Ha ha ha ha!
This should be enough as the answer, but let me elaborate.
How can you measure happiness? Most of these indices are based on material comforts. Is material comfort = happiness? Any idiot with half a brain will understand that these two things are not equal.
If you give importance to these indices, you are not very bright. All these indices are created by white people to make feel better about themselves. If you see the list, you will see all African countries are at the bottom of the list. They have decided the parameters for “happiness” based on what they are “good” at.
I find happiness in the fact that I do not have to worry about my wife leaving me and my wife does not have to worry about me leaving her. If this security is not there in the “happiest” countries in the world, where is the question of happiness?
Anyone who believes this propaganda is stupid. If you are upset about your neighbor being happy, then you deserve to be unhappy. Jealous people are always unhappy. Fyodor Dostoevsky in his book, “The Brothers Karamazov” says that it is quite easy to see the happiness of people far away from us, but it is very hard to see the prosperity of one’s neighbors. I feel extremely sad that we are so jealous that we cannot see the happiness of our neighbor.
So, if you believe this index, then you are quite not so intelligent. And, if you believe this index and you are sad that Pakistan is happy, then you are not very intelligent and at the same time extremely jealous. I am very sorry for you. Hopefully, you find some happiness.
Edit: Just after writing this answer, I saw this: Survey: Bengaluru third cheapest city in the world to live in – Times of India . Bengaluru is probably the third most expensive city in India to live in and a “Survey” says that it is the third cheapest city in the WORLD. Ha ha ha!
