Bhutan – The land of happiness

Gross National Happiness, popularly known as GNH, is a guiding philosophy of Bhutan’s development activities. It is a philosophy of co-existence and harmony. GNH stands for the perpetuation of a holistic range of capital or resources such as, ecological, economic, social, human resource and cultural, all of which should be valued and possibly measured. Such needs are said to have been listed in the literature on principles of political philosophy. But usually their range is not comprehensive, and it often tails off with rights and freedom as catch-all categories.
