How is laughter related to religion which is usually serious stuff? Religion as identity easily becomes a barrier. Laughter, much like music and dance, overcomes this barrier and bridges the gap created by ‘otherness’.
The DIRS had the pleasure of organizing a Laughter Yoga workshop on Tuesday, 23 August from 2.30 to 3.30 pm in the gymnasium. Mr. Modi and his team of senior youngsters of the Laughter Yoga Club, Juhu communicated the childlike joy and natural energy of Laughter to our students who were extremely stressed out by a flurry of activities, lectures, projects, exams, etc.
We discovered how to laugh away our stress. Laughter is such a lively and lovely “out of the box” way of inter-religious dialogue. If we can laugh together, whatever religion we belong to, we can live together!
