I just wanna...

coz you're making me feel alright!!

Happy days are here! *or soo it seems for many of us* And I'm 'happy' for that!! =)
Recently there has been a lot of good news from all sides, including the buddies from Blogsphere! First it was Gaurav - returning from a trip, Shub - with news from family, Pallavi - going on a trip, and finally Arvind - back into the blog world with a BANG!!

*Strange how their post titles are 'Yeeehaaawww!', 'Paaraam Paaraam Paaraa!', 'Deliriously, insanely happy' and 'And the Adventure continues' - wont the title itself bring a smile to your face?!*

Thats the way - aaha aaha - I like it!!!

Me out of my cold n flu! Hey... the way I was busy answering the questionaires, I didn't really let anyone know did I?! ;)


I was reading an article earlier this week in the Staff Cafetaria on my break named, "Forever Happiness - Are you really happy?", on a local magazine. The writer had an interview with a scientist who had been researching on happiness for the past 20 or so years. I don't remember the exact details..and I tried to find the mag today, but its gone.

Some things in particular that I remember about the results of this scientist's research are -

=> Women are usually happier at age 20-25, while men at 30-35.
Reason: These years are the peak times for their lives.

=> People who are married are generally happier than their unmarried counterparts.
Reason: Marriage makes people 'content and fulfilled'!
*now who was complaining about marriage again?!*

=> People in Switzerland are among the happiest in the world!
Reason: The social and economic life style.
*any Swiss resident looking for someone's hand in marriage? Please contact ASAP!! ;)*

And many such quirky ones. Its a shame that I cant remember any more and that I cant find the article to quote some more.


Now I want to know -
What has made you happy - today ??

Married people are happier!!!???!!!!!! I've been married 10 years and I have yet to learn that!!!

Well that sure made ME happy today, to know that I'm happier NOW than I would have been if I had been single!!!!!!!!!!

Puneet said...

What made me happy … ER…. That I got to Sleep 3 and half and hour the extra Crucial half and hour more…K mean a lot ……

then ... got less bored in the lecture ... thats also a happy point.. ;)

Some hindi movie cliché dialogue “Marriage who ladu jo haiye who pastaye aor jo na khaye who bhi pastaye… “

For men being happy at 30-35 could be true may be it’s the Self-Actualization age ..;) maslow lol …

Nihar said...

does it mean that a 33 yr old Swiss man married to 23 yrs old Swiss woman make THE happiest couple?

Anonymous said...

Hey .. sometimes u know we go through that time zone when we hear everything good and thats the fine time ...
well according to me i agree that men are most happier at the age between 30 to 35 coz till that time they have achieved a good deal in their jobs and have become focused and have set their ambition paths :) hehehehe.. well that doesn't mean i am 30. heheeh i am way younger .. hahahha :)

And Aunty in HYD!!! Thats a huge surprise. Wow! You are surely lucky. Wish my mummy would get an opportunity to visit me!
Happy for you!! :D

Nupur said...

@Nihar: Did you get to smell it today?! :) Waahh!

And yes, that's the jist of it all. The perfect match made in heaven!!

@Bhargav: I could disagree with you and say that men are happier at 30-35 because that's when 'Men grow up!'
But then... thats just me... and I don't know many men that age that well!!! :D

Nupur said...

@Ricky: *hahaha* Indian Boys and their Cricket! Lucky that your summers are around the corner... mine are about to be over. :(

@Anks: Welcome back! It surely has been a long long time.
Ans: I did not some up with the idea. Rather got trapped by asking someone else 5 ques! :D
No meetingS! How good if that'd happen all the time. ;)
