“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down, ‘Happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, I told them, they didn’t understand life.”
Studies over years show us that happiness is a skill that can be practiced and acquired. Of the 8 top ways to develop happiness, one is “be a part of an activity that makes you smile”.
This is where we come in. Being part of an activity like drawing kolams, is a great way to embark on the happiness journey. Draw it, be proud of it, smile at it.
Shyama, one who is dark-hued, is a pretty one to draw. She also reminds us to rise above darkness and negativity and pursue happiness.
