The Burpy Blues!

The big boss seemed to be exuding benevolence of the highest order as he took in his company team members seated in front of him in the conference room. He often prided himself in knowing every member of his team on first name basis, and always listened to their views or problems in a very friendly way. Recently he initiated an office procedure to improve the overall quality of performance and operations. True to his nature, before implementing this procedure he wanted to know how everyone felt about it. He wanted free and frank opinions and also meaningful suggestions. So he called for this particular meeting. Although I was the latest addition to the team I had already gathered useful bits of information about my new boss. Again, true as always to his nature he never wanted to make it a predictable affair with members standing up and speaking in a monotonous serial order—one by one row wise. Instead, he decided who would speak at what time. He would announce names at random

Does Humor Has To Be Loud To Be Understood?

Filmmakers are the cleverest lot. They make their comedy scenes so bellowing loud that nobody dares misunderstand. One hint of humor is carried out in continuously heaped up dialogues so that the viewers don't dare stop laughing. They are dead right. Fine or refined or defined or subtle or quiet or subdued humor is utterly helpless before the connoisseur humor eaters. Anybody trying to do that is rejected dejected and ejected. Herr Humor! But I was also wrong. I thought this 'understanding' is only rampant in India. Now I'm afraid it's a global phenomenon. Dare prove me wrong!
