Mangaluru: Laughter is the best therapy that heals people when they suffer from stress or tension. Laughing at least once every day loudly will make us a happier person and will also fill us with energy and excitement. Sometimes laughter is the only thing that we require for healing ourselves from the negativity around us.

To provide a platform for laughter, St Aloysius Ranga Adhyayana Kendra, in association with UGC STRIDE Project, organised ‘NAGE RANGA’ – A Humour programme recently in the L F Rasquinha Hall of LCRI Block.
