Inspired by Bhutan, Madhya Pradesh to create ‘department of happiness’ to keep its citizens stress-free


Taking inspiration from Bhutan which focused on Happiness Index to keep its people happy, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has announced to create a ‘Ministry of Happiness’ on similar lines in the state to infuse positivity in the lives of people.

“Happiness will not come into the lives of people merely with materialistic possessions or development but by infusing positivity in their lives so that they don’t take extreme steps like suicide in distress,” Mr Chouhan said yesterday at the state BJP’s Executive meeting.
