‘Indians very happy…’: Jaishankar dismisses World Happiness Report as ‘Mind Games’
In a first response from the Narendra Modi government to the World Happiness Report released earlier this week, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has called it 'mind games'. Interacting with students at the RV Dental College in Bengaluru, S Jaishankar dismissed the report and cited an example of his friend from Singapore to claim how Indians are happier than the Europeans.
As an Indian i am happy and proud of my country
As a Canadian, I fail to understand those happiness indexes as well.. We have many times come across as the happiest country... Yet I fail to see that in everyone around me... Everyone seems miserable/depressed and lonely... We are just good at making thing look good... Our Healthcare sucks, nobody can even afford housing anymore, winters are long and depressing, people are stuck up and nobody talks to anyone
Happiness is subjective. It depends on what is happiness. Indians are happy because of family system due to which there will always be moral support for each other which is nor present in western or European countries.
We are Indians , we are Proud to be Indian and Proudly saying I'm From India.
As a New Zealander, who always looks at things through a political lens... When the news reached us about India falling in it's rankings; I honestly interpreted that as being a political hit. India refused to break ties with Russia and one particularly domineering country doesn't like the word ''no''.
Number of citizens on anti depressant pills and alcohol consumption should also be considered in this happiness index
Maturity is when you realise that the Government of India is trying to reform the educational policy of our country by trying to implement Finland's system of teaching and learning.

I am in Finland for the past 2 years .Its a very cold country with temperatures soaring -30 degrees at times , most of the people in Finland and it's neighbouring country Estonia are using meds to fight depression and most of them committed sucides due to depression and loneliness. the world while the citizens of the most happiest country are in denial of it
I love India and to me, people in India are very happy and always smiling and celebrating many festivals together with Joy and happiness The true meaning of happiness
We are proud to be an Indian
I live in the west. People in India are much happier than people in the west. People in the West are lonely, sad, and grumpy most of the time. India is happier than the west any day because of its family values, culture, festival, and togetherness. In fact, the whole of Asia will always be happier than the west.

Am contend, I have hopes for future n my country and I enjoy tradition n culture of India. I am happy to be living in India n being Indian
Indians are happy and content because of our strong family bond and cultural values
When someone tells me how happy i seem to him , my depression goes away and i become very happy
When i am told how sad i look to others, i fall into depression knowing that others are not able to identify the level of my happiness. I always value my happiness on what others think about how happy i am . Going by this logic world happiness index makes perfect sense to me
The worst of this index is ukraine which is fighting war and Pakistan which is fighting for wheat flour are ahead in this race
As an Indian, I am very happy with my country, its current govt, and how my country is progressing. Feeling proud to be witnessing this era!
I left USA after staying there for years and returned to India last year..I was not happy there but enjoying my life here .So happiness really depends on individuals and all these reports have no real basis..
As a STUDENT I AM VERY UNHAPPY WITH THE EDUCATION SYSTEM WHY MARKS ARE SO IMPORTANT
They must include personal satisfaction, mental health, family support, feeling safe in the factors to determine happiness.
In India we are living very happily
We Talk Dramas
When I stayed in Uk for one year I realised one thing its the most miserable place unhappiest people living lonely life when I came to India back I didnt even realised I was so used to silence there India is a happy place better than most western nations where all u can see and hear is DJ or nothing
The report is quite accurate. I've spoken to few Fsh nationals living outside Finland for work, and found they're very happy in their home country.
If this is what Happiness looks like (PAK & UKRAINE) than I'm glad we're SAD
Indian is that land where we know how to live joyfully and we have always focused on inner wellbeing.
Another thing, we Indians have Yoga, meditation and classical music which heals us.
So it's also about culture, why we are happy.
We have had all world philosophers from this country. The very definition of happiness was born out of India.
My opinion India is no. 1 Rank in happiness. There's freedom speech and activities everyone and everything. Comparing to other nations.
as per Happiness Index - "Zelensky looked the happiest person on earth "

We should concentrate in our development.
We should help others those who are in crisis.
The more we grow and the more behind we will be on these sort of ranking polls
