But today in the modern world, we have lost the sense of humour. Many are under depression. To overcome this, many organize laughing clubs also. The laughter produced today in the event should not be an artificial one. Today people only give a business smile,” 

Speaking on the occasion, Fr Alban D’Souza, parish priest of Stella Maris Church Kalmady said, “A meaningful programme was organized by ICYM Kalmady and ICYM Udupi deanery. Today on April 1, we also celebrate Fool’s day. With handful of numbers in the ICYM of Kalmady Unit, they took the challenge to organize such a big event. On this occasion I congratulate them as well as all the participants who took part in the competitions.”
