Identifies the nature of well--being through analysis of in--depth interviews with Indians on what good life means to them

This book explains well-being through insights gathered from qualitative interviews with Indians from different walks of life. It shows that well-being is mixed and transient, shifting in interactions. It reveals the universals that lead to well-being, bringing out interlinkages between health, wealth, and pleasure. Explaining variations by gender, class, age, and individual choice, the book highlights the distinctive insights in Indian religious traditions about life satisfaction.
