It is common knowledge that some security guards have cultivated the habit of taking a nap while on their feet at their posts.
Government top brass are a tribe called upon to work under heavy pressure and they would welcome any ‘trick’ that would enable them to relax and catch a shut-eye at least in snatches while at work.
Meanwhile, a smart Alec says even the busiest person can relax and enjoy a nap while on duty if he has a pre-conceived notion about how to handle a given situation.
Incidentally, a higher-up of the Maithri regime seems to have mastered the ‘trick’ of catching a shut-eye while in the thick of a serious discussion.
The other day, the higher-up of the regime was at a discussion with a delegation of small tea holders. Their main grievance was that they were finding it difficult to sell their green leaf at the guaranteed price of Rs.85 a kilo. When the discussion was proceeding, the higher-up who was in the chair was seen dozing off.
He suddenly woke up and announced that he would appoint a committee to look into the matter and called it a day.
