Story of a Lazy Dog

... Master to his Dog -- " You will have to bark whenever you see some stranger " ... The Dog nodded first vertically (means yes normally) and then in a shrewd way, horizontally (means no normally) ... Dog is always prompt at food hours ...
Whenever we guys used to plan for somewhere or initiate some event, my friend, Pervez Iqbal used to say -- " Is kam ko kar liya jaye (Lets go on doing this work) ". The intent was clear. Suppose we had to watch some film, he used to say -- " Is film ko dekha jaye (Lets go on watching this movie) ". Usually watching movie means bringing some VCD to feed in Compu (which was supposed to be a tool which can do magic for our career). The intent of this guy was simple, let some person(other than him) bring the CD and he will have his cool position where he will sit and watch movie. ... And he usually succeeded ...
Many people think me as a very active person, who does not take rest for hours ... and ... well its enough Reetesh, don't go on. The only person in this world who knows truth is my father, he catches me always. He knows that if I keep staying in long queues at railway station for taking railway ticket, then the intent is not to behave like a responsible citizen, but the fact is that I must be chatting with some person. Pop, this is true, similarly, I like buses in Bangalore, because long time that it takes in traffic can be used to hear lot of music and give rest to your soul from utilizing those time for some "sensual" work. The steps are, go get the bus, get loaded in it, and then take rest, after that come to the real world of workaholic snails. Taking rest and pretending that you are working hard is an art. For example, if some task is given to you in company to accomplish in given span of time, your statement should always be -- "I will 'try' my best to complete it. Don't know if some issue comes on surface".
In fact Laziness is an art and it should be practised with zeal. I know some of my friends who got very good job at different companies, who did not run after academic tantrums, never did projects at time and are enjoying their work (means taking rest). In fact I found some people who are known for their merit in "society", who hold key position at companies, are called as innovators of their field, but if closely watched, they have got their work done by people, largely unkown. You will find that Laziness becomes a skill also.

  4. "Taking rest and pretending that you are working hard is an art..."

    This sentence looks closer to my attitude.I always push myself to relax after completing a small task,which any lazy guy like me takes a long time to complete...
