Anajli - And the State of Being

I was talking to Anjali about something and the word 'happiness' cropped up. I asked her how one can be happy?
'Smile,' she said simply.
Oh, I said, and when we are sad, then how to be happy?

'Arre,' she said, rather exasperated with all this convoluted talk. 'Why do you have to learn anything? If you are happy, be happy, if you are sad, be sad. That's all. Why do you need to learn something else.'
That ended that particular conversation.
