To me, happiness means caring for one another. I have a pet, and it is a Labrador dog. Its name is Dazi. It is white in colour and lives in a kennel. It barks loudly and runs very fast. I give roti, milk, bread, pedigree, calcium bones, etc., to eat. It protects our house from thieves or any other strangers. He chases all the stray dogs that tend to enter our house. It is a very faithful animal. It sleeps very little at night and keeps observing at night. I play with it and click photos of it while playing with a ball. She is more than a family member to us, and everyone loves her. Whenever she is ill, she won't eat anything, and then we take her to the vet. I give medicines with meals and take proper care. It is so much fun to have such a wonderful and faithful friend who gives a lot of happiness at home. I love my dog very much and take care of it. Being with my pet dog is true happiness to me.

Hey, 'how you doin'?'. This infamous dialogue, iconic, I might add, is a signature of Joey from the hit sitcom 'Friends'. I honestly couldn't count how many times it had made me laugh, even when I was at my lowest. The perfect life of cinema where everything seems to lead to a happy ending is the perfect run-away for me when my life seems shattered. Whenever my life seems too much to handle, I run away to my imaginary friends, with whom I can share everything. The amazingly sarcastic Chandler, the hopeless romantic Ted dedicated to finding 'The One', the motherly nature of Lily, the overprotective Finn, the 'drowning with creativity' Barney, the 'smart guy' Sheldon, they all are the friends I never had. I get scolded every single day for watching television way too much. But the truth is that I love to live another life, and coming back to my regular boring, uninteresting life just seems hectic. Even if they are just a figment of so
