I always wondered, “How do we make Friends?” It was not until Class 3 that I found the secret to become an approachable figure – Sense of Humour and Wisdom….I stumbled upon a bunch of “Champak” Comics during the Summer Vacation, which had a whole section in it dedicated to Jokes for Kids. I read those and couldn’t stop laughing. I made a separate Notebook where I’d use to write them down. When school reopened, I shared those Jokes with the whole class. As I had expected, everyone laughed. I made this into a regular habit, and soon enough, I had developed the ‘Class Clown’ persona; always making others laugh. “
