A university to teach how to laugh your way through life!
The city, which is known as India's tech capital because of it being home to a few thousand IT and IT-related firms with thousands of young men and women who are stressed out by working late hours, will get a university that offers to train people to laugh and breathe properly for greater benefits of body and mind.
"If all goes well, then by April-May 2011, I will start my first certified Laughter Yoga teacher training in the university complex," Madan Kataria, the brain behind the 'university', told IANS.
Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, has earned a name by popularising 'Laughter Yoga' therapy that combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing or 'pranayama'.
"The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits," he said.
