World Laughter day May 2

“A well-balanced person is one who finds both sides of an issue laughable”. Herbert Procknow

World Laughter Day (WLD) is celebrated on the first Sunday of May.

This year it falls on May 2.

Can this day be celebrated when still corona is raging and millions are dying?

I don’t have an answer for this!

World Laughter Day was created in 1998 by Madan Kataria.

“I have not seen anyone dying of laughter, but I know millions who are dying because they are not laughing.”  Dr Madan Kataria

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.

This day is celebrated to highlight the importance of laughter in our lives.

With the Covid pandemic spreading its tentacles across India and still active in other parts of the world, laughter or humour can be uplifting.

I can understand the loss of human lives.

And it’s very difficult to get a laughing mood.

But still, it is said, ‘laughter is the best way to fight corona during ‘isolation’ or ‘quarantine’ since laughter improves the body immunity to fight corona infection.

It’s advised that one should practice ‘laughter’ at least 30 minutes a day to improve overall body immunity and thus lung capacity is increased and lungs are made strong to withstand Corona onslaught.

And the effective weapon to fight Corona…

“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” Mark Twain

My post is incomplete if I fail to mention my friend Chris, who makes me smile everyday, through his blog, {Mr.Ohh’s Sideways View} and also via his comments on my various posts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Smiling face

“The most beautiful makeup is the reflection of kindness from a smiling face.” Debasish Mridha

Dear friend, how much could you smile today?

I know smiling or laughing or being in a jolly mood is not all that easy these days.

But still, I feel you must just laugh at your life because of the way it treats you now and then.

If you still find it difficult to smile just look at those kids who are unmindful of the things happening around and just smile as they play with each other.

Just bring back your inner child to life!
