Let’s face it, we need some lighter moments to relax in this stressful time. So, don’t wash your hands off these ingenious people and you will thank the service providers on Sunday evening when India goes for a self-imposed 'janata curfew'.

When the history of colonisation of the Americas hits you with a lighter tone...

When the seasonal common cold keeps us on our toes...

And one for the introverts...
