3. If you miss a boss that's 100% unhelpful, then look no further.

6. Sumukhi's zero-fucks-given policy will remind you of Stanley's amazing moments of deadpan honesty.

7. There's that one guy who reeeaaaally doesn't want to be there.

Remember when Ryan was a temp, and just HATED every moment of being in the office? Well, Armaan Garewal, played by Kanan Gill has to spend 500 hours in the NGO as community service for drunk driving. And he can't wait to be out.

You'll be glad to find equal amounts of anarchy in the equally dull setting of an NGO.

Just like The Office, this show proves that it doesn't matter if your job is dull or monotonous. There's always room for nonsense.
