Happiness Centre

Rekhi Centre of Excellence for the Science of Happiness


Happiness is an affective, cognitive, and psychological state of well-being. It is about finding meaning and purpose in life. It is the joy experienced in sharing than receiving. In the workplace, this happiness finds reflection in the work itself, being more productive, and creative, enjoying one’s work, and being there for others.  We have often pursued the art of happiness in our understanding and practice of staying happy. But developing a scientific understanding of happiness will help individuals be more optimistic and appreciative of themselves and others.


To promote happiness at work and beyond, for a better tomorrow for individuals and the society


There are three broad objectives of the centre:

  • Individual perspective: Happiness as the doorway to insight, awareness, and orientation
  • Societal and Community Perspective: Nudging happiness through design and creativity 
  • Process Orientation: Happiness as a way of life and not a target. It is neither prescriptive nor descriptive

The Centre welcomes one and all willing to join and contribute to this pursuit of happiness, making the world a better place to live and work.
