When I visited Mumbai (Bombay), India, during my last vacation, I had the chance of meeting with a group of people who every morning assembled at a place and " laughed their hearts out". Looking at them, I thought they were inmates of a mental asylum having a morning out. I was totally wrong. They were the members of a "laughter club", practising "laughter yoga".
"The unique concept of Laughter Yoga and Laughter Club is the brain child of Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai. Any one can laugh in a group for 15-20 minutes without depending upon great sense of humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter Yoga combines simple laughter exercises (simulated laughter) and gentle yoga breathing, which turns into real laughter when practiced in a group.
'World Laughter Day' was created in 1998 by Dr Madan Kataria. The celebration of World Laughter Day is a positive manifestation for world peace and is intended to build up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship through laughter. Its popularity has grown exponentially with that of the Laughter Yoga movement (now counting over 5000 Laughter Clubs worldwide on all 5 continents).
The first 'World Laughter Day' gathering took place in Mumbai, India, on 11th of January 1998. 12,000 members from local and international Laughter Clubs joined together in a mega laughter session."
"Laughter is The Best Medicine", as the saying goes. We have to create situations in life when we can forget our mental tension, worries and difficulties.. The best way is to laugh for some time with or without reason.
I have compiled some jokes from my friends' e-mails and some from the internet. I hope they will relax the readers. Let us share a few lighter moments. Hope you will have time to enjoy them.

A Schoolmaster from a remote rural area was transferred to a school in Bombay (India). As was the practice in the school, he was asked to address the assembly on August 15, the Independence Day of India.
Here is his dynamite speech : ********************************* Leddies and Gentulmens,
Contemporaries, Children, "This is my first maiden speech. If small small mistakes get inside my speech, I ask pardon. Stickly speaking, I wanted to joint your school more fastly, but for the following reason:
Too much time lost in getting slipper reservation for the train in three-tyre compartment. The clerk rejected to give ticket. I put complaint on station master. He said me to go to lady clerk.

Oh loving beauty you float with grace If only you could hide your face

It was the day of the big sale. Rumours of the sale and some advertising in the local paper were the main reason for the long line that formed by 8:30 in the morning in front of the store. A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to be pushed back, amid loud and colourful curses.
