Ask anybody and they’ll tell you that lunch breaks at the office hold a special place in their hearts. It’s during that 1-hour that colleagues get together and catch up on the latest gossip, share laughs along with food, and sometimes end up playing games to lighten their mood.
Similarly, Indian employees at the German consulate in Bengaluru were spotted teaching how to play cricket to their fellow German colleagues during lunch break. Achim Burkat, a German consul, shared a video, reported India Today.
“During lunch break my Indian colleagues try to teach my German colleagues how to play cricket Happy to report that the consulate is still intact,” he tweeted.
Have a look at the heartwarming video here:
