I don't think money ever brought happiness to anybody. The article is really interesting and I am proud to be a happy citizen of Bangladesh, where people struggle for their existence, their food, suffer natural disasters. Even with all these they are really happy. Now, the question is why and how is that? To be happy first of all you need to have limited expection or desire, which can make you less busy with your business and provide more time for your familiy. Dear readers, my question is why do we work, why do we talk about development? Isn't all to keep the people happy? If so, then my question would be then what is happiness? How do we achieve it? Really tough question, huh! Actually happiness is very simple and stays at a single point, however sorrows flows like waves, which comes one after another. So, we feels sorrows most of the time, but we can not find the happiness. We have to feel the happiness leaving the waves of our sorrows. Bangladeshi people knows the way to leave their sorrows and find happiness. They never frastrated though their houses were demolished by the storm or devastating floods. They never forget to dream of new houses after the disaster. Hope gives them their way of life and happiness. Keep your expectation little and dream for a new sunrise.
