THEN 
Convert(nvarchar, DatePart(hour,
CASE
WHEN GetDate()>[@field:Timestamp]

THEN 
GetDate()-[@field:Timestamp]


ELSE [@field:Timestamp]-GetDate()
END))+':'
+Convert(nvarchar, DatePart(minute,
CASE
WHEN GetDate()>[@field:Timestamp]

THEN 
GetDate()-[@field:Timestamp]

ELSE [@field:Timestamp]-GetDate()
END))+' ago' 

ELSE Convert(nvarchar, DatePart(day,
CASE
WHEN GetDate()>[@field:Timestamp]

THEN 
GetDate()-[@field:Timestamp]

ELSE [@field:Timestamp]-GetDate()
END))+' days ago'
END
