Amritsar, Dec 3, 2016: With the rise in tension with Pakistan followed by another attack on an army base, India most likely will come up with strategies to make efforts to diplomatically handle the situation and deploy support for action against state-sponsored terrorism at the Heart of Asia conference scheduled in Amritsar from tomorrow.

After experiencing an increase in the attacks from terror groups based in Pakistan, Afghanistan is ready to urge for a counter-terrorism framework via a binding commitment at the Heart of Asia Istanbul Process. The HoA Istanbul Process is a platform provided since 2011 to assist the war-stricken country of Afghanistan during its transition, mentioned PTI.

India attempted to isolate Pakistan diplomatically after the attack in Uri on an army establishment and is likely to push it further at the Heart of Asia conference. According to PTI, India called Pakistan the “mother ship” of global terrorism at the BRICS summit, Goa in October.

Amritsar, not being very far from the Indo-Pak border is stocked up and multiple layers of security has been placed. The Indo-Pak border in Punjab is under heavy surveillance.

The major focus will obviously be dealing with terrorism because both India and Afghanistan rendered the terror emerging from Pakistan the greatest threat to peace and stability.

The representatives from over 40 countries including USA, China, Russia and Iran attending the conference will discuss the framework for effective counter-terrorism proposed by Afghanistan.

In the absence of the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who is ill, the Indian delegation will be led by the Finance Minister of India Arun Jaitley.

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
