As inevitable as it might be, sickness and death is never easy to talk about. Let alone crack jokes over.
But in a refreshingly different initiative, the Indian Association of Palliative Care made a video featuring some terminally ill patients who performed standup comedy for their families and doctors.
Their jokes take a dig at disease and death, and are centered around the idea that one need not take life (and the end of it) all that seriously.
This might hurt just a little bit, okay, a fair bit- but if these people can summon the strength to laugh about their pain, then the least we can do is be accepting of it.
Some perspective, eh?
