Some 10 or so years ago I went with my entire office for a team building day and this laughter yoga was one of the exercises. I like to fancy myself as rather jovial but could not "fake it til you make it" as was the catchphrase. Meanwhile a couple of the ladies could not stop even when the exercise was over, as though they were watching a Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson film while being simultaneously tickled.

As an aside yet related thought, Peter of Toward a Better Future posted a most excellent read about Bangladesh which put in proper context is a province of India.
