  1. Yeah there’s no denying the fact ..That Norway is following a smart strategy to make their citizen happy n giving them a relaxed life…India should also try to opt some new strategy
    Instead of focusing on theoretical knowledge we should also choose the path of practical
    Knowledge ..Wheatr it will be in any field like in sports,studies,business,technology etc
    Bcz it is the need of the hour ..So tht it could be possible tht India will also lead
    The happiness index like nrwy n other countries ….Even lifelivng in China is also 76%
    N in India it is jsT 62%..Soo keeping oll these points in my mind .I’m in a very opinion
    Tht for making our nation healthy it is very important to make the people happy
    N I’m sure in upcomg Tym Modi g will definately make any such type of law??
    Thanks uhh
