The Word.: When was the last time you laughed?

Divyak D’Souza: “At my own meme about overdressed influencers at [India] Couture Week.”

Nitya Arora: “I laugh a lot…every day!”

Kareema Barry: “Probably a minute ago…I am not stingy with my laughter! People often tell me, ‘You make me feel like I am the funniest person’, and my usual response is, ‘I laugh at the drop of a hat, so hold that as the gold standard to judge your skills’. But, on a serious note, I think if you laugh, you will believe you are happy!”

Shubhika Sharma: “I laugh the loudest when I am with my team, especially when we are trying to solve problems or issues. If you are in an environment where people are creatively charged and trust each other enough to be able to give and take criticism sportingly, then it makes for a very fun time.”

Sakshi Shivdasani: “That’s an easy one to answer: I laugh all the time, at everything! And it helps a lot when I am creating content, too.”
