Are you in a mood to celebrate April Fools day?

Time immemorial every year, April 1 is celebrated as April Fool’s day.

On this day it is customary to play pranks, and crack jokes.

For these jokes and pranks, some take it seriously and undergo anxiety while many enjoy the jokes and laugh.

It is said the day brings joy and laughter.

People are extra cautious so that they don’t want to make fool of themselves.

I understand that Odessa in Ukraine is the only place in the world, to have a public holiday.

I am not sure how it was celebrated last year in that city.

This year Corona is in no mood to lie low and hitting the humans with a vengeance.

It’s is said laughter is great medicine and it’s a perfect formula in these gloomy days.

Are you in a mood to celebrate the day?

Everything is funny as long as it’s happening to somebody else.

Happy April Fool’s Day my friend!

And if you have anything important to tell me, tell me on April 2

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

If you are a foreigner,check the dates in February or March for Holi,have enough spare cloths,join the crowd on the streets,spray/sprinkle or splash bright colored dye on anyone walking and to your surprise none will object or abuse you.

It’s so joyful to join the fun.People smear colorful powders on each other. People also carry water guns or balloon filled with colored water.

A word of Caution

1.Experts across the world have advised to reduce mass gatherings to avoid the spread of COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus.So better one avoids the crowd or mass gathering this year,

2.The colors used during the festival come from the flowers but now a days it’s synthetic and one must take caution especially regarding eyes & skin.

How are you celebrating the Valentine’s day,this time ?

Valentines day

Valentine’s day is the day,when all over the world,LOVE is celebrated.

It’s celebrated on 14 th February of every year.

Just think for a second.Are we true to the spirit of Valentine’s day ?

Is it necessary to wait for this day to express love ?

Instead we can  show this love in every day of our life.

Don’t you think true love is the one,which is beyond conditions ?

True love should be forever supportive.

Love should be constant both in times of happiness and sorrow.

Of late, we have become busy in  showing off love ,instead of taking solemn pledge of Love !

And on the Valentine’s day,funnily we exaggerate our Love !

To show love you must buy something and this is  where industries are making a kill on this day,defeating the very purpose of Valentina day.

I guess we are over rating the day !

Money, money,money,it’s so funny !

My take, Love never fails,instead people fail on love.

“Love never dies a natural death.It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source.It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals.It dies if illness and wounds,It dies of weariness,of witherings,or tarnishings.” Anais Nin

Thank you
