Jaipur (Rajasthan), May 12 : Police in Jaipur began their weekend with a de-stressing laughter session on Saturday.

The cops, who have to work for long hours in irregular shifts under stressful conditions, were imparted laughter training in a bid to help them get over job-related anxiety and tensions.

Around 1,200 Rajasthan State Police personnel from all ranks, attended the laughing session.

"It will help in good behaviour. It will also give us a fresh mind to think positive," said Rohtas Singh, a traffic policeman.

K. D. Charan, Additional Superintendent of Police said: "We have to always deal with people in a harsh manner.

We always stop people, order them to do this, go from here. It is all very stressful. And, as they say, we can get oxygen either in the ICU of a hospital or through a good laugh, and we decided to come here and laugh our lungs out."

Medical experts are of the unanimous view that laughing lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, increases muscle flexion and boosts immune function by raising levels of infection-fighting T-cells, disease fighting proteins called Gamma-Interferon and B-cells, which produce disease-destroying antibodies.

Laughter also triggers the release of Endorphins, the body's natural painkillers and produces a general sense of well-being.olice personnel rue being invariably deprived of attending all social and religious functions, as security duties demand their presence in the field.

Policemen say they would like to attend such camps more often, as they believe it would help them to be more efficient and relaxed in mind and body.
