Next to our Bangalore office, there used to be a small tea shop selling tea, cookies, bread, newspapers, and so on. Some of my colleagues and many students from a neighboring college were regular customers. One day when passing by, I saw the owner had begun renovating the shop. There was hardly any space to stand inside, and it was extremely noisy and dusty. A few days later, I noticed that the shop had closed; it was simply too difficult to manage the renovation and keep the business running. Of course, the shop forfeited considerable revenue each day it was closed.
