#Happiness Is

Source: http://CokeURL.com/96jnc

We are the happiness that we seek. Simple things can make us immensely happy. The laugh of a baby, the stupid silly actions of your pet, crazy dialogues of your friend, listening to your favorite music and watching your favorite movie after years can bring so much joy. I don’t think smile and laughter are the only ways to express happiness. I am emotionally overwhelmed when I’m very happy, and so tears are a given. It’s funny but whenever I am happy at the core, I cry. It is perhaps very uncorrupted way of experiencing the peace in happiness.

“It’s not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”

Happiness comes when we learn to accept situations and people the way they are, rather than trying our best to change them. It resides in that fine balance between holding on and letting go. It consists in focusing on giving and serving, than getting in return. It comes from within us, and depends on nothing except our very own thoughts. We can always tune in our minds to happiness. And the more we share, the more it grows. It has no terms and conditions attached. It is god’s gift and is free for all.
For me happiness is reading a book that changes your life, including your entire perspective of certain things. Happiness is sharing the kitchen with your mother as a partner in brewing and baking. 

“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.”

Happiness is gossiping for long hours into the night with your best friends. Happiness is sipping coffee, gazing at the far horizon with music in your ears. Happiness is accepting yourself for who you are and enjoying solitude. Happiness is laughing hard and crazy with your family. Happiness is forgiving and being forgiven. Happiness is savoring home-made delicacies and licking your finger tips. Happiness is witnessing that first shower in months, and gathering hail stones from the grass. Happiness is writing this post.

“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

And then with Coca-Cola, happy gulps with friends and foes is a given. Be it cold evenings, hot noon times or drowsy mornings, this cold drink saves the mood and the day. It is a good respite between boring lectures, and continuous classes. It is best for every taste. Happiness is bunking class with friends and making a toast with the Cola can. Happiness is savoring it along with chicken ‘kebabs’ or chicken cutlets amidst chit chats, gossips, world shattering laughter, and all the hullabaloo. I still can’t get my fill of this combination. It’s a deliciously happiness boosting combo. I just love it.

Queeristan by Parmesh Sahani

  Queeristan (Amazon Link) Thanks to Audible Free Trial I listened to this amazing non-fiction on LGBTQ inclusion in Indian workplaces. Author Parmesh Sahani identifies as gay Indian, working closely with Godrej higher management and employees for years to create an inclusive workplace, both legally and in spirit. This book is a result of those years of experience, research, collaboration with individuals from difference spectrum of the society and organizations who has successfully transitioned into a queer friendly one.   Indian history is inclusive. From the Khajuraho temple architectures, to Konark to the Rig Veda, there is existing proofs even 2000 years ago of Indian inclusiveness of queer. It’s the draconian British law that criminalised it, which was scraped in 2009, came into effect once again following a sad judgement in 2013 and eventually was scraped off for good in 2018. I am in awe of the lawyers who fought this legal battle- colleagues and partners – Arundhati Katju
