Indians are not happy,waiting for #AcheDin!

India is at the 117th spot out of 158 countries, in the World Happiness Report published by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), which is a global initiative for the United Nations. Switzerland has been named the most happiest country in the world.

The other countries in the top five are Iceland, Denmark, Norway and Canada. India's rank is 117, below nations like Pakistan (81), Palestine (108), Bangladesh (109), Ukraine (111) and Iraq (112).
The first World Happiness Report, released in 2012 ahead of the UN high-level meeting on Happiness and Well-being, drew international attention as a landmark first survey of the state of global happiness. This latest report digs even deeper into the data looking at country trends since the first report, regional indicators, factors in gender and age, and the importance of investing in social capital.
