Does having a lot of money alone person make a person Happy? NO. definitely NO . but is it really NO? then why is it yes in our deeds? All of us want to make money to gain status, comfort and luxury. This money has brought; is bringing; and will bring so many differences between some of you and me. These differences will be later named as differences between the rich and the poor. One would experience happiness when a leads a luxurious life or when one has travelled around the world or when he had his meal in the most expensive hotel. Don't you feel I have missed out something in the above examples? yes, I have missed out the actual meaning of happiness. So - What exactly is happiness? Happiness is not actually leading a luxurious life but the luxury of living a peaceful ans content life. Happiness is not having a meal in the most famous restaurant but to have it with your most beloved family. Happiness is being sincerely able to wear a smile when you feel like crying. It is to shout at the top of your voice along with your family on the victory of Indian cricket team. Happiness is all about loving life. Chasing money will lead you nowhere because Money is like that shadow that tries to escape and runaway when we chase it; and chases us when we run away. Because money is like the sand which tries to escape more, the harder we try to hold it tightly within our fists. Therefore I feel money and happiness are not interrelated but chasing money and waste of time are in every way correlated. I feel one could not gain any thing more than what he is destined to. I feel that Money is only a Necessity but happiness is The Need of life. I feel it is now easy to answer the previous question; Is Money a Prerequisite For Happiness???
