Study says Northeastern state of India, Mizoram is the happiest state in the country.
Mizoram declared as the happiest state in India, according to a recent study carried out by Rajesh K Pillania, a professor of strategy at the Management Development Institute in Gurugram.
Mizoram, which is the second state in India to achieve 100 per cent literacy, offers students opportunities for growth even in the most difficult of circumstances, according to a report by the news agency ANI.
According to the study, Mizoram's happiness index is based on six parameters including family relationships, work-related issues, social issues and philanthropy, religion, COVID-19's effect on happiness, and physical and mental health.
"A student of the Government Mizo High School (GMHS) in Aizawl, Mizoram, has had to face many difficulties since his father abandoned his family when he was young. Despite this, he remains optimistic and excels in his studies. He hopes to become a chartered accountant or appear for civil services exams if his first choice does not work out," the report said.
The report stated that Mizoram's social structure also contributes to the happiness of its youth
It further reported that every child in the Mizo community, regardless of gender, starts earning early.
The report added, "No task is considered too small and youths typically find employment around the age of 16 or 17. This is encouraged, and there is no discrimination between girls and boys."
The students and teachers in the state of Mizoram also have a friendly relationship. The students do not hesitate to talk to the teachers in case they are facing any problems and so are their parents. The teachers regularly meet with students and their parents to address any sort of problems or issues they face.
As per the report, Mizoram has a huge number of "broken families" but having peers who are facing similar situations like working mothers, financial independence from an early age means children are not left bereft.
