But cats and dogs being part of the Indian bureaucracy's office space that too in the Central government, is truly an eye-opener.
A senior I-T official tweeted a video of cats playing around the North Block on Sunday. In the video, two cats are seen pawing each other playfully around a Ganesh statue. In his tweet, the official indicated that the little animals hanging around the offfice space was one of the fun moments at North Block. He wrote, "Weekends may mean work sometimes, but North Block has lighter months also." The tweet received several shares and likes especially by those who understand the joy of having animals in the vicinity of their office.
