  1. All health facilities must be PATIENT and FAMILY friendly. How to achieve it is a question in our situation. Happiness centres and Happiness Therapy in the hospitals is a good initiative. Talking first time about such an approach will invite comments, doubts, critisms and suggestions. One has to be concious that hospitals are a very sensitive places; people in distress, pain and agony come to hospitals. They should get best of the treatment, well in time with empathy and comfort. Happiness centers should be sensitive and appropriate to the occasion. I agree with the idea.
