Happiness is not something readymade, it comes from our own actions!


Happiness is not something readymade, it comes from our own actions!

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” goes the saying by J.K Rowling. Happiness is considered to be one of the greatest possession of an individual. But the question is should happiness even be considered to be a possession? I don’t think so. Happiness is not something ready made it comes from our own actions. Happiness is a relative concept. Each individual finds joy in different activities, situations and experiences. Happiness can be found in all kinds of places. Some feel happy in the pages of their books, some finds joy by travelling, while some find in playing the strings of their guitar or piano, whereas some find immense joy by singing their hearts out. Happiness must be something that the individual creates. It depends on person to person and the different perspective of people. Happiness cannot be owned or earned. If you hope to find your happiness in material possessions and fleeting moments, you will find your happiness to be temporary and short-lived rather than deep feeling and long lasting. True happiness comes from experiences and not possessions.

Everyone says that “happiness comes from richness” but it is wrong. The richest are not the happiest people in the world and in the same way the poorest are not the saddest people in the world. Even a beggar can lead a life of happiness while a billionaire may face a life of sorrow. It all depends on our own actions.

Most of the people in the world wants to be happy but only a few achieve this. So act happy, be happy and make everyone happy around you and lead the happiest life.

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
