Everybody's been bitching about the SAARC summit. The government is spending some 2.8 Billion, Colombo is (supposedly) under a draconian security plan, as a part of which a bunch of poor people kicked out from their homes and while their houses were demolished (more on that later). Not a great start for the SAARC.
Unnoticed in all this the cost of uncertainty. Just the last few days, I postponed at least three meetings. People just can't plan for things in the coming week, which means stuff gets canceled postponed or done at sub optimal levels.
More SAARC pun at Indi's.
