We have faced and seen plenty of April fool’s day pranks, some of which cheer us, some of which surprise us and even some that shock us. But it’s really sweet when a prank can make someone happy from within and make you feel better. A prank that was aimed to trick people, yes, but at the same time aimed to ‘change’– change people’s mindset.
A day when everybody likes to play pranks on their friends, when all successful or not so successful pranks are usually cheered, laughed upon and then forgotten, fun just for a day? But this certainly was aimed to last.
