Once I was driving my nissan through a very busy local market in the village of Tsorena in central Eritrea. Amidst the crowd, I saw a women buying a donkey for herself to carry water from the pond to her home. I could see the palpable happiness of that little women after she clinched the deal. She was all smiles and exuberant. I was suddenly reminded of my feelings when I became a proud owner of my ford car back home in India three months ago.
Happiness is a state of mind. It doesn't really matter whether you own a ford or a donkey!!
