It is a human trait to feel lethargic and sleepy after a meal, especially lunch. And the medical world says a short nap after lunch is refreshing. But office timings do not recognise this and many officials find a way out — they tell their personal staff to inform callers that they are in a meeting and the ‘authority’ takes a quick nap.
This, we find pardonable. But what of those who go into a dreamless sleep immediately after entering the office? It’s as if they relax in office and work at home! The daring refrain of their minions is, “Saru pandukuntunnaru, ardaganta varaku disturb cheyavaddu annaru” (Sir is taking a nap, not to be disturbed for half hour).
