April Fool’s Day!

Here’s a cartoon to celebrate with you the tradition of April Fool’s Day!

April Fool’s Day, also called All Fool’s Day, is one of the most light-hearted days of the year throughout the world. A whole day dedicated to making April Fools by cracking jokes to fool, and playing pranks with family, friends and colleagues and generate amusement, without any hard feelings!  

Its origins are uncertain but it is quite an ancient observation in Europe. It is said that references of it can be found as early as 1500s. And as time passed it has become an international fun day – custom of making as many April Fools as possible and not becoming one!

Here are some earlier blog posts of mine on April Fool’s Day, please click on the titles to reach the articles:

April Fool's Day!

April fool! It is not a Generator; it is a Swiss Army Mobile Bakery Wagon!

Our wisdom comes from our experience, and our experience comes from our foolishness! So don’t be worried of April Fools’ Day!
Enjoy the attached video, an evergreen Hindi song!  based on April Fools’ Day!:

Diesel Power Generators are a common site along the roads and in buildings of Hyderabad, due to decades of Power shortage. So when one is passing along Road No. 10, Banjara Hills, or is visiting Ofen Bakery for the first time, at first glance would think that the Olive green Mobile Wagon stationed in front of the bakery is an enclosed Diesel Power Generator.
It is not a Generator; it is a marvellous Mobile Bakery from Switzerland, designed by Swiss Army for its troops with tremendous capabilities. In case electricity is not available it runs on Diesel Generator. The Electric Power is required for the Water Boiler, the Flour Sieve, Dough Kneading Machine, illumination etc. And the Oven can be heated either by Coal, Firewood, Diesel or LPG! And this compact standalone bakery is said to have an output of 2000 Kg. Bread per day! Cakes and Pastries are also baked in this wagon!
And ‘Ofen’ restaurant (Ofen - Oven in Swiss/German) stands out as one of the top most Bakeries in Hyderabad serving authentic and delicious Breads, Pastries and Cakes and a variety of other delectable European dishes.
