March 20th every year is a celebration of the International Day of Happiness, as decried by a United Nations Resolution!  A high-level panel was held with UN Ambassadors and academicians in a conference room at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. 
The distinguished panelists spoke about how the day got recognized officially at the UN, and about programs around the world that are promoting happiness of the people. This is especially important in these troubled times when most people and governments are obsessed with finances instead of people’s feelings. 
The event was organized by H.E. Ambassador Hamid Al-Bayati, former Ambassador of Iraq to the UN and currently a professor at Fordham University, who led the campaign for governments make the International Day of Happiness official in the UN calendar that impressively was agreed by consensus. 
 The speakers acknowledged the country of Bhutan, whose King in 972 instituted a measure of Gross National Happiness as an alternative paradigm
 to gross national Product. 
 The UN Ambassador of Bhutan, Kunzang C. Namgyel,  who was present, made inspiring remarks.  Psychology professor and UN NGO representative Dr. Judy Kuriansky showed an outstanding original video highlighting the Bhutan initiatives at the UN, her activities, producing exciting UN events about the Happiness Day at the UN, and impressive and moving international projects that facilitate peoples’ happiness around the world, despite challenges, including in Africa, the Caribbean and the US.
  International musician Russell Daisey did a short reprise of the original song debuted at last year’s event, “Happy People, Happy Planet.” The audience was reverted by their presentations, and, understandably walked out not only inspired and informed but also happy.
