Yesterday, it was Daughter’s Day, and now it’s Son’s Day. Tomorrow will be another ‘Day,’ a particular ‘Day’ dedicated to a cause or marking an occasion just for fun.

The other day, a friend reminded us on Facebook that it was International Ice Cream Day while holding two enticing and dripping ice cream cones in each of his hands.

From Women’s Day and Zero Discrimination Day to World Water Day and Earth Day, World Bee Day, Malaria, Poetry, Pulses to World Tea Day, Tuna Day, Dance Day, Jazz and Bicycle Day, Friendship Day, Teachers Day and Chess, Philosophy, Toilet, Clean Air for Blue Skies Day, International Day of Happiness, and the listing goes on and on in the packed calendar of committed dates for one reason or the other.

In this congregation of special days, we can’t ignore the International Fools’ Day on April 1st. After all, it is an inner fool within us that behaves from time to time in mischievous and playful ways, an inherent child who is cheerful and lighthearted.

  1. Very Goid. There are other days also, e.g., Sun, Mon, Tues, Wednes, Thurs, Fri and Satur. Man by nature is forgetful. All days are some sort of reminders to man for his well being. Like days, different weathers also reminds us to act accordingly. About days, how beautifully it is said, “ Every dog has his day. Rome was not built in a day and good old days” the list goes on . Tomorrow will be another day.
