An air conditioned office,good food and the IPL seem to be no less than lucrative incentives for a ‘loyal’ office goer this summer
To out-station office goers,going to air-conditioned office seems to be a better idea than sitting at home under a fan in the sweltering heat. Moreover,catching the IPL action live with office friends too seems a good option than missing family on off days.

I stay on the third floor,which is also the top most of the building and straight sunrays make it almost impossible to be here after 10 am,to make the matter worse there are power cuts. So I long to prefer going to the air-conditioned comfort of my office than sitting at home and bear those power cuts. As all my roommates go to office early,I also go to office before time.

I stay in a paying guest accommodation,where air condition is a far cry,we dont even have a television and radio remains the only source of entertainment. And in such situation,going to office is a welcome thing. Unlike the graveyard shift,my office time starts at 1 pm and I come back by 11.30 at night. So the during the hottest time I am usually in office. But on my off days I have to bear all heat as I stay to home,given I dont have a family to spent time with. Moreover,even friends are not keen on going out during the daytime considering the heat. Work is fun especially if it comes with good working environment and like-minded colleagues.

IPL matches are no fun,if you watch them alone and given this,office becomes the best place to watch them. As it is,it is so hot outside; an air-conditioned office is good choice over a lonely,hot hostel room. Specially my office,where the scene is as lively as the stadium itself,not to mention till the boss comes. Apart from company,comfort and IPL,office also takes care of providing good food unlike at home,where either I wait for my maid to come and cook or I end up cooking myself; because I cant go out to buy something leaving my IPL matches.

Just two days back,the air-condition at our office was not working and this one reason was enough for me to hate that place and wait for my off days. However,now when the things are okay,I really feel like going to office and spent time with my friends and colleagues. This proves a good,cool environment could be an encouraging factor for us.

Me and my wife both return at the same time,and there has been a mutual agreement that office is a better place to be given its comfort in terms of air-conditioned and clean atmosphere ,good IPL-patriots as co-workers,which is rare sight at home,where we end up fighting over remote and channel and I am forced to watch the never ending serials all the time.
