Hi Samyak,

  You don't have any mass scaling on to speed up the simulation and have a very small element size as well. I would expect this simulation to take a long time in explicit, remember in explicit your time is proportional to the characteristic length.

  I would recommend you to do something in static structural as peter suggests and the way some of the other he pointed out to have done.
