Arthur C Clarke fights Buddhist monks over Daylight Savings Time


This BBC article about Sri Lanka’s proposed adoption of Daylight Savings Time has much to recommend it: Buddhist monks battling Arthur C Clarke over the pluses and minuses thereof, and Clarke himself, sporting a “I invented the satellite and all I got was this lousy t-shirt” t-shirt.

Having made Sri Lanka his home for the past 50 years, he now finds himself embroiled in a clock fight.

He has written to newspapers here saying it is foolish to return to a time zone half an hour out of step with GMT.
