I don't think it will catch on in America. Events and meetings here only ever seem to be postponed. I don't think I can recall a single instance in my life of a planned event being moved to an earlier time.

Hi Matt,

I was thinking that, too--never heard of a meeting scheduled for earlier than planned, at least not often enough to warrant a word. Is that something unique to Indian business culture? Or is it common in certain industries?
