According to Reuters, a 22-year-old college graduate named Hannah Hemperley has also planned to don the costume and dress up as ‘nasty woman’. “When (Trump) was calling (Clinton) a ‘nasty woman,’ I think I just felt solidarity with Hillary,” said Hemperly, who is from Chicago and has planned to vote for the Democratic nominee.

Jake West, working at a Chicago-based architecture firm, stated that he has planned to assemble a group of friends and dress as a ‘basket of deplorables’, referring to Hillary Clinton’s infamous put-down during a fundraiser of some of the supporters of Trump. “Because that word, that phrase, ‘basket of deplorables’ has been flying around so much” is West’s reason to dress up like that, quoted Reuters.

Cory Campbell, hailing from Virginia, said that he has plans to dress up to look like Ken Bone, the moustachioed audience with the red sweater, who landed as a social-media sensation post his act of cutting into the campaign acrimony to ask a question concerning the energy policy during a Presidential Debate on 9th October.

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

By Aishwarya Jain

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.
