‘What Is Happiness?’ This 79 Year-Old Father Has The Best Answer For You

Updated on 20 May, 2017 at 12:01 pm By

What are we living for? We, millennials, might not have the right answer for this because we don’t have time to ponder over this deep yet important question. But as we age, the real questions of life; Are we really happy? Where is true happiness? form the essence of our living.

Just like everyone else, I was also trying to find happiness beyond my work, and this ‘Humans Of Bombay‘ post answered everything in a few words. A 79 year-old father shared some valuable lessons that will enlighten you about life and work.

 



 

This is what he said,

 In my time, I had a successful career as the Bank Manager at Union bank for over 23 years. I’ve retired now and I’m on a pension of a few thousand Rupees a month, which may not seem like a lot — but believe me it is. Unfortunately, it’s only once you stop working that you realise that happiness can’t be bought. I’m 79, and it’s only now that I’m finding things that give me that peace and happiness.

Spending time with my wife and daughter, my walks here everyday, the sea, the shore, the little Ganpati Mandir on the banks that I like to visit when the tide is low…all of these bring me so much joy.”


“So what advice would you give to a large group of people?”
“Leave this mobile phone of yours on the side for sometime — just do nothing — sit near the sea, just be…just breathe.”
