In November 2001 another dimension was laid on Happiness as an Art-project, when I was taught on dr
Kataria's School of Laughter
Yoga, in Mumbai, India and
learned its methods and philosophy.In India I also
took every opportunity to interview and learn from the people I met, from all parts of the society. Happiness as
the underpriveliged find it was examined during my stay
at the ashram of Kasturbha Savodaya Mandal in Madhan,
the province of Maharashtra. There I also celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights, which is to honour Lakshmi, the goddess of happiness.
People look on happiness both in similar and opposite ways, compared to in the western world. This was obvious thru' discussions with wealthy, as well as people so poor they hardly owned the clothes that they were wearing.
