It is rightly said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Life is too short to be bored. So, it is wise to choose a job that fulfills one’s passion, brings joy and keeps others entertained.

And if you’re waking up each morning dreading the day and not enjoying your work like this viral ‘dancing umpire’ from Odisha, it’s high time you find something new.

Without any doubt, this umpire from Odisha clearly knows how to turn heads with his dance moves.

Umpiring is not an easy job. An umpire has to stand under the sun and do his job while the players mostly take away all the attention. But, this dancing umpire from Odisha has stolen the thunder of both batters and bowlers, thanks to his dance moves like iconic dance king Govinda.
