Later, being awaken by his wife, he realizes and appreciates the development achieved by UPA in last 10 years. It was so funny and I could not stop laughing. I laughed my heart out after almost one year. My life has never been the same after that. Watching these ads helped me to recover from my depression. Now, I’m leading a quite happy life.”
