  2. Ravi,Thanks for dropping by. I feel you will be able to laugh at yourself only if you a strong sense of self esteem. It’s all about taking your work seriously and not yourself !However, if self deprecating humor is overdone, people will begin to believe that you are an idiot !I don’t know whether I’ve confused or clarified but here’s a quote worth pondering over !”A sense of imagination was given to man to comfort him for what he is not and a sense of humor, to console him for what he is !”
