Laugh and be well!' exclaimed the great Dr. Johnson, and he never spoke truer words. For, laughter is certainly good medicine, guaranteed to drive away the blues and improve your general well-being. Ruskin Bond declares that he had great fun in putting together this anthology of hilarious stories, humorous articles, and comic verse. The reader will share his enjoyment. You will smile, chuckle, or laugh out loud, whether at an account of a crazy cricket match, or a cheese that smells to high heaven, or a goat that goes berserk in a posh drawing-room.
