A secret of Happiness Day 23.

A young guy was  doing  PhD. in UK. His father spent a huge amount of money for his research.

 After  staying  there for eight years, he came home for a holiday. His father asked him how long

would  it take to finish his research. The son replied,"It may take another one year." The father

enquired  what was the problem and why he could not come to the conclusion. The son said," These

are all complicated  things. My theme is 'the secret of happiness', which is  very difficult to  assess

and  come to some conclusion."  The boy's eighty year old grand mother was sitting  in a corner

listening to the conversation between the father and son. She interrupted and said," It is very  simple .

You look back at your own life. If all the past events of  your  life make you smile, you will know 

the secret of happiness in real life."

  3. Beautiful post, Ma'am. Loved this line "You look back at your own life. If all the past events of your life make you smile, you will know the secret of happiness in real life." Couldn't agree with her more

  5. So true Ushaji, We search all over the world for something that lies within us and we call ourselves the most intelligent/smart species on the planet.
