Tips To Impress Your Boss
Never walk without a document in your hands
People with documents in their hands look like
heading for important meetings. People with nothing in
their hands look
they're heading for the cafeteria. People with a
newspaper in their

make sure you
loads of stuff home with you at night, thus generating
that you work longer hours than you do.

Never answer your phone if you have voice mail.
People don't call you

Screen all your

Infosys, TCS and Wipro
One day, three consultants, one from Wipro, one from Infosys and one
from TCS, went together for a walk. They were old buddies from b-
school, and they were joining together to remember the tough old days
they went as students together.
For no apparent reasons, they went into this zoo an passed an
elephant.Having worked in the same field and from the same school, of
course there is a little bit of peer competition going on between
themselves, so when he saw this elephant, an idea clicked the Infosys
guy, he said to the others ' Why don't we prove who are the best
among ourselves?'. The other two, of course, agreed.
Then the Infosyan said 'Let's make a test. Whoever can make this
elephant to laugh, he works for the best firm'. After they all
agreed, they started. Being a pure logical strategist, the Infosyan
tried to make the elephant laugh by telling jokes. Of course it
stayed still... As a more practical consultant, the Wipro guy tried
to make funny gestures... and the elephant still stayed still....
Now, comes the TCS guy.. Being the practical guy he was always told
to be, he whispered something to the elephant, and it laughed at him
while pointing its fingers to him...
The other two were astonished. How come this TCS guy be able to beat
them? So the Wipro guy said 'OK, let's make another test. Let's make
this elephant cry !!'. So there they went again, practicing the same
method as before. The Infosys guy told sad sad stories, the Wipro guy
made sad gestures, and they fail again......
Then, the TCS guy whispered something again to the elephant's ear and
it just cried, weeping.....and patting the TCS guy's shoulder.
This cannot be, thought the other two. So the Infosyan said 'OK,
you've won twice. If you can win this test, we will bow to you. Let's
make this elephant run'. He went and bark to the elephant orders to
run.Of course, it stayed still .... The Wipro guy pushes the elephant
and stab it with stake to make it run, it stayed still. So...our TCS
guy come to it and whispered something again to it's ear and the
elephant run and run as fast as it could, as if it was scared to
The other two surrendered. They say 'OK, you're the best pal. You
work for a very good firm, tell us your secret'.
'Well' said the TCS guy, 'the first time I made it laugh, I said I
work for TCS'.
' When I made it cry as if it were very sad and patted me, I told the
elephant how much I get paid'.
' And when I made it run scared to death, I said to it, Why don't you
