To "be a babu" means to procrastinate or take forever to do a simple task...

Originated from the term "Babu": a government worker (in Indian subcontinent), typically a clerk or official, who takes a year to do what would normally take a day.... unless he/she has a vested interest (such as bribe) to get it done faster...
Guy: Dude, what's taking you so long to finish the paperwork?
Friend: I dunno man.... I'm not sure I want to do it...
Guy: Don't be a babu now!
