Our Pride Bangladesh Score 11 in Happy planet index. Above India,Pakistan even USA . Ya we Bangladeshi are really Happy in our mind .
But many people questioned how a poor country like us can be happy—
Happiness is emotions and feelings that we have when our material and spiritual demands are satisfied. it is very hard to define happiness fully and each person seems to have his own definition.
Material things do not necessarily bring you happiness. That is a fact of life. It is a hard fact to understand sometimes
” No matter how much money you make, you always want more. So if you make 25,000 you believe that if you just made 50,000 you would be happy ,100,000 you would be happy, and so on through life. This pattern is true whether you make 25,000 or 10,000,000 a year, because as you earn more money you acquire more expensive tastes ,so where is Happiness ?
For example, when a businessman has a comfortable life with a big house , a good car, a beautiful wife and lovely children. He can feels unsatisfied with his life and can say that he is not achieve happiness. However, even a rickshaw puller in Dhaka who has to work hard everyday in the road can achieve happiness. He loves his job ,feels pleased with his daily work results and has sound sleep at night. he can also say that he ‘s a happy if he believe he is happy . Sometimes, happiness is very simple such as a kiss from a lover, a hug from friends, a smile from a stranger or a comfort from natural beauty.
Life Has Meaning Through God
Most religions contain a concept of Heaven or an afterlife. Islam, for example, believe in an eternal life through belief in Allah and praying Namaj .
——By believing in God, Heaven and an afterlife, life has meaning because it is not an end in itself. Instead, life is part of an ongoing and eternal process. The life we have on earth is just one small step.
And Historically Bangladeshi peoples are religious and practice spirituality .without some tiny conflicts , people practice religious freedom । you will see our solidarity and level of happiness .
