Since the concept of Gross National Happiness was initiated in Bhutan in the seventies, the country has made efforts to translate an emotion into a political standard. One recent attempt is the opening of the GNH Centre Bhutan.
Bhutan is not a casual drop-in kind of country. Located east of the Himalayas, it is bordered by Tibet to the north, and separated from Nepal by India’s Sikkim province. Bhutan recently made news with its voluntary segue from absolute to constitutional monarchy. It is also famous for creating the concept of “Gross National Happiness”.
