Crises Only at Eleventh Hour

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Re­call the hoo-haa on Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Ya­muna fes­ti­val. Now take the lat­est brouhaha on the IPL and wa­ter short­age. Is wak­ing up at the eleventh hour a de­lib­er­ate ploy for max­i­mum TRPs, ef­fect and dam­age? The Ya­muna fes­ti­val was known for months. Why was the is­sue not set­tled right at the be­gin­ning? Did the wa­ter short­age in Ma­ha­rash­tra come just be­fore the IPL? The log­i­cal stand would have been to can­cel the IPL or shift it else­where. Maybe the courts must throw out pe­ti­tions brought at the last minute with a fine levied on such par­ties.
