International Day of Happiness in
Days to go:
International Day of Happiness is a global celebration coordinated by the United Nations (UN) which serves as a symbol of unity and solidarity in the pursuit of joy and overall well-being. Prescribed unanimously by the UN Member States in 2012, this Observance underlines happiness as a fundamental human goal. Indubitably, International Day of Happiness amplifies the significance of happiness and emphasizes its intrinsic role in the lives of people worldwide, transcending borders, cultures, and societies.
The UN announced the inception of the International Day of Happiness in 2012, following a Bhutanese-led resolution that encouraged member nations to prioritize the happiness of their citizens. This call resonates significantly in India, a nation with a rich tradition of philosophies and practices that foster happiness and inner peace, including yoga and meditation. Observance of International Day of Happiness thus paves the way for reaffirming these age-old traditions and promoting their global credibility, while signalling the importance of addressing the mental and emotional well-being of Indians.
In India, the International Day of Happiness is marked by an outpouring of positivity. Communities host workshops and seminars encouraging positivity, happiness, and managing good mental health, while educational institutions may engage students with activities centered around happiness. People are encouraged to show kindness through various means, with an intention to foster holistic happiness. The Day, observed globally on 20th March, affirms India's commitment to create a happier society, and strengthens its endeavors to deliver comprehensive well-being to its citizens.
