April's month-long ridiculous pranks.

April has many more ridiculous pranks in store, and we're not even talking about April Fool's Day. Here are 7 days, that actually exist, that deserve much more appreciation than they get:


1. 7th April: No Housework Day

Every teenager gets up in the morning thinking "Aaj kuch toofani karte hain" but ends up going to D-Mart to get bread and detergent. And what is with folding your blankets after getting up in the morning? You'll have to unfold it again at night! We celebrate No Housework Day to revolt against these boring chores. To which our Indian moms respond:

2. 6th April is Tell A Lie Day

If your name is Harishchandra but you still want to celebrate this day, we have some easy lies for you:

Virat Kohli is a soft-spoken guy.

As Modiji promised, "acche din" have arrived.

The black buck died of natural causes.

3. 9th April: Cherish an Antique Day

To support plumbers all over the world, Amitabh Bachchan's new movie "No means No Leaky Pipes", it is the sequel to Pink that we have all been waiting for. When reached for comment, Big B had this to say:

6. 26th April: Help a Horse Day

Horses are an integral part of weddings. They bear the weight of fat Indian grooms and dodge the dance moves of drunk uncles. Despite advances in technology, they continue to be the the fastest mode of transportation in Mumbai.

Be responsible, help a horse, by not trying the above stunt yourself.


7. 29th April: Sense of Smell Day

The Sense of Smell Institute, the only institute whose entrance test involves sniffing the question paper, sponsors the Sense of Smell Day. This day is internationally celebrated by going outside (having rajma and sitting at home doesn't count) and trying new fragrances. As a Mumbaikar, this is very easy to do, just go here:

If we, as a culture, are okay with celebrating April Fools' Day, then let's not hold back and celebrate them all!
