Read a book
Nitin Dangwal

You are a perfect example of the narrow-minded view of others that I mentioned in my response to the parent article. Let’s look at your self-styled bio:

Consultant by day, writer by night. Love nature. Love devouring books. Love food-an affair sustained by even greater love for running and hitting it out in gym.

Now let’s look at the activities that you have so graciously listed as the ones in which people should engage to make their lives happier:

People today prefer not reading a book and expand the limit of their thinking, widen the horizon of their minds. 
People don’t prefer learning a new skill, add onto their capabilities, make their life better. 
People don’t prefer taking a stroll outsides, under the moonlit sky, twinkling with millions of starts and do something that connects them with nature, that makes them happy.
Reading a book is the antidote for all this.

Do you notice that everything you’ve suggested that would make people happier are all the things in which you personally engage? You devour books. You love nature. You’re a self-described writer, which, as a fellow writer, I know involves learning new skills and adding on to your own capabilities.

But you know what you missed? This is what makes you happy. And everybody else isn’t YOU.

And this is what people need to learn above all else: what works for you, isn’t what works for someone else.
