About three years ago, we had gone to make a small presentation on Laughter Yoga at Viscus Infotech an IT company based inIndore. The CEO of the company felt that Laughter Yoga would be helpful in enhancing the creativity of the software professionals by relaxing their minds and activating the right brain. The session was well appreciated and later on the young CEO himself conducted laughter sessions for his staff. Such actions make the workplace vibrant and full of positive vibes.
After the session, a young lady Ranu came up to my wife Radhika and said that she had liked the session and wanted her husband to also experience it. We invited them to our Suniket Laughter Club which meets on Sunday mornings. Though the park was far and it was difficult to get up early during winter, they braved the cold and came all the way to laugh with us. We knew it was not practical for them to continue this for long and sure enough after some weeks, they stopped coming. A couple of years passed by but they could not forget the chants of Very Good, Very Good, Yay and laughter reverberated in their minds in moments of solitude.
What happens is that over a period of time, laughter which starts as a simple exercise routine, penetrates skin deep and changes our outlook towards life. We become more loving, caring and sharing.
It seems Ranu had not taken off Laughter Yoga from her mind at any point of time. It was only due to her household and professional engagements that she had to keep away but the laughter stream was always trickling inside her.
We were more than pleasantly surprised when we received this video clip from her on World Laughter Day (WLD):
It is undoubtedly the sweetest greeting we got in many years on WLD. It touched our hearts to the core! We could sense the deep feelings that must have percolated in her heart and soul before she started playing with the child. To me, this singing, dancing, playing and laughing with your child and imparting a happy attitude towards life is the ultimateParadise!
