Happiness is a state of mind but has so much to do with our heart. Striking a balance between heart and mind is key to one’s happiness.
Let’s breathe! It’s not that difficult, is it? The real beauty of life lies in experiencing it, and not merely in spending it. Time and circumstances are different for different people, but what really matters, is the spirit, which possesses the power to bring us alive every moment.
Nowadays, people are so bogged down by their stressful life that they have forgotten the art of living. They refuse to enjoy all the blessings that our Creator has bestowed upon us. We are so burdened by our over- ambitious aspirations that we ourselves choose not to be happy.
The barrier which stops us listening to our heart is our own fear. Yes! We fear to follow our heart and just want to be the part of the mad rat-race. We aimlessly continue doing things that do not make us happy, thus reaching to the point where we lose the very zeal of life. What a loss! I believe we all are here with the objective of being happy and the mantra of being happy is loving what you do and spreading joy around.
So I follow these 5 Ps which bring me a lot of happiness. You can too.
Foremost, we need to be at peace with our past and future and just live in the present. Our present will lay the foundation of our future. Everything is in our hands. Either we can make it or break it. Past is always counted as an experience, so let us accept our failures, learn from them, move on and grow. That is what we are here for.
A passion is always a life-changer. It provides you with the necessary adrenaline rush that always keeps you going. Your passion teaches you to live, love, explore, dream, grow and reach to the zenith of happiness. If you still have not figured out what you are passionate about? Then it’s time for some introspection and meeting your real-self.
An innocent and pure heart always acts as a guide and shows you the correct path. It helps you to differentiate between right and wrong. It makes you more human, it will never let greed and selfishness overpower you. In a pure heart resides pure and innocent love. Love, which is eternal, Love that can conquer all the negativity and gives birth to a beautiful life. Love can create magic and shower you with bountiful happiness. Love, which empowers you to be one with the Almighty.
Life is beautiful and ever-changing. Test of time can really bring out the best in you but can also deter you from your objective; it can transform you for better or bitter. It’s your perseverance and attitude towards life that can do the trick. When everything fails, perseverance helps you prevail.
What you give, always comes back to you many-fold. So one should always try to give back all the goodness he or she has received from the society. We all can do our bit in making a difference in the society, ensuring the completeness of our goal i.e. spreading happiness, serving humanity.
Life can be a lot worth-living and fun, if we take it easy. All the complexities of life can be dissolved, if we realize the simplicity of life. So be an explorer, a dreamer, an enthusiast, a lover, positive thinker and above all a “Happy child”. Life seems simple, as long as you show your dimple.

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
