Socio-Economic Development Acceleration
A Professor brought a big empty
glass Jar, Golf balls, A box of Pebbles, A Box of Sand and a Bucket of
Water to his Class. The students were wondering, and the Professor started
filling the Jar with the Golf balls up to the brim. He asked "Is it full
?". The students said "Yes Sir. It is full". Then he took of the box of
Pebbles and poured into the Jar, shook the Jar. The Pebbles rolled into
the gap between the Golf balls and sat safely. He asked again whether the
Jar is full and the Students said yes. He then poured the Box of Sand and
it went freely into the gaps again, up to the top. He asked again whether
the Jar is full, and the Students were hesitating a little bit to answer
!!. Then he poured the water from the Bucket into the Jar. Quite a good
amount went inside and soaked into the sand, up to the brim. The students
said that they won't answer, and wondered what else may go into the Jar.
The professor said no more to
fill. But everybody should under stand that Empty or Full is relative.
There is always something thing to fill any thing, relative to the
size of objects chosen. Filled with bigger objects, there is room for
smaller objects to go in, and the reverse is not true. If the jar is
filled with Water first and tried in the reverse order, then nothing can
go in, and the Jar will be in a saturated full stage.
So is the fulfillment of one's
Desire and attaining Happiness. It is a relative feeling with reference to
the level of objectives to attain in the individual's mind. We should aim
to acquire the relatively important and bigger goals like the Family,
Children, Good health, Education, Friendship etc.. like the Golf balls.
Then aim for relatively smaller and next priorities in life like a house,
car etc.. similar to the Pebbles. The one should go to acquire still
smaller priorities of luxury items similar to the Sand and Water. This is
a rule of relative Desire and Acquisition of items, leading towards a
properly synchronised Happiness. In life also, if one goes in the reverse
desires, then there will be no room to fill the needs of more important
and high priority items.
Economic Development and its
relationship to the Happiness of the people, is also a relative linkage
between the Wealth and its Enjoyment. As the year 2004 (Y2K+4) has come to
the end, the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the Middle East region is
estimated to have improved at an average of 10 Per cent. People
should feel better of, than what they were in the beginning of 2004. The
strong performance of the region's stock markets and the surge in the real
estate prices has increased the number of Arab Millionaires. A sizeable
portion of this wealth has trickled down to the people in the lower income
bracket. The question is "Are all these persons in different income
brackets Happier ? A sample survey indicates that over 75% hesitate to
express a positive happiness level.
The complexity of unhappiness is
remotely linked to the Euro going stronger with reference to US$ (Dollar).
At the top-rich level, more $'s are needed to buy European quality and
luxury items, an offsetting development the acquired economic happiness.
At the bottom expatriate poor
worker level, $ or its related currency remittances to his poor native
country results in smaller local deposits, because the local currency is
linked to Euro (Note : Not because the poor local country has done
some economic or productive strides to make their currency strong in the
International exchange market !!. I is a notional and relational gain!!!).
At all levels, there is a common
cause for un-happiness due to the prices of essential needs comprising
food items , services and housing (the basic ingredients for happiness),
are increasing, disproportionate to the gains acquired through more money
About 800 affluent house holds in
USA expressed a feeling that un-rich should be more happier than
them, as per a report in the Los Angeles Times of January 14, 2004. In
this survey, more than 50% said that acquiring more wealth did not bring
more happiness, and about 33% firmly said that money brought more
problems, than it solved.
The answer is not in the Supply
and Demand curve. But all other analysis to measure the correlation
between the income and standard of living too, are not able to confirm the
answer for this relationship between the Tangible wealth and Intangible
Happiness !!! People who have moved up in the income ladder do attest that
money is able to buy some happiness. But beyond some income level, people
do not get more happier. So far Governments are using the growth of GDP as
a measure to the Social well being and Happier life. But it is still a
vague relation builder!!!
Although improvement in material
well being makes people happy, they are relative to the time and the
habituation of the society. For example, TV and Mobile phones, which were
considered as a luxuries about 10 years before, has become an essential
item even for those in the lowest level of domestic living, in the current
millennium. Other important factor is the psychology of the people to
compare their living situation with others. This vitiates the dimension of
happiness to a relative scale between people and the society around.
Unemployment, Poverty and the Feeling of insecurity are major source of
unhappiness. Hence, the role of the governments should be to enlarge the
promotion of conditions that will induct more happiness to the people,
than be happy with increasing GDP as a closed shell indicator.
Do public and private sectors
promote happiness, through shorter working hours, more vacations, increase
in salaries etc... It is tried in Germany with 35 hour work week, with a
host of provisions for staff enjoyment. But still the rate of Depression
among Germans is high !!! In all brackets of income, the people in USA are
supposed to be at a higher plane than those in other countries. But the
crime rate in USA is not only large, but it is increasing in direct
proportion with more development, and with more sources for higher income.
Hence, in the last decades, those
priorities which were considered as low importance which could fill
to the brim and leave no room to get the essential needs, have moved
upward to occupy the gaps of prime / essential needs in the current
decade. This is a forward development in the Environment and Ecology. No
body can stop this.
are like the Golf balls, Pebbles, Sand and Water changing their shapes.
One does not know what to fill first . Clinically it is like the AIDS
virus changing its DNA signature, so that no designated antibiotic can
kill it. At any point of time, one cannot understand what
ingredients should go into the making his / her happiness !!! Is there any
cure for it ?
Yes »» By
Happiness is a
Complex and Aggregate combination of Tangible
(TEE) Wealth and the
Intangible (EYE) feelings.
