The street smartness I learnt from Arvind. He was my manager at Wipro.
- No matter how bad a situation may look like you can avoid it, otherwise you can handle it through some hack (Jugaad).
- The ruthless corporate politics will beat you up, if you do not play smartly. If you want to stay in an institution for long term you have to play politics.
- If you always put your head down and do your work, you will be ignored and at the mercy of others. After every one is taken their part whatever left (if any) will be given to you. You need to ask.
