11 June,2010 the hosts South Africa kicked off the FIFA Worldcup with the game against Mexico. It is astonishing to see how much excitement and frenzy a Worldcup of soccer has created around the world. Everyone on the streets, in the coffee area of the offices, restaurants seem to be talking about names like Messi, Henry, Rooney, Beckham ala carte :-). Soccer World-cup seems to bring people of different religions, caste & nationalities together. This may be the best time for office peers/managers/subordinates to bond and put their relationship on a different altitude.
