India Minister of Happiness Wanted for Murder

Indian police have launched a manhunt for the country’s “happiness minister” after the state politician vanished when a court ordered his arrest over an alleged murder, reports The Guardian.

Lal Singh Arya, whose mandate is to put a smile on the faces of his 70 million constituents, is wanted in connection with the death of an opposition politician in 2009.

The happiness ministry is modeled on the “gross national happiness” index used by India’s northerly neighbor Bhutan.



  1. In India, making people happy is a cut-throat affair.

  2. Maybe he had to do it to someone he did not like so he could be happier?

  3. Brings new meaning to happy hour if you are in India. I guess the drinks are on him?
