I was crowned Bakra on April 1st, Fools day.

This was the most happening fools day for me. :) Sent the below email to 5 of my friends using a Java Email program.

From: Termination
To: Somebody

Subject: Termination
Dear Somebody, This is to inform you about the termination of your employment with ACB for the reasons set forth based on performance.

We have scheduled a conference with you today at 5pm in Aryabhatta conference room. At that time we will review the reasons for the possible termination of your employment.

Please consider this as a formal letter of your one month service notice period at ACB. Your services will be considered terminated from 30th April 2008 EOD.

Thanks & Regards


P.S: We advice you do not discuss this with anyone.

After realizing they were fooled, the reply these 5 sent me, made me the real bakra of the day.

After realizing (which took about 5 seconds) that its a reply to my prank, I was crowned bakra of the day.
But this was the best April 1st so far for me.
