India and its happiness

Today is the International Day Of Happiness. Let us talk about happiness surveys done in the world.

In 2021, almost the same countries topped the list in a survey on the happiness index of 149 countries. These surveys signify how happy the citizens of a particular country are.

I have noted down the names of the top 20 happiest countries.

1. Finland6. The Netherlands11. Canada16. Ireland
2. Denmark7. Sweden12. Australia17. Germany
3. Switzerland8. New Zealand13. United Kingdom18. United States
4. Iceland9. Austria14. Israel19. The Czech Republic
5. Norway10. Luxembourg15. Costa Rica20. Belgium

The survey on happiness uses some of the following parameters :

  • GDP per capita
  • Social support
  • Healthy life expectancy
  • Freedom to make life choices
  • Generosity
  • Perceptions of corruption

India is a new entrant to the bottom-ten group. Its rankings from 2013 to 2021 are as follows:

Year Ranking
2021 139
2020 144
2019 140
2018 133
2017 122
2016 118
2015 117
2014 117

It is rightly said, “Happiness leads to Prosperity.”

Here is the list of top 20 prosperous countries:

Our unhappiness is hampering the progress of our country. The happiness index of any country depends upon the happiness of its citizens. So, friends, if we want to see our India on top of the list, we need to take immediate and long-lasting action for our happiness…✍️
