6 Productive Things To Do When You Are Totally Bored In Office

Everybody feel bored at some point of time in office. Especially, when are doing some boring stuff like data entry, reading case studies, technical troubleshooting, staring at pie-charts and excel sheets, deleting spam emails, receiving calls from tele-marketers, listening to friend's party story, etc.

Today I was also feeling terribly bored and I thought of writing this post. So, here are 6 tips to be productive when totally bored in office:

1. Take a walk: Sitting can be bad for health, especially when you get anchored at 9 am sharp till lunch and then lunch till you leave office. That's bad for health. So, do not work so hard. Take time off and loiter around the vicinity of your office or just visit your colleagues in other end of the floor.

2. Pin It: All of you might know about Pinterest. Login and browse interesting stuff there. Pin all stuff you love and you might feel good pinning and pinning.

3. Call your Mom: Just dial her number and say hi, say "I wish I was n…

Is Vadapao Indian Burger?

Image
Everytime, I exit Kurla Station in Mumbai, I can see a Vadapao stall just at the last step of the staircase. People munching Vadapao with much interest. Sometime, I also pack two of them and sometimes four of them (one of my colleagues also loves to have them). The best thing about that Vadapao stall is you get the hot vada. Some sauce and sliced pieces of cabbage. It can be rightly called Indian Burger.

So, I was little jobless in office today and thought of researching about Vadapao and found this "The first Vada pav was first sold in Thane, near Mumbai around 1972-1974. The vendor was Mr Babban who invented the same he became so popular in Thane his Vada Pav was known as " Babban Vada Pav" . He is no longer living but his Vada Pav is still sold by his daughter near Charai, Thane west." (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vada_pav)

Do have Vadapao, when you come to Mumbai.

Mary Kom (Film): Why it is a Must See Movie?

Image
Many of you might know how Omung Kumar thought of making the film, Mary Kom. In one of the shows on television, recently, he confessed that sometime back when he was asked about Mary Kom, he was clueless. He instantly Google(d) Mary Kom, and was surprised to see her credentials: five-time World Amateur Boxing Champion and so many medals and participation in National and International Boxing events. Thus, he decided to make the film. Read Mary's Unbreakable : An Autobiography

I see the film as an documentary, as it captures the struggles and achievement of Olympian Mary Kom. In fact, the movie has a lot of importance from the sociological point of view; the movie has the power to communicate the message to our society, which is still, I feel, is a male-dominated and where women are restricted to doing household chores.  Mary Kom is an embodiment of a versatile lady. And, she has proven how challenges like poverty, geographical backwardness among others gets erased when one has a …

Image
Is everyone creative? Many might say, "No". But there's has been instances (Research) wherein it has been provedn that one can build one's creativity.

Well, read the review below, and you might also say "Yes" (if you had "No" type thought)
Last week I spent a lot of time wondering in a big book store in Bombay.Finally, I sat to read a book, Unleashing Creativity and Innovation by Madan Birla, a renowned author who worked with Fedex for 20 years. He has also authored another bestselling book, FedEx Delivers.
For me reading the book was really motivating. It changed my perspective on how I think at my job role.
As I started reading Unleashing Creativity and Innovation, I got fascinated by the language used in the book: crisp and easily comprehensible. Though, the book was listed on Management section at the book store, this book is for anyone interested in unleashing creativity and innovation. Or in other words, this book is a must-read for very p…

Who's Your Favourite Teacher?

5th September it is today. Teacher Day.

I remember D. Dwivedi, my Accountancy teacher, who praised me for every work of mine. He stood for positive reinforcement. He truly appreciated my academic work. He would invite me to his home and ask to coach (basic computer skills) his son. Over a period of time, I performed well on his subject and also took responsibility for my learning on his subject. He was in fact, everyone's favourite-he wouldn't compromise in awarding full marks during unit tests. :)

Another teacher of mine, R G Maskey, a brilliant English teacher. He would appreciate my academic work, encouraged my poetry writings and would provide me bunch of Hindu newspapers and ask me to read editorials. Most students in the class would hate him because they would feel bored hearing stories from him.

With so much of care and guidance from both the teachers. They became my favourite. I had become one their favourite students and a better learner too.

After my story, it your …