Acquisition of Tangible material wealth, in the order of priorities
demonstrated by the Jar filling experiment in the beginning, do bring
Happiness. It is true that Money and what it can buy are tools
to buy Happiness !! But the acquired happiness through the
Tangible money, is moderated towards its end effect by a broad-based
Intangible feelings that get into one's Mind and ultimately
into his / her Hearts !! The span of the EYE (I) ntangibles
Psychological : Safety and
Confidence to face pre-conditions/tests etc..., Cost of essential needs,
Expected and end-results, Health, Security/facility for continued living,
Targets and achievements etc...
: Relationship ingredients
Apartheid, Behaviour of the family members, Calm or disturbed
neighborhood, Influence of social divisions, Language, Social group
activities around etc...
: Administrative and Environment surroundings
Affectionate or terrorist surrounding, Apartheid,
Availability/quality/reliability and hardships to get the essential &
other needs, Clean or shabby locality, Confirmed/disturbed/strike-prone
public facilities, Direct/indirect taxes, Disciplines imposed by the local
authorities, Employer/labour relationships, Human rights, Justice,
Security/safety for self, family, tangible possession, etc...
: Congenial or Disturbed status.
Customs/immigration/tax rules, Favourable or unreliable local currency
exchange rate, Export/Import policies, Peace or war situation, Monitory
possession/remittance/tax policies, Probability of terrorist attacks,
Reliability/safety of international transport facilities, Visa
extension/issue hardships, Treatment to citizens/expatriates etc...
: Geographical and Nature's impacts
Atmospheric stability, Actual/Expected rain situations, Cold & Heat
balance, Conditions for continued/reliable availability of food & other
items, Desert/Fertile environment, Possibilities of disturbances by Earth
quake, Hurricane, Oceanic, Volcanic, Tornado etc...
The above list
establishes the fact that Intangible items are more important than
the Tangible money and wealth to create happiness into one's mind (EYE
> TEE). If both are syncronised and
joggled properly, Tangible money and wealth can induct Intangible
Happiness. Mathematicaly it is
Aggregate of T and E from I to H =
EXPO (IN SLIDES)
Analysis of the the Aggregate and
Complex combination between Tangible wealth and Intangible ingredients of
Happiness, lead to the inference that all nations, irrespective of their
current level of development status, should implement certain new norms

THEME JOKE ON HAPPINESS
Bombay TV during 1970s + Ingenous & Original additions
Villager went for a city visit, with a bag full of 150 "Pori
(Pori = Puffed Rise. Urundai = Ball), a light, tasty and pleasure
optimising sweet balls, made by his Grand Mother, back at home
On an early morning, he was looking at the High Rise
buildings with wonder, from Bottom to the Top,
simultaneously eating at a rate of one Urundai per floor.
has mathematically planned this innovative combination of
eating and seeing. When he completed the full sight
of the first building up-to the top floor, he counted the
Urundais, and found to
be 125. He subtracted 125 from 150 and got 25. He noted in his
diary that he has seen a building of 25 floor tall, and 125 Urundais
are left over. He continued this error free floor counting, through
a 2 fold utilisation of the Urundies, deriving a 3 fold satisfaction
for his mind, stomach and tongue simultaneously !!
A City Idler saw this villager and made a nice plan to make some
money. He came near the villager and said in a Fighting tone,
"You cannot see these Hi-rise buildings for free. To see
floor, you have to pay at Rupees (Rs) 10".
The villager was calm, cool and continued his eating and seeing. As
an exchange of is gesture and good will, he offered one Urundai to
the city fellow.
But the city fellow was stern and asked the villager "Which floor
you are looking at ? Say that first...".
The Villager said "I do not know. I cannot tell you, unless I count
the left over Urundais... Also, I cannot count the Urundais, unless
I complete my seeing. So, please wait.. To make your waiting
comfortable, I will count and give you 5 Urundais. You please eat
them, sitting on this wall behind us..."
The city fellow was attracted by the flavour and smoothness of the
Urundais, and at the same time did not want to loose time. It was
because, if the time goes up others may get up, come, interfere and
spoil his intelligent deal. Hence, he decided to accept the 5
Urundais offered by the villager, and ordered sternly "I have to go
for my work. I am not afford to wait here. Immediately tell me
approximately which floor you are looking at ?"
The vilager said "5 Urundais means 5 Floors. Don't you know this
simple arithmetic ?".
The Idler immediately demanded Rs 50.
The villager said "OK. Pay me 10 Rupees back.
I sell these Urundais
at Rs 12
. So you have 60 Rupees in hand... Take 50
Rupees and return 10 immediately"
The Idler was taken back and immediately returned the Urundais. But
the villager said "Once you have accepted it, I do not take it
back". By the time, the morning crowd started gathering, and some
were eager to know what was happening between the Idler and the
Villager. Also, by the time the villager has completed seeing
a building, and started counting the left over Urundais.
He counted and said "I have seen 11 floors in this building. So I
have to pay you Rs 110. You already have my Rs 60. So 110 minus 60
is 50. So, please accept this 50 Rupees and go away immediately".
The Idler went away happily, because
he made a free Rs 50,
plus 5 tasty Pori Urundais on that morning, by his intelligence !!.
The Villager then laughed, and said to
himself that The City people are fools". I have only 72 Urundais
left over. 150 minus 72 is 78. Minus 5 given to the city fellow is
73. It means, I have seen 73 floors, so far!!! . Instead of
paying 730 Rupees, I paid only 50. So, I have saved 680 plus I
have sold the 5 Urundais for 60.
So, today I have made 740 Rupees by my shrewdness !! I am very happy
Moral : Both are Happy. One is
and the other is
. Dont you agree that Happiness is Relative to How you think !!!!!
