Recently, I came to know that one of my childhood friends, who is a gynaecologist working in a Government hospital, had tested COVID positive and was hospitalized.
I called her and asked about her health. She was very depressed, and her voice seemed quite dull. I decided to recall our school days and also shared a few jokes with her. After some time, I could hear her laughing. Her laughter bought back all the school memories and the carefree days that we had shared. It stayed with me for a couple of hours.
Making someone smile and laugh gives you immense joy.
